1 And Elius continued, and said, 2 Hear me, ye wise men; hearken, ye that have knowledge. 3 For the ear tries words, and the mouth tastes meat. 4 Let us choose judgment to ourselves: let us know among ourselves what is right. 5 For Job has said, I am righteous: the Lord has removed my judgment. 6 And he has erred in my judgment: my wound is severe without unrighteousness [of mine]. 7 What man is as Job, drinking scorning like water? 8 [saying], I have not sinned, nor committed ungodliness, nor had fellowship with workers of iniquity, to go with the ungodly. 9 For thou shouldest not say, There shall be no visitation of a man, whereas [there is] a visitation on him from the Lord. 10 Wherefore hear me, ye that are wise in heart: far be it from me to sin before the Lord, and to pervert righteousness before the Almighty. 11 Yea, he renders to a man accordingly as each of them does, and in a man’s path he will find him. 12 And thinkest thou that the Lord will do wrong, or will the Almighty who made the earth wrest judgment? 13 And who is he that made [the whole world] under heaven, and all things therein? 14 For if he would confine, and restrain his spirit with himself; 15 all flesh would die together, and every mortal would return to the earth, whence also he was formed. 16 Take heed lest he rebuke [thee]: hear this, hearken to the voice of words. 17 Behold then the one that hates iniquities, and that destroys the wicked, who is for ever just. 18 [He is] ungodly that says to a king, Thou art a transgressor, [that says] to princes, O most ungodly one. 19 [Such a one] as would not reverence the face of an honourable man, neither knows how to give honour to the great, so as that their persons should be respected. 20 But it shall turn out vanity to them, to cry and beseech a man; for they dealt unlawfully, the poor being turned aside [from their right]. 21 For he surveys the works of men, and nothing of what they do has escaped him. 22 Neither shall there be a place for the workers of iniquity to hide themselves. 23 For he will not lay upon a man more [than right]. 24 For the Lord looks down upon all men, who comprehends unsearchable things, glorious also and excellent things without number. 25 Who discovers their works, and will bring night about [upon them], and they shall be brought low. 26 And he quite destroys the ungodly, for they are seen before him. 27 Because they turned aside from the law of God, and did not regard his ordinances, 28 so as to bring before him the cry of the needy; for he will hear the cry of the poor. 29 And he will give quiet, and who will condemn? and he will hide his face, and who shall see him? whether [it be done] against a nation, or against a man also: 30 causing a hypocrite to be king, because of the waywardness of the people. 31 For [there is] one that says to the Mighty One, I have received [blessings]; I will not take a pledge: 32 I will see apart from myself: do thou shew me if I have done unrighteousness; I will not do [so] any more. 33 Will he take vengeance for it on thee, whereas thou wilt put [it] far [from thee]? for thou shalt choose, and not I; and what thou knowest, speak thou. 34 Because the wise in heart shall say this, and a wise man listens to my word. 35 But Job has not spoken with understanding, his words are not [uttered] with knowledge. 36 Howbeit do thou learn, Job: no longer make answer as the foolish: 37 that we add not to our sins: for iniquity will be reckoned against us, if [we] speak many words before the Lord. ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ ᾿Ελιοὺς λέγει· 2 ἀκούσατέ μου, σοφοί· ἐπιστάμενοι, ἐνωτίζεσθε τὸ καλόν· 3 ὅτι οὖς λόγους δοκιμάζει, καὶ λάρυγξ γεύεται βρῶσιν. 4 κρίσιν ἑλώμεθα ἑαυτοῖς, γνῶμεν ἀνὰ μέσον ἑαυτῶν ὅ,τι καλόν. 5 ὅτι εἴρηκεν ᾿Ιώβ· δίκαιός εἰμι, ὁ Κύριος ἀπήλλαξέ μου τὸ κρίμα, 6 ἐψεύσατο δὲ τῷ κρίματί μου, βίαιον τὸ βέλος μου ἄνευ ἀδικίας. 7 τίς ἀνὴρ ὥσπερ ᾿Ιώβ, πίνων μυκτηρισμὸν ὥσπερ ὕδωρ, 8 οὐχ ἁμαρτὼν οὐδὲ ἀσεβήσας ἢ ὁδοῦ κοινωνήσας μετὰ ποιούντων τὰ ἄνομα τοῦ πορευθῆναι μετὰ ἀσεβῶν; 9 μὴ γὰρ εἴπῃς, ὅτι οὐκ ἔσται ἐπισκοπὴ ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἐπισκοπὴ αὐτῷ παρὰ Κυρίου. 10 διό, συνετοὶ καρδίας ἀκούσατέ μου· μή μοι εἴη ἔναντι Κυρίου ἀσεβῆσαι καὶ ἔναντι Παντοκράτορος ταράξαι τὸ δίκαιον· 11 ἀλλὰ ἀποδιδοῖ ἀνθρώπῳ καθὰ ποιεῖ ἕκαστος αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐν τρίβῳ ἀνδρὸς εὑρήσει αὐτόν. 12 οἴει δὲ τὸν Κύριον ἄτοπα ποιήσειν; ἢ ὁ Παντοκράτωρ ταράξει κρίσιν, ὃς ἐποίησε τὴν γῆν; 13 τίς δέ ἐστιν ὁ ποιῶν τὴν ὑπ᾿ οὐρανὸν καὶ τὰ ἐνόντα πάντα; 14 εἰ γὰρ βούλοιτο συνέχειν καὶ τὸ πνεῦμα παρ᾿ αὐτῷ κατασχεῖν, 15 τελευτήσει πᾶσα σάρξ ὁμοθυμαδόν, πᾶς δὲ βροτὸς εἰς γῆν ἀπελεύσεται, ὅθεν καὶ ἐπλάσθη. 16 εἰ δὲ μὴ νουθετῇ, ἄκουε ταῦτα, ἐνωτίζου φωνὴν ῥημάτων. 17 ἰδὲ σὺ τὸν μισοῦντα ἄνομα καὶ τὸν ὀλλύντα τοὺς πονηροὺς ὄντα αἰώνιον δίκαιον. 18 ἀσεβὴς ὁ λέγων βασιλεῖ· παρανομεῖς, ἀσεβέστατε, τοῖς ἄρχουσιν· 19 ὃς οὐκ ἐπῃσχύνθη πρόσωπον ἐντίμου, οὐδὲ οἶδε τιμὴν θέσθαι ἁδροῖς θαυμασθῆναι πρόσωπα αὐτῶν. 20 κενὰ δὲ αὐτοῖς ἀποβήσεται τὸ κεκραγέναι καὶ δεῖσθαι ἀνδρός· ἐχρήσαντο γὰρ παρανόμως ἐκκλινομένων ἀδυνάτων. 21 αὐτὸς γὰρ ὁρατής ἐστιν ἔργων ἀνθρώπων, λέληθε δὲ αὐτὸν οὐδὲν ὧν πράσσουσιν, 22 οὐδὲ ἔσται τόπος τοῦ κρυβῆναι τοὺς ποιοῦντας τὰ ἄνομα· 23 ὅτι οὐκ ἀπ᾿ ἄνδρα θήσει ἔτι· 24 ὁ γὰρ Κύριος πάντας ἐφορᾷ ὁ καταλαμβάνων ἀνεξιχνίαστα, ἔνδοξά τε καὶ ἐξαίσια, ὧν οὐκ ἔστιν ἀριθμός· 25 ὁ γνωρίζων αὐτῶν τὰ ἔργα καὶ στρέψει νύκτα καὶ ταπεινωθήσονται. 26 ἔσβεσε δὲ ἀσεβεῖς, ὁρατοὶ δὲ ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ, 27 ὅτι ἐξέκλιναν ἐκ νόμου Θεοῦ, δικαιώματα δὲ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐπέγνωσαν 28 τοῦ ἐπαγαγεῖν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν κραυγὴν πενήτων, καὶ κραυγὴν πτωχῶν εἰσακούσεται. 29 καὶ αὐτὸς ἡσυχίαν παρέξει, καὶ τίς καταδικάσεται; καὶ κρύψει πρόσωπον, καὶ τίς ὄψεται αὐτόν; καὶ κατὰ ἔθνους καὶ κατὰ ἀνθρώπου ὁμοῦ 30 βασιλεύων ἄνθρωπον ὑποκριτὴν ἀπὸ δυσκολίας λαοῦ. 31 ὅτι πρὸς τὸν ἰσχυρὸν ὁ λέγων· εἴληφα, οὐκ ἐνεχυράσω· 32 ἄνευ ἐμαυτοῦ ὄψομαι, σὺ δεῖξόν μοι, εἰ ἀδικίαν εἰργασάμην, οὐ μὴ προσθήσω. 33 μὴ παρὰ σοῦ ἀποτίσει αὐτήν; ὅτι ἀπώσῃ, ὅτι σὺ ἐκλέξῃ, καὶ οὐκ ἐγώ· καὶ τί ἔγνως, λάλησον. 34 διὸ συνετοὶ καρδίας ἐροῦσι ταῦτα, ἀνὴρ δὲ σοφὸς ἀκήκοέ μου τὸ ρῆμα. 35 ᾿Ιὼβ δὲ οὐκ ἐν συνέσει ἐλάλησε, τὰ ρήματα αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐν ἐπιστήμῃ. 36 οὐ μὴν δὲ ἀλλὰ μάθε, ᾿Ιώβ, μὴ δῷς ἔτι ἀνταπόκρισιν, ὥσπερ οἱ ἄφρονες, 37 ἵνα μὴ προσθῶμεν ἐφ᾿ ἁμαρτίαις ἡμῶν, ἀνομία δὲ ἐφ᾿ ἡμῖν λογισθήσεται, πολλὰ λαλούντων ρήματα ἐναντίον τοῦ Κυρίου.
