Elihu Presents His Case against Job

33"Listen to my words, Job; pay attention to what I have to say.H199H347H8085H4405H238H1697 2Now that I have begun to speak, let me continue.H6605H6310H3956H1696H2441 3I speak with all sincerity; I speak the truth.H561H3476H3820H8193H4448H1847H1305 4For the Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.H7307H410H6213H5397H7706H2421 5Answer me, if you can; make your case and take your stand.H3201H7725H6186H6440H3320 6Look, you and I both belong to God. I, too, was formed from clay.H6310H410H7169H2563 7So you don't need to be afraid of me. I won't come down hard on you.H367H1204H405H3513 8"You have spoken in my hearing, and I have heard your very words.H559H241H8085H6963H4405 9You said, 'I am pure; I am without sin; I am innocent; I have no guilt.H2134H6588H2643H5771 10God is picking a quarrel with me, and he considers me his enemy.H4672H8569H2803H341 11He puts my feet in the stocks and watches my every move.'H7760H7272H5465H8104H734 12"But you are wrong, and I will show you why. For God is greater than any human being.H6663H6030H433H7235H582 13So why are you bringing a charge against him? Why say he does not respond to people's complaints?H7378H6030H1697 14For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it.H410H1696H259H8147H7789 15He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds.H2472H2384H3915H8639H5307H582H8572H4904 16He whispers in their ears and terrifies them with warnings.H1540H241H582H2856H4561 17He makes them turn from doing wrong; he keeps them from pride.H5493H120H4639H3680H1466H1397 18He protects them from the grave, from crossing over the river of death.H2820H5315H7845H2416H5674H7973 19"Or God disciplines people with pain on their sickbeds, with ceaseless aching in their bones.H3198H4341H4904H7230H7379H6106H386 20They lose their appetite for even the most delicious food.H2416H2092H3899H5315H8378H3978 21Their flesh wastes away, and their bones stick out.H1320H3615H7210H6106H7200H8192H8205 22They are at death's door; the angels of death wait for them.H5315H7126H7845H2416H4191 23"But if an angel from heaven appears—a special messenger to intercede for a person and declare that he is upright -H3426H4397H3887H259H505H5046H120H3476 24he will be gracious and say,'Rescue him from the grave, for I have found a ransom for his life.'H2603H559H6308H3381H7845H4672H3724 25Then his body will become as healthy as a child's, firm and youthful again.H1320H7375H5290H7725H3117H5934 26When he prays to God, he will be accepted. And God will receive him with joy and restore him to good standing.H6279H433H7521H7200H6440H8643H7725H582H6666 27He will declare to his friends,'I sinned and twisted the truth, but it was not worth it.H7789H582H559H2398H5753H3477H7737 28God rescued me from the grave, and now my life is filled with light.'H6299H5315H5674H7845H2416H7200H216 29"Yes, God does these things again and again for people.H6466H410H6471H7969H1397 30He rescues them from the grave so they may enjoy the light of life.H7725H5315H7845H215H216H2416 31Mark this well, Job. Listen to me, for I have more to say.H7181H347H8085H2790H1696 32But if you have anything to say, go ahead. Speak, for I am anxious to see you justified.H3426H4405H7725H1696H2654H6663 33But if not, then listen to me. Keep silent and I will teach you wisdom!"H8085H2790H502H2451
