35:1  Elihu spake moreover, and said,
35:2  Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God's?
35:3  For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
35:4  I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee.
35:5  Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou.
35:6  If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?
35:7  If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand?
35:8  Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.
35:9  By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.
35:10  But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;
35:11  Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
35:12  There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.
35:13  Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
35:14  Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him.
35:15  But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity:
35:16  Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.
