King James 2000
1Elihu spoke moreover, and said,
2Think you this to be right, that you said, My righteousness is more than God's?
3For you said, What advantage will it be unto you? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
4I will answer you, and your companions with you.
5Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than you.
6If you sin, what do you accomplish against him? or if your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do unto him?
7If you are righteous, what give you to him? or what receives he of your hand?
8Your wickedness may hurt a man as you are; and your righteousness may profit the son of man.
9Because of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out because of the arm of the mighty.
10But none says, Where is God my maker, who gives songs in the night;
11Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, and makes us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
12There they cry, but none gives answer, because of the pride of evil men.
13Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
14Although you say you shall not see him, yet justice is before him; therefore you must trust in him.
15But now, because it is not so, he has visited in his anger; yet he knows it not in a great extreme:
16Therefore does Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplies words without knowledge.
