Bible: Job 35:1-8
Elihu’s Third Speech 1
35:1 Then Elihu answered:
35:2 “Do you think this to be 2 just:
35:3 But you say, ‘What will it profit you,’ 5
and, ‘What do I gain by not sinning?’ 6
and to your friends with you.
35:5 Gaze at the heavens and see;
consider the clouds, which are higher than you! 9
35:6 If you sin, how does it affect God? 10
If your transgressions are many,
what does it do to him? 11
35:7 If you are righteous, what do you give to God,
or what does he receive from your hand?
35:8 Your wickedness affects only 12 a person like yourself,
and your righteousness only other people. 13
