JOB 35Elihu Sharply Reproves Job 35:1 Then Elihu continued and said, 2 “Do you think this is according to justice? Do you say, ‘My righteousness is more than God’s’? 3 “For you say, ‘What advantage will it be to You? What profit will I have, more than if I had sinned?’ 4 “I will answer you, And your friends with you. 5 “Look at the heavens and see; And behold the clouds--they are higher than you. 6 “If you have sinned, what do you accomplish against Him? And if your transgressions are many, what do you do to Him? 7 “If you are righteous, what do you give to Him, Or what does He receive from your hand? 8 “Your wickedness is for a man like yourself, And your righteousness is for a son of man.
