for I still have something to say on God’s behalf.
and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
One who is perfect in knowledge is with you.
He is mighty in strength of understanding.
but gives to the afflicted their right.
but with kings on the throne he sets them forever,
and they are exalted.
and are taken in the cords of afflictions,
that they have behaved themselves proudly.
and commands that they return from iniquity.
they will spend their days in prosperity
and their years in pleasures.
they will perish by the sword;
they will die without knowledge.
They do not cry out for help when he binds them.
Their life perishes among the unclean.
and opens their ear in oppression.
into a wide place where there is no restriction.
That which is set on your table would be full of fatness.
Judgment and justice take hold of you.
neither let the great size of a bribe turn you aside.
or all the might of your strength?
when people are cut off in their place.
for you have chosen this rather than affliction.
Who is a teacher like him?
Or who can say, ‘You have committed unrighteousness?’
whereof men have sung.
Man sees it afar off.
The number of his years is unsearchable.
that distill in rain from his vapor,
and that drop on man abundantly.
and the thunderings of his pavilion?
He covers the bottom of the sea.
He gives food in abundance.
and commands it to strike the mark.
and the livestock also concerning the storm that comes up.”
