1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
34:1 ¶ Furthermore Elihu responded, and said:
34:2 Hear, ye wise men, my words, and, ye who know, give ear unto me;
34:3 For, the ear, trieth words, as, the palate, tasteth in eating.
34:4 What is right, let us choose for ourselves, Let us know, among ourselves, what is good;
34:5 For Job hath saidI am righteous, But, GOD, hath turned away my right;
34:6 Concerning mine own right, shall I tell a falsehood? Incurable is my diseasenot for any transgression.
34:7 What man is like Job? He drinketh in scoffing like water;
34:8 And is on the way to keep company, with the workers of iniquity, and to walk with lawless men.
34:9 For he hath said, It profiteth not a man, when, his good pleasure, is with God.
34:10 ¶ Wherefore, ye men of mind, hearken unto me,Far be it, that, GOD, should be lawless, or, the Almighty, be perverse!
34:11 For, what any son of earth doeth, he repayeth him, and, according to every man's course, he causeth him to find.
34:12 Nay, verily, GOD, will not condemn unjustly,nor, the Almighty, pervert justice.
34:13 Who set him in charge of the earth? Or who appointed [him] the whole world?
34:14 If he should set against him his heart, His spirit and his inspiration, unto himself he should withdraw.
34:15 All flesh together, would cease to breathe, and, the earth-born, unto dust, would return.
34:16 ¶ If then [thou hast] understanding, hear this, Give thou ear to the teaching of my words:
34:17 Shall, the very hater of right, control? Or, the justthe mighty one, wilt thou condemn?
34:18 Doth one say to a king, Abandoned one! Or, Lawless one! unto nobles?
34:19 For he hath shewn no respect of persons unto princes, neither hath he recognised the rich rather than the poor? For, the work of his hands, are they all.
34:20 In a moment, they die, even in the middle of the night,A people are convulsed when they pass away, A mighty one is removed, without hand;
34:21 For, his eyes, are on the ways of a man, and, all his footsteps, he beholdeth,
34:22 No darkness, and no death-shade, where the workers of iniquity may hide.
34:23 For, unto no man, doth he appoint a repetition,in going unto GOD in judgment;
34:24 He shattereth mighty ones unsearchably, and setteth up others in their stead:
34:25 Therefore, he observeth their works,and overturneth [them] in a night, and they are crushed;
34:26 In the place of lawless men, hath he chastised them, in presence of beholders.
34:27 Forasmuch, as they turned from following him, and, none of his ways, did they teach;
34:28 Causing to reach him the outcry of the poor, Yea, the outcry of the oppressed, he heareth.
34:29 When, he, giveth quiet, who then shall condemn? And, when he hideth [his] face, who then shall sing of him? whether unto a nation or unto mankind altogether,
34:30 That impious men may not reign, nor be ensnarers of the people.
34:31 ¶ For, unto GOD, hath one [ever] saidI have borne punishment, I will not be perverse;
34:32 What I see not, do, thou, shew me, If, perverseness, I have wrought, I will do it no more?
34:33 According to thy mind, must he requite it, that thou hast refused? For, thou, must choose, and not, I, What then thou knowest, speak!
34:34 The men of mind, will say to me, yea any wise man hearkening unto me:
34:35 Job, without knowledge, doth speak, and, his words, are not with discretion.
34:36 Would that Job might be tested to the uttermost, for replying with the men of iniquity:
34:37 For he addethunto his sinrebellion, In our midst, he clappeth his hands, and multiplieth his sayings against GOD.
