Job 34:16-33 - God Is Fair

16 "But if you have understanding, hear this; Listen to the sound of my words. 17 "Shall one who hates justice rule? And will you condemn the righteous mighty One, 18 Who says to a king, 'Worthless one,' To nobles, 'Wicked ones'; 19 Who shows no partiality to princes Nor regards the rich above the poor, For they all are the work of His hands? 20 "In a moment they die, and at midnight People are shaken and pass away, And the mighty are taken away without a hand.

21 "For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, And He sees all his steps. 22 "There is no darkness or deep shadow Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 23 "For He does not need to consider a man further, That he should go before God in judgment. 24 "He breaks in pieces mighty men without inquiry, And sets others in their place. 25 "Therefore He knows their works, And He overthrows them in the night, And they are crushed. 26 "He strikes them like the wicked In a public place, 27 Because they turned aside from following Him, And had no regard for any of His ways; 28 So that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him, And that He might hear the cry of the afflicted-- 29 When He keeps quiet, who then can condemn? And when He hides His face, who then can behold Him, That is, in regard to both nation and man?-- 30 So that godless men would not rule Nor be snares of the people.

31 "For has anyone said to God, 'I have borne chastisement; I will not offend anymore; 32 Teach me what I do not see; If I have done iniquity, I will not do it again'? 33 "Shall He recompense on your terms, because you have rejected it? For you must choose, and not I; Therefore declare what you know.
