Comparison is not to be made with God, because our good or evil cannot extend unto him.
Job 35:1 Elihu spoke moreover, and said, Job 35:2 Thinkest thou this to be right, [that] thou saidst, My righteousness [is] more than God's? Job 35:3 For thou saidst, What advantage will it be to thee? [and], What profit shall I have, [if I be cleansed] from my sin? Job 35:4 I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee. Job 35:5 Look to the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds [which] are higher than thou. Job 35:6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or [if] thy transgressions are multiplied, what doest thou to him? Job 35:7 If thou art righteous, what givest thou to him? or what receiveth he from thy hand? Job 35:8 Thy wickedness [may hurt] a man as thou [art]: and thy righteousness [may profit] the son of man.
Many cry in their afflictions, but are not heard for want of faith.
Job 35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make [the oppressed] to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty. Job 35:10 But none saith, Where [is] God my maker, who giveth songs in the night; Job 35:11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? Job 35:12 There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Job 35:13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it. Job 35:14 Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, [yet] judgment [is] before him; therefore trust thou in him. Job 35:15 But now, because [it is] not [so], he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth [it] not in great extremity: Job 35:16 Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.
