The Book of Job Chapter 34 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 34. Eli Hugh further answered and said Hear my words you wise men Give ear to me you who have knowledge For the ear tests words as the palate Tastes food Let us choose Justice for ourselves Let us know among ourselves what is good For job has said I am righteous but God Has taken away my Justice Should I lie concerning my right My wound is incurable though I am Without transgression What man is like job Who drinks scorn like water Who goes in company with the workers of Iniquity and walks with wicked men For he has said it profits a man nothing That he should delight in God Therefore listen to me you men of Understanding Far be it from God to do wickedness and From the almighty to commit iniquity For he repays man according to his work And makes man to find a reward according To his way Surely God will never do wickedly nor Will the almighty pervert Justice Who gave him charge over the Earth or Who appointed him over the whole world If he should set his heart on it if he Should gather to himself his spirit and His breath All Flesh would perish together and man

Would return to dust If you have understanding hear this Listen to the sound of my words Should one who hates Justice govern Will you condemn him who is most just Is it fitting to say to a king you are Worthless Anton Nobles you are wicked Yet he is not partial to princes Nor does he regard the rich more than The poor For they are all the work of his hands In a moment they die in the middle of The night The people are shaken and pass away The mighty are taken away without a hand For his eyes are on the ways of man and He sees all his steps There is no Darkness nor shadow of death Where the workers of iniquity May hide Themselves For he need not further consider a man That he should go before God in judgment He breaks in pieces Mighty Men Without Inquiry and sets others in their place Therefore he knows their works He overthrows them in the night and they Are crushed He strikes them as wicked men in the Open sight of others because they turned Back from him and would not consider any Of his ways So that they caused the Cry of the poor To come to him For he hears the Cry Of The Afflicted

When he gives quietness Who then can make trouble And when he hides his face Who then can see him Whether it is against a nation or a man Alone That the hypocrite should not reign lest The people being snared For has anyone said to God I have borne chastening I will offend no More Teach me what I do not see If I have done iniquity I will do no More Should he repay it according to your Terms just because you disavow it You must choose and not I Therefore speak what you know Men of understanding say to me wise men Who listen to me Job speaks without knowledge His words are without wisdom Oh that job were tried to the utmost Because his answers are like those of Wicked men For he adds Rebellion to his sin He claps his hands Among Us and Multiplies his words against God
