Comparison is not to be made with God, because our good or evil cannot extend unto him.
Job 35:1 Therfor Helyu spak eft these thingis, Whethir thi thouyt semeth euene, Job 35:2 ether riytful, to thee, that thou schuldist seie, Y am riytfulere than God? Job 35:3 For thou seidist, That, that is good, plesith not thee; ethir what profitith it to thee, if Y do synne? Job 35:4 Therfor Y schal answere to thi wordis, and to thi frendis with thee. Job 35:5 Se thou, and biholde heuene, and biholde thou the eir, that God is hiyere than thou. Job 35:6 If thou synnest ayens hym, what schalt thou anoye hym? and if thi wickidnessis ben multiplied, what schalt thou do ayens hym? Job 35:7 Certis if thou doist iustli, what schalt thou yyue to hym; ether what schal he take of thin hond? Job 35:8 Thi wickidnesse schal anoie a man, which is lijk thee; and thi riytfulnesse schal helpe the sone of a man.
Many cry in their afflictions, but are not heard for want of faith.
Job 35:9 Thei schulen cry for the multitude of fals chalengeris, and thei schulen weile for the violence of the arm of tirauntis. Job 35:10 And Joob seide not, Where is God, that made me, and that yaf songis in the nyyt? Job 35:11 Which God techith vs aboue the beestis of erthe, and he schal teche vs aboue the briddis of heuene. Job 35:12 There thei schulen crye, and God schal not here, for the pride of yuele men. Job 35:13 For God schal not here with out cause, and Almyyti God schal biholde the causis of ech man. Job 35:14 Yhe, whanne thou seist, He biholdith not; be thou demed bifor hym, and abide thou hym. Job 35:15 For now he bryngith not in his strong veniaunce, nether vengith greetli felonye. Job 35:16 Therfor Joob openith his mouth in veyn, and multiplieth wordis with out kunnyng.
