Comparison is not to be made with God, because our good or evil cannot extend unto him.
Job 35:1 Moreover Elihu, responded and said: Job 35:2 This, dost thou think to be right? Thou hast saidMy righteousness is more than GOD'S. Job 35:3 For thou dost say, How can one profit by thee? How can I benefit, more than by my sin? Job 35:4 I, will answer thee plainly, and thy friends with thee. Job 35:5 Look at the heavens and see,and survey the skiesthey are higher than thou. Job 35:6 If thou sinnest, what canst thou work against him? Or, if thy transgressions be multiplied, what canst thou do unto him? Job 35:7 If thou art righteous, what canst thou give unto him? Or what, at thy hand, can he accept? Job 35:8 Unto a man like thyself, might thy lawlessness [reach], and, unto a son of the earth-born, thy righteousness.
Many cry in their afflictions, but are not heard for want of faith.
Job 35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions, [men] make outcry, They cry for help, by reason of the arm of the mighty; Job 35:10 But none saithWhere is GOD my maker, Who giveth songs in the night; Job 35:11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and, beyond the bird of the heavens, giveth us wisdom? Job 35:12 There, [men] make outcry, and he answereth not, because of the arrogance of evil-doers. Job 35:13 Howbeit, vanity, will GOD not hear, Yea, the Almighty, will not regard it. Job 35:14 How much less when thou sayest thou wilt not regard him! The cause, is before him, and thou must wait for him. Job 35:15 But, now, because it is not so, [thou sayest]His anger hath punished, and yet hath he not at all known of transgression; Job 35:16 Thus, Job, vainly openeth his mouth, Without knowledge, he multiplieth words.
