Job 36
New Living Translation
36Elihu continued speaking.H453H3254H559 2"Let me go on, and I will show you the truth. For I have not finished defending God!H3803H2191H2331H4405H433 3I will present profound arguments for the righteousness of my Creator.H5375H1843H7350H5414H6664H6466 4I am telling you nothing but the truth, for I am a man of great knowledge.H551H4405H8267H8549H1844 5"God is mighty, but he does not despise anyone! He is mighty in both power and understanding.H410H3524H3988H3524H3581H3820 6He does not let the wicked live but gives justice to the afflicted.H2421H7563H5414H4941H6041 7He never takes his eyes off the innocent, but he sets them on thrones with kings and exalts them forever.H1639H5869H6662H4428H3678H3427H5331H1361 8If they are bound in chains and caught up in a web of trouble,H631H2131H3920H2256H6040 9he shows them the reason. He shows them their sins of pride.H5046H6467H6588H1396 10He gets their attention and commands that they turn from evil.H1540H241H4148H559H7725H205 11"If they listen and obey God, they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant.H8085H5647H3615H3117H2896H8141H5273 12But if they refuse to listen to him, they will be killed by the sword and die from lack of understanding.H8085H5674H7973H1478H1847 13For the godless are full of resentment. Even when he punishes them, they refuse to cry out to him for help.H2611H3820H7760H639H7768H631 14They die when they are young, after wasting their lives in immoral living.H5315H4191H5290H2416H6945 15But by means of their suffering, he rescues those who suffer. For he gets their attention through adversity.H2502H6041H6040H1540H241H3906 16"God is leading you away from danger, Job, to a place free from distress. He is setting your table with the best food.H5496H6310H6862H7338H8478H4164H5183H7979H4390H1880 17But you are obsessed with whether the godless will be judged. Don't worry, judgment and justice will be upheld.H4390H1779H7563H1779H4941H8551 18But watch out, or you may be seduced by wealth. Don't let yourself be bribed into sin.H2534H5496H5607H7230H3724H5186 19Could all your wealth or all your mighty efforts keep you from distress?H6186H7769H1222H3981H3581 20Do not long for the cover of night, for that is when people will be destroyed.H7602H3915H5971H5927 21Be on guard! Turn back from evil, for God sent this suffering to keep you from a life of evil.H8104H6437H205H977H6040

Elihu Reminds Job of God’s Power

22"Look, God is all-powerful. Who is a teacher like him?H410H7682H3581H3384 23No one can tell him what to do, or say to him, 'You have done wrong.'H6485H1870H559H6466H5766 24Instead, glorify his mighty works, singing songs of praise.H2142H7679H6467H582H7891 25Everyone has seen these things, though only from a distance.H120H2372H582H5027H7350 26"Look, God is greater than we can understand. His years cannot be counted.H410H7689H3045H4557H8141H2714 27He draws up the water vapor and then distills it into rain.H1639H5198H4325H2212H4306H108 28The rain pours down from the clouds, and everyone benefits.H7834H5140H7491H120H7227 29Who can understand the spreading of the clouds and the thunder that rolls forth from heaven?H995H4666H5645H8663H5521 30See how he spreads the lightning around him and how it lights up the depths of the sea.H6566H216H3680H8328H3220 31By these mighty acts he nourishes the people, giving them food in abundance.H1777H5971H5414H400H4342 32He fills his hands with lightning bolts and hurls each at its target.H3709H3680H216H6680H6293 33The thunder announces his presence; the storm announces his indignant anger.H7452H5046H4735H5927
