1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
36:1 ¶ And Elihu added and said:
36:2 Restrain thyself for me a little, and I will shew thee, that, yetfor GOD, there is justification,
36:3 I will bring my knowledge from afar, and, to my Maker, will I attribute righteousness.
36:4 For, of a truthnot false, are my words, One of competent knowledge, is with thee.
36:5 ¶ Lo! GOD, is mighty, yet will he not despise, Mighty in vigour of mind;
36:6 He will not keep alive one who is lawless, but, the right of oppressed ones, will he grant;
36:7 He will not withdrawfrom a righteous onehis eyes,but, with kings on the throne, He hath seated men triumphantly, and they have been exalted.
36:8 But, if, bound in fetters, they have been captured with cords of affliction,
36:9 Then hath he declared to them their deed, and their transgressionsthat they were wont to behave themselves proudly;
36:10 Thus hath he uncovered their ear to a warning, and saidthat they should turn from iniquity.
36:11 If they would hearken, and serve, they should complete their days, in prosperity, and their years, in pleasantness;
36:12 But, if they would not hearken, by a weapon, should they pass away, and breathe their last, no one knowing.
36:13 Yea, the impious in heart, should store up anger, They should not cry for help, when he bound them.
36:14 Their soul should die in youth, and their life, among the unclean.
36:15 ¶ He would deliver the humbled in his humiliation, and would uncoverin oppressiontheir ear.
36:16 Yea he might even have allured theeout of the mouth of straitness, [into] a wide spaceno narrowness there,and, the food set down on thy table, should have been full of fatness.
36:17 But, with the plea of a lawless one, thou art full, Plea and sentence, will take fast hold.
36:18 Because there is wrath, [beware] lest he take thee away with a stroke, Then let not, a great ransom, mislead thee.
36:19 Will he value thy riches? Nay not precious ore, nor all the forces of strength.
36:20 Do not pant for the night, when peoples disappear from their place.
36:21 Beware, do not turn unto iniquity, For, this, thou hast chosen rather than affliction.
36:22 Lo, GOD, exalteth himself by his strength, Who like him doth teach?
36:23 Who enjoined on him his way? and who ever said, Thou hast wrought perversity?
36:24 ¶ Remember, that thou extol his work, of which men have sung;
36:25 Every son of earth, hath viewed it, Mortal man, looketh at it from afar.
36:26 Lo, GOD, is greater than we can know, The number of his years, even past finding out!
36:27 For he draweth up drops of water, They trickle as rain through his mist;
36:28 With which the clouds flow down, They drop on man in abundance.
36:29 But surely none can understand the burstings of the cloud, the crashing of his pavilion!
36:30 Lo! he hath spread out over it, his lightning, The bed of the sea, hath he covered.
36:31 For, by those things, he executeth judgment on peoples, He giveth food in abundance:
36:32 Upon both hands, he putteth a covering of lightning, and layeth command upon it against an assailant:
36:33 His rolling thunder telleth concerning him,The cattle, even, concerning him that is coming up.
