Can someone who hates justice govern? Will you condemn the just and mighty One?
King James Bible
Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?
American Standard Version
Shall even one that hateth justice govern? And wilt thou condemn him that is righteous and mighty?-
Young's Literal Translation
Yea, doth one hating justice govern? Or the Most Just dost thou condemn?
Job 34:17 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Shall - he that hateth right govern? - Or, Shall he who hateth judgment, lie under obligation? It is preposterous to suppose that he who lives by no rule, should impose rules upon others. God, who is the fountain of all justice and righteousness, binds man by his laws; and wilt thou, therefore, pretend to condemn him who is the sum of righteousness?
