The Source of Knowledge - Job 36

Job 36:1 Elihu also proceeded, and said, 

Job 36:2 Suffer me a  little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on  God’s behalf.

Job 36:3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar,  and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker. 

Job 36:4 For  truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in  knowledge is with thee. 

Job 36:5 Behold, God is mighty,  and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and  wisdom. 

Job 36:6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked:  but giveth right to the poor. 

Job 36:7 He withdraweth not his  eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the  throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are  exalted. 

Job 36:8 And if they be bound in fetters, and be  holden in cords of affliction; 

Job 36:9 Then he sheweth them  their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.  

Job 36:10 He openeth also their ear to discipline, and  commandeth that they return from iniquity. 

Job 36:11 If they  obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in  prosperity, and their years in pleasures. 

Job 36:12 But if they  obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die  without knowledge. 

Job 36:13 But the hypocrites in heart  heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them. 

Job 36:14  They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.  

Job 36:15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth  their ears in oppression. 

Job 36:16 Even so would he have  removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where  there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy  table should be full of fatness. 

Job 36:17 But thou hast  fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice  take hold on thee. 

Job 36:18 Because there is wrath,  beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a  great ransom cannot deliver thee. 

Job 36:19 Will he esteem  thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength.  

Job 36:20 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in  their place. 

Job 36:21 Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this  hast thou chosen rather than affliction. 

Job 36:22 Behold,  God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him? 

Job 36:23  Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast  wrought iniquity? 

Job 36:24 Remember that thou magnify his  work, which men behold. 

Job 36:25 Every man may see it;  man may behold it afar off. 

Job 36:26 Behold, God is  great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his  years be searched out. 

Job 36:27 For he maketh small the  drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour  thereof: 

Job 36:28 Which the clouds do drop and distil upon  man abundantly. 

Job 36:29 Also can any understand the  spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?  

Job 36:30 Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth  the bottom of the sea. 

Job 36:31 For by them judgeth he the  people; he giveth meat in abundance. 

Job 36:32 With clouds  he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by  the cloud that cometh betwixt. 

Job 36:33 The noise thereof  sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour. KJV
