Comparison is not to be made with God, because our good or evil cannot extend unto him.
Job 35:1 Elihu spake moreouer, & sayde: Job 35:2 Thynkest thou it ryght, that thou sayest: I am ryghtuous before God? Job 35:3 For thou sayest: What aduauntage will it be vnto the, and what profyt shalt þu haue of my synne. Job 35:4 Therfore will I geue answere vnto the and to thy companyons wyth the Job 35:5 loke vnto the heauen, and beholde it: consydre the cloudes, whych are hyer then thou. Job 35:6 If thou hast synned, what hast thou done against him? If thine offences be many, what hast thou done vnto hym? Job 35:7 If thou be ryghtuous what geuest thou him? Or what will he receaue of thy hand? Job 35:8 Of soche an vngodly personne as thou, and of the sonne of man that is ryghtuous 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 cry and complaynte made by them that are oppressed wyth vyolence, yee, euery man complayneth vpon the crueltye of tyrauntes. Job 35:10 For soche a one neuer sayeth: Where is God that made me? & that geueth vs occasion to prayse him in þe night? Job 35:11 Whych geueth vs more vnderstandyng then he doth the beastes of the earth, & teacheth vs more then he doth the foules of heauen. Job 35:12 If any soch complayne, no man geueth answere, and that because of the wyckednesse of proude tyrauntes. Job 35:13 But yf a man call vpon God, doth not he heare him? Doth not the almyghtye accepte his crye? Job 35:14 Whan thou speakest then, shulde not he pardon the, yf þu open thy selfe before hym, and put thy trust in hym? Job 35:15 Then vseth he no vyolence in hys wrath, nether hath he pleasure in curyous & depe inquysycions. Job 35:16 Therfore doth Iob open hys mouth but in vayne, and folyshly doth he make so many wordes.
