Elihu sheweth how God is just in his ways.
Job 36:1 Eliu proceaded forth in his talkinge, & sayde: Job 36:2 holde the still a litle, and I shal shewe the, what I haue yet to speake on Gods behalfe. Job 36:3 I wil open vnto ye yet more of myne vnderstondinge, and proue my maker rightuous. Job 36:4 True are my wordes, & no lye: and the knowlege wherwithall I argue agaynst the, is perfecte. Job 36:5 Beholde, God casteth not awaye ye mightie, for he himselff is mightie in power and wisdome. Job 36:6 As for the vngodly, he preserueth the not but helpeth the poore to their right. Job 36:7 He turneth not his eyes awaye from the rightuous he setteth vp kynges in their Trone, and cofirmeth them, so that they allwaye syt therin. Job 36:8 But yf they be layed in preson and cheynes, or bounde with the bondes of pouerte: Job 36:9 then sheweth he them their workes ad dedes and the synnes wherwt they haue vsed cruell violence. Job 36:10 He with punyshinge and nurturinge off them, rowneth them in the eares, warneth them to leaue of from their wickednesse, and to amende. Job 36:11 Yf they now will take hede and be obedient, they shall weere out their dayes in prosperite, and their yeares in pleasure ad ioye. Job 36:12 But yff they will not obeye, they shall go thorow the swearde, & perish or euer they be awarre. Job 36:13 As for soch as be fayned, dyssemblers and ypocrytes, they heape vp wrath for them selues: for they call not vpon him, though they be his presoners. Job 36:14 Thus their soule perisheth in foolishnesse, and their lyfe wt ye condened. Job 36:15 The poore delyuereth he out of his straytnesse, and comforteth soch as be in necessite and trouble.
How Job's sins hinder God's blessings.
Job 36:16 Euen so shall he kepe the (yf thou wilt be content) from the bottomlesse pytte that is beneth: & yf thou wilt holde the quyete, he shal fyll thy table with plenteousnesse. Job 36:17 Neuerthelesse, thou hast condemned the iudgment of the vngodly, yee euen soch a iudgment and sentence shalt thou suffre. Job 36:18 For then shal not thy cause be stilled with crueltie, ner pacified with many giftes. Job 36:19 Hath God ordened then, that the glorious life off the & all soch mightie men shulde not be put downe? Job 36:20 Prolonge not thou the tyme, till there come a night for the, to set other people in thy steade. Job 36:21 But bewarre that thou turne not asyde to wickednesse and synne, which hyther to thou hast chosen more then mekenesse. Job 36:22 Beholde, God is of a mightie hye power: Where is there soch a gyde and lawegeuer as he? Job 36:23 Who wil reproue him of his waye? who wil saye vnto him: thou hast done wronge?
God's works are to be magnified.
Job 36:24 O considre how greate and excellent his workes be, whom all men loaue and prayse: Job 36:25 yee wondre at him, and yet they se him but afarre of. Job 36:26 Beholde, so greate is God, that he passeth oure knowlege, nether are we able to come to ye experiece of his yeares. Job 36:27 He turneth ye water to smaldroppes, he dryueth his cloudes Job 36:28 together for to rayne, so that they poure downe and droppe vpon men. Job 36:29 He can sprede out the cloudes (a couerynge off his tabernacle) Job 36:30 and cause his light to shyne vpo them, and to couer the botome of the see. Job 36:31 By these thinges gouerneth he his people, and geueth the abundaunce of meate. Job 36:32 In ye turnynge of a hande he hydeth the light, & at his commaundement it commeth agayne. Job 36:33 The rysinge vp therof sheweth he to his frendes and to the catell.
