Elihu sheweth how God is just in his ways.
Job 36:1 And Elihu addeth and saith: Job 36:2 Honour me a little, and I shew thee, That yet for God [are] words. Job 36:3 I lift up my knowledge from afar, And to my Maker I ascribe righteousness. Job 36:4 For, truly, my words [are] not false, The perfect in knowledge [is] with thee. Job 36:5 Lo, God [is] mighty, and despiseth not, Mighty [in] power [and] heart. Job 36:6 He reviveth not the wicked, And the judgment of the poor appointeth; Job 36:7 He withdraweth not from the righteous His eyes, And [from] kings on the throne, And causeth them to sit for ever, and they are high, Job 36:8 And if prisoners in fetters They are captured with cords of affliction, Job 36:9 Then He declareth to them their work, And their transgressions, Because they have become mighty, Job 36:10 And He uncovereth their ear for instruction, And saith that they turn back from iniquity. Job 36:11 If they do hear and serve, They complete their days in good, And their years in pleasantness. Job 36:12 And if they do not hearken, By the dart they pass away, And expire without knowledge. Job 36:13 And the profane in heart set the face, They cry not when He hath bound them. Job 36:14 Their soul dieth in youth, And their life among the defiled. Job 36:15 He draweth out the afflicted in his affliction, And uncovereth in oppression their ear.
How Job's sins hinder God's blessings.
Job 36:16 And also He moved thee from a strait place, [To] a broad placeno straitness under it, And the sitting beyond of thy table Hath been full of fatness. Job 36:17 And the judgment of the wicked thou hast fulfilled, Judgment and justice are upheldbecause of fury, Job 36:18 Lest He move thee with a stroke, And the abundance of an atonement turn thee not aside. Job 36:19 Doth He value thy riches? He hath gold, and all the forces of power. Job 36:20 Desire not the night, For the going up of peoples in their stead. Job 36:21 Take heeddo not turn unto iniquity, For on this thou hast fixed Rather than [on] affliction. Job 36:22 Lo, God doth sit on high by His power, Who [is] like Hima teacher? Job 36:23 Who hath appointed unto Him his way? And who said, 'Thou hast done iniquity?'
God's works are to be magnified.
Job 36:24 Remember that thou magnify His work That men have beheld. Job 36:25 All men have looked on it, Man looketh attentively from afar. Job 36:26 Lo, God [is] high, And we know not the number of His years, Yea, there [is] no searching. Job 36:27 When He doth diminish droppings of the waters, They refine rain according to its vapour, Job 36:28 Which clouds do drop, They distil on man abundantly. Job 36:29 Yea, doth [any] understand The spreadings out of a cloud? The noises of His tabernacle? Job 36:30 Lo, He hath spread over it His light, And the roots of the sea He hath covered, Job 36:31 For by them He doth judge peoples, He giveth food in abundance. Job 36:32 By two palms He hath covered the light, And layeth a charge over it in meeting, Job 36:33 He sheweth by it [to] his friend substance, Anger against perversity.
