1Elihu proceeded further and said: 2Wait yet a little and I will instruct you, for there are still words to be said on God's behalf. 3I will bring my knowledge from afar, and to my Maker I will accord the right. 4For indeed, my theme cannot fail me: the one perfect in knowledge I set before you. 5Behold, God rejects the obstinate in heart;* he preserves not the life of the wicked, 6He withholds not the just man's rights, but grants vindication to the oppressed a Ps 72, 4. 12f . 7And with kings upon thrones he sets them, exalted forever. b Ps 113, 7f . 8Or if they are bound with fetters and held fast by bonds of affliction, 9Then he makes known to them what they have done and their sins of boastful pride. 10He opens their ears to correction and exhorts them to turn back from evil. 11If they obey and serve him, they spend their days in prosperity, their years in happiness. 12But if they obey not, they perish; they die for lack of knowledge.* 13The impious in heart lay up anger for themselves; they cry not for help when he enchains them; 14Therefore they expire in youth, and perish among the reprobate.* 15But he saves the unfortunate through their affliction, and instructs them through distress. 16‐20…………………………* 21Take heed, turn not to evil; for you have preferred carousal to affliction. 22Behold, God is sublime in his power. What teacher is there like him? 23Who prescribes for him his conduct, or who can say, “You have done wrong”? c Jb 34, 10; Is 40, 13 . 24Remember, you should extol his work, which men have praised in song. 25All men contemplate it; man beholds it from afar. 26Lo, God is great beyond our knowledge; the number of his years is past searching out. 27He holds in check the waterdrops that filter in rain through his mists, 28Till the skies run with them and the showers rain down on mankind. 31For by these* he nourishes the nations, and gives them food in abundance. 29.30Lo! he spreads the clouds in layers as the carpeting of his tent.* 32In his hands he holds the lightning, and he commands it to strike the mark. 33His thunder speaks for him and incites the fury of the storm.
