Comparison is not to be made with God, because our good or evil cannot extend unto him.
Job 35:1 And Elihu answereth and saith: Job 35:2 This hast thou reckoned for judgment: Thou hast said'My righteousness [is] more than God's?' Job 35:3 For thou sayest, 'What doth it profit Thee! What do I profit from my sin?' Job 35:4 I return thee words, and thy friends with thee, Job 35:5 Behold attentively the heavensand see, And behold the clouds, They have been higher than thou. Job 35:6 If thou hast sinned, what dost thou against Him? And thy transgressions have been multiplied, What dost thou to Him? Job 35:7 If thou hast been righteous, What dost thou give to Him? Or what from thy hand doth He receive? Job 35:8 For a man like thyself [is] thy wickedness, And for a son of man thy righteousness.
Many cry in their afflictions, but are not heard for want of faith.
Job 35:9 Because of the multitude of oppressions They cause to cry out, They cry because of the arm of the mighty. Job 35:10 And none said, 'Where [is] God my maker? Giving songs in the night, Job 35:11 Teaching us more than the beasts of the earth, Yea, than the fowl of the heavens He maketh us wiser.' Job 35:12 There they cry, and He doth not answer, Because of the pride of evil doers. Job 35:13 Surely vanity God doth not hear, And the Mighty doth not behold it. Job 35:14 Yea, though thou sayest thou dost not behold Him, Judgment [is] before Him, and stay for Him. Job 35:15 And, now, because there is not, He hath appointed His anger, And He hath not known in great extremity. Job 35:16 And Job [with] vanity doth open his mouth, Without knowledge words he multiplieth.
