Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Elihu sheweth how God is iust in his wayes. 16 How Iobs sinnes hinder Gods blessings. 24 Gods works are to be magnified.
1Elihu also proceeded, and said,
2Suffer mee a little, and I will shewe thee, that I haue yet to speake on Gods behalfe.2
3I will fetch my knowledge from afarre, and will ascribe righteousnesse to my Maker.
4For truely my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge, is with thee.
5Behold, God is mightie, and despiseth not any: he is mightie in strength and wisedome.5
The causes of Gods punishments.
6He preserueth not the life of the wicked: but giueth right to the poore.6
7Hee withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne, yea he doth establish them for euer, and they are exalted.7
8And if they bee bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction:
9Then hee sheweth them their worke, and their transgressions, that they haue exceeded.
10He openeth also their eare to discipline, and commandeth that they returne from iniquitie.
11If they obey and serue him, they shall spend their dayes in prosperitie, and their yeeres in pleasures.11
12But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.12
13But the hypocrites in heart heape vp wrath: they crie not when he bindeth them.
14They die in youth, and their life is among the vncleane.14
15He deliuereth the poore in his affliction, and openeth their eares in oppression.15
16Euen so would he haue remooued thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitnesse, and that which should be set on thy table, should be full of fatnesse.16
17But thou hast fulfilled the iudgement of the wicked: iudgement and iustice take hold on thee.17
18Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransome cannot deliuer thee.18
19Will he esteeme thy riches? no not gold, nor all the forces of strength.
20Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.
21Take heed, regard not iniquitie: for this hast thou chosen rather then affliction.
22Beholde, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?
23Who hath inioyned him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquitie?
24Remember that thou magnifie his worke, which men behold.
25Euery man may see it, man may behold it afarre off.
26Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his yeeres be searched out.
The power of God.
27For hee maketh small the drops of water: they powre downe raine according to the vapour thereof:
28Which the clouds doe drop, and distill vpon man aboundantly.
29Also can any vnderstand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?
30Behold, he spreadeth his light vpon it, and couereth the bottome of the sea.30
31For by them iudgeth he the people, he giueth meate in abundance.
32With clouds he couereth the light, and commaundeth it not to shine, by the cloud that commeth betwixt.
33The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattel also concerning the Uapour.33
