Comparison is not to be made with God, because our good or evil cannot extend unto him.
Job 35:1 Eliu spake morouer, and sayde: Job 35:2 Thinkest thou it right that thou sayest: I am rightuous before God Job 35:3 Seinge thou sayest so, how doest thou knowe it? What thinge hast thou more excellet, the I yt am a synner? Job 35:4 Therfore will I geue answere vnto the & thy frendes: Job 35:5 loke vnto the heaue, & beholde it: cosidre ye cloudes, how they are hyer then thou. Job 35:6 Yf thou synnest, what dost thou vnto him? Yf thine offences be many, how gettest thou his fauoure? Job 35:7 Yf thou be rightuous, what geuest thou him? Or, what receaueth he of thy handes? Job 35:8 Of soch an vngodly personne as thou, & of ye sonne of man that is rightuous as thou pretendest to be:
Many cry in their afflictions, but are not heard for want of faith.
Job 35:9 there is a greate crie & coplaynte made by the that are oppressed with violence, yee eueryman complayneth vpon the cruell arme of tyrauntes. Job 35:10 For soch one neuer sayeth: Where is God that made me? ad yt shyneth vpon vs, that we might prayse him in the night? Job 35:11 Which geueth vs more vnderstodinge then he doth the beastes of the earth, and teacheth vs more then the foules off heaue. Job 35:12 Yf eny soch complayne, no ma geueth answere, and yt because of the wickednesse off proude tyrauntes. Job 35:13 But yf a man call vpon God, doth not he heare him? Doth not the Almightie accepte his crie? Job 35:14 Wha thou speakest then, shulde not he pardon the, yff thou open thyself before him, and put thy trust in him? Job 35:15 Then vseth he no violence in his wrath nether hath he pleasure in curious and depe inquisicions. Job 35:16 Therfore hath Iob opened his mouth but in vayne, ad folishly hath he made so many wordes.
