1Elihu spake moreouer, and said,
2Thinkest thou this right, that thou hast said, I am more righteous then God?
3For thou hast said, What profiteth it thee and what auaileth it me, to purge me from my sinne?
4Therefore will I answere thee, and thy companions with thee.
5Looke vnto the heauen, and see and behold the cloudes which are hyer then thou.
6If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him, yea, when thy sinnes be many, what doest thou vnto him?
7If thou be righteous, what giuest thou vnto him? or what receiueth he at thine hand?
8Thy wickednesse may hurt a man as thou art: and thy righteousnes may profite ye sonne of man.
9They cause many that are oppressed, to crye, which crye out for ye violence of the mightie.
10But none saieth, Where is God that made me, which giueth songs in the nyght?
11Which teacheth vs more then the beastes of the earth, and giueth vs more wisdome then the foules of the heauen.
12Then they crye because of the violence of the wicked, but he answereth not.
13Surely God will not heare vanitie, neyther will the Almightie regard it.
14Although thou sayest to God, Thou wilt not regard it, yet iudgement is before him: trust thou in him.
15But nowe because his anger hath not visited, nor called to count the euill with great extremitie,
16Therfore Iob openeth his mouth in vaine, and multiplieth wordes without knowledge.
