Multitude of Oppressions - Job 35

Job 35:1 Elihu spake moreover, and said, 

Job 35:2 Thinkest  thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is  more than God’s? 

Job 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? 

Job 35:4 I will answer thee, and thy  companions with thee. 

Job 35:5 Look unto the heavens, and  see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou.  

Job 35:6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if  thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?  

Job 35:7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what  receiveth he of thine hand? 

Job 35:8 Thy wickedness may  hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit  the son of man. 


Job 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. 

Job 35:10 But none saith,  Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;  

Job 35:11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth,  and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? 

Job 35:12  There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride  of evil men. 

Job 35:13 Surely God will not hear vanity,  neither will the Almighty regard it. 

Job 35:14 Although thou  sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before  him; therefore trust thou in him. 

Job 35:15 But now, because  it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth  it not in great extremity: 

Job 35:16 Therefore doth Job open  his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.    KJV
