Elihu Reminds Job of God’s Justice

35Then Elihu said.H453H6030H559 2"Do you think it is right for you to claim, 'I am righteous before God'?H2803H4941H559H6664H410 3For you also ask, 'What's in it for me? What's the use of living a righteous life?'H559H5532H3276H2403 4"I will answer you and all your friends, too.H7725H4405H7453 5Look up into the sky, and see the clouds high above you.H5027H8064H7200H7789H7834H1361 6If you sin, how does that affect God? Even if you sin again and again, what effect will it have on him?H2398H6466H6588H7231H6213 7If you are good, is this some great gift to him? What could you possibly give him?H6663H5414H3947H3027 8No, your sins affect only people like yourself, and your good deeds also affect only humans.H7562H376H6666H1121H120 9"People cry out when they are oppressed. They groan beneath the power of the mighty.H7230H6217H2199H7768H2220H7227 10Yet they don't ask, 'Where is God my Creator, the one who gives songs in the night?H559H433H6213H5414H2158H3915 11Where is the one who makes us smarter than the animals and wiser than the birds of the sky?'H502H929H776H2449H5775H8064 12And when they cry out, God does not answer because of their pride.H6817H6030H6440H1347H7451 13But it is wrong to say God doesn't listen, to say the Almighty isn't concerned.H410H8085H7723H7706H7789 14You say you can't see him, but he will bring justice if you will only wait.H637H559H7789H1779H6440H2342 15You say he does not respond to sinners with anger and is not greatly concerned about wickedness.H6485H639H3045H3966H6580 16But you are talking nonsense, Job. You have spoken like a fool."H347H6475H6310H1892H3527H4405H1097H1847
