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 right, that thou hast said, I am more righteous then God? Job 35:3 For thou hast said, What profiteth it thee and what auaileth it me, to purge me fro my sinne? Job 35:4 Therefore will I answere thee, & thy companions with thee. Job 35:5 Looke vnto the heauen, and see and behold the cloudes which are hyer then thou. Job 35:6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him, yea, when thy sinnes be many, what doest thou vnto him? Job 35:7 If thou be righteous, what giuest thou vnto him? or what receiueth he at thine hand? Job 35:8 Thy wickednesse may hurt a man as thou art: and thy righteousnes may profite ye sonne of man.
Many cry in their afflictions, but are not heard for want of faith.
Job 35:9 They cause many that are oppressed, to crye, which crye out for ye violence of the mightie. Job 35:10 But none saieth, Where is God that made me, which giueth songs in the nyght? Job 35:11 Which teacheth vs more then the beastes of the earth, and giueth vs more wisdome then the foules of the heauen. Job 35:12 Then they crye because of the violence of the wicked, but he answereth not. Job 35:13 Surely God will not heare vanitie, neyther will the Almightie regard it. Job 35:14 Although thou sayest to God, Thou wilt not regard it, yet iudgement is before him: trust thou in him. Job 35:15 But nowe because his anger hath not visited, nor called to count the euill with great extremitie, Job 35:16 Therfore Iob openeth his mouth in vaine, and multiplieth wordes without knowledge.
