1Then Elihu proceeded and said: 2Do you think it right to say, “I am just rather than God”? w Jb 32, 2 . 3To say, “What does it profit me; what advantage have I more than if I had sinned?” x Jb 34, 9 . 4I have words for a reply to you* and your three companions as well. 5Look up to the skies and behold; regard the heavens high above you. 6If you sin, what injury do you do to God? Even if your offenses are many, how do you hurt him? 7If you are righteous, what do you give him, or what does he receive from your hand? y Jb 22, 3; 41, 2; Lk 17, 10; Rom 11, 35 . 8Your wickedness can affect only a man like yourself; and your justice only a fellow human being. 9In great oppression men cry out; they call for help because of the power of the mighty, 10Saying, “Where is God, my Maker, who has given visions in the night, 11Taught us rather than the beasts of the earth, and made us wise rather than the birds of the heavens?” 12Though thus they cry out, he answers not against the pride of the wicked. 13But it is idle to say God does not hear or that the Almighty does not take notice. 14Even though you say that you see him not,* the case is before him; with trembling should you wait upon him. 15But now that you have done otherwise, God's anger punishes, nor does he show concern that a man will die. 16Yet Job to no purpose opens his mouth, and without knowledge multiplies words. z Jb 34, 35; 38, 2; 42, 3 .
