The Workers of Iniquity - Job 34

Job 34:1 Furthermore Elihu answered and said, 

Job 34:2 Hear  my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that  have knowledge. 

Job 34:3 For the ear trieth words, as the  mouth tasteth meat. 

Job 34:4 Let us choose to us judgment:  let us know among ourselves what is good. 

Job 34:5 For Job  hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my  judgment. 

Job 34:6 Should I lie against my right? my wound  is incurable without transgression. 

Job 34:7 What man is  like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water? 

Job 34:8  Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and  walketh with wicked men. 

Job 34:9 For he hath said, It  profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with  God. 

Job 34:10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of  understanding: far be it from God, that he should do  wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should  commit iniquity. 


Job 34:11 For the work of a man shall he  render unto him, and cause every man to find according to  his ways. 

Job 34:12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly,  neither will the Almighty pervert judgment. 

Job 34:13 Who  hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath  disposed the whole world? 

Job 34:14 If he set his heart upon  man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;  

Job 34:15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn  again unto dust. 

Job 34:16 If now thou hast understanding,  hear this: hearken to the voice of my words. 

Job 34:17 Shall  even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn  him that is most just? 

Job 34:18 Is it fit to say to a king,  Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly?   

Job 34:19 How much less to him that accepteth not the  persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the  poor? for they all are the work of his hands. 

Job 34:20 In a  moment shall they die, and the people shall be troubled at  midnight, and pass away: and the mighty shall be taken  away without hand. 

Job 34:21 For his eyes are upon the  ways of man, and he seeth all his goings. 

Job 34:22 There is  no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of  iniquity may hide themselves. 

Job 34:23 For he will not lay  upon man more than right; that he should enter into  judgment with God. 

Job 34:24 He shall break in pieces  mighty men without number, and set others in their stead.  

Job 34:25 Therefore he knoweth their works, and he  overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.  

Job 34:26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight  of others; 

Job 34:27 Because they turned back from him, and  would not consider any of his ways: 

Job 34:28 So that they  cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth  the cry of the afflicted. 

Job 34:29 When he giveth quietness,  who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face,  who then can behold him? whether it be done against a  nation, or against a man only: 

Job 34:30 That the hypocrite  reign not, lest the people be ensnared. 

Job 34:31 Surely it is  meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I  will not offend any more: 

Job 34:32 That which I see not  teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.  

Job 34:33 Should it be according to thy mind? he will  recompense it, whether thou refuse, or whether thou choose;  and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest. 

Job 34:34 Let  men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken  unto me. 

Job 34:35 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and  his words were without wisdom. 

Job 34:36 My desire is  that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers  for wicked men. 

Job 34:37 For he addeth rebellion unto his  sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his  words against God.  KJV
