Comparison is not to be made with God, because our good or evil cannot extend unto him.
Job 35:1 Elihu spake moreouer, and said, Job 35:2 Thinkest thou this to bee right, [that] thou saydest, My righteousnesse [is] more then Gods? Job 35:3 For thou saydst, what aduantage will it bee vnto thee, [and], what profite shall I haue, [if I bee cleansed] from my sinne? Job 35:4 I will answere thee, and thy companions with thee. Job 35:5 Looke vnto the heauens and see, and behold the clouds [which] are higher then thou. Job 35:6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or [if] thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou vnto him? Job 35:7 If thou be righteous, what giuest thou him? or what receiueth hee of thine hand? Job 35:8 Thy wickednesse [may hurt] a man as thou art, and thy righteousnesse [may profit] the sonne of man.
Many cry in their afflictions, but are not heard for want of faith.
Job 35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make [the oppressed] to crie: they crie out by reason of the arme of the mightie. Job 35:10 But none saith, where is God my maker, who giueth songs in the night? Job 35:11 Who teacheth vs more then the beasts of the earth, and maketh vs wiser then the foules of heauen. Job 35:12 There they crie, (but none giueth answere) because of the pride of euill men. Job 35:13 Surely God wil not heare vanitie, neither wil the Almightie regard it. Job 35:14 Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet iudgement [is] before him, therefore trust thou in him. Job 35:15 But now because it [is] not so, hee hath visited in his anger, yet he knoweth it not in great extremitie: Job 35:16 Therefore doeth Iob open his mouth in vaine: he multiplieth words without knowledge.
