Job 34

Furthermore Elihu answered and said,
pronuntians itaque Heliu etiam haec locutus est
Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.
audite sapientes verba mea et eruditi auscultate me
For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.
auris enim verba probat et guttur escas gustu diiudicat
Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.
iudicium eligamus nobis et inter nos videamus quid sit melius
For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my judgment.
quia dixit Iob iustus sum et Deus subvertit iudicium meum
Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression.
in iudicando enim me mendacium est violenta sagitta mea absque ullo peccato
What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water?
quis est vir ut est Iob qui bibit subsannationem quasi aquam
Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men.
qui graditur cum operantibus iniquitatem et ambulat cum viris impiis
For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.
dixit enim non placebit vir Deo etiam si cucurrerit cum eo
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.
ideo viri cordati audite me absit a Deo impietas et ab Omnipotente iniquitas
For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.
opus enim hominis reddet ei et iuxta vias singulorum restituet
Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.
vere enim Deus non condemnabit frustra nec Omnipotens subvertet iudicium
Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath disposed the whole world?
quem constituit alium super terram aut quem posuit super orbem quem fabricatus est
If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;
si direxerit ad eum cor suum spiritum illius et flatum ad se trahet
All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust.
deficiet omnis caro simul et homo in cinerem revertetur
If now thou hast understanding, hear this: hearken to the voice of my words.
si habes ergo intellectum audi quod dicitur et ausculta vocem eloquii mei
Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?
numquid qui non amat iudicium sanare potest et quomodo tu eum qui iustus est in tantum condemnas
Is it fit to say to a king, Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly?
qui dicit regi apostata qui vocat duces impios
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.
qui non accipit personas principum nec cognovit tyrannum cum disceptaret contra pauperem opus enim manuum eius sunt universi
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.
subito morientur et in media nocte turbabuntur populi et pertransibunt et auferent violentum absque manu
For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings.
oculi enim eius super vias hominum et omnes gressus eorum considerat
There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
non sunt tenebrae et non est umbra mortis ut abscondantur ibi qui operantur iniquitatem
For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God.
neque enim ultra in hominis potestate est ut veniat ad Deum in iudicium
He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead.
conteret multos innumerabiles et stare faciet alios pro eis
Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.
novit enim opera eorum et idcirco inducet noctem et conterentur
He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others;
quasi impios percussit eos in loco videntium
Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways:
qui quasi de industria recesserunt ab eo et omnes vias eius intellegere noluerunt
So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.
ut pervenire facerent ad eum clamorem egeni et audiret vocem pauperum
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:
ipso enim concedente pacem quis est qui condemnet ex quo absconderit vultum quis est qui contempletur eum et super gentem et super omnes homines
That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.
qui regnare facit hominem hypocritam propter peccata populi
Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:
quia ergo ego locutus sum ad Deum te quoque non prohibeo
That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.
si erravi tu doce me si iniquitatem locutus sum ultra non addam
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.
numquid a te Deus expetit eam quia displicuit tibi tu enim coepisti loqui et non ego quod si quid nosti melius loquere
Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me.
viri intellegentes loquantur mihi et vir sapiens audiat me
Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.
Iob autem stulte locutus est et verba illius non sonant disciplinam
My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men.
pater mi probetur Iob usque ad finem ne desinas in hominibus iniquitatis
For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.
quia addit super peccata sua blasphemiam inter nos interim constringatur et tunc ad iudicium provocet sermonibus suis Deum
