Bible: Job 35:1-8

Elihu’s Third Speech 1 

35:1 Then Elihu answered:

35:2Do you think this to be 2  just:

when 3  you say, ‘My right before God.’ 4 

35:3 But you say, ‘What will it profit you,’ 5 

and, ‘What do I gain by not sinning?’ 6 

35:4 I 7  will reply to you, 8 

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
