1 And Elius resumed and said, 2 What is this that thou thinkest to be according to right? who art thou that thou hast said, I am righteous before the Lord? 3 I will answer thee, and thy three friends. 4 Look up to the sky and see; and consider the clouds, how high [they are] above thee. 5 If thou hast sinned, what wilt thou do? 6 and if too thou hast transgressed much, what canst thou perform? 7 And suppose thou art righteous, what wilt thou give him? or what shall he receive of thy hand? 8 Thy ungodliness [may affect] a man who is like to thee; or thy righteousness a son of man. 9 They that are oppressed of a multitude will be ready to cry out; they will call for help because of the arm of many. 10 But none said, Where is God that made me, who appoints the night-watches; 11 who makes me to differ from the four-footed beasts of the earth, and from the birds of the sky? 12 There they shall cry, and none shall hearken, even because of the insolence of wicked men. 13 For the Lord desires not to look on error, for he is the Almighty One. 14 He beholds them that perform lawless deeds, and he will save me: and do thou plead before him, if thou canst praise him, as it is [possible] even now. 15 For he is not [now] regarding his wrath, nor has he noticed severely any trespass. 16 Yet Job vainly opens his mouth, in ignorance he multiplies words. ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ ᾿Ελιοὺς λέγει· 2 τί τοῦτο ἡγήσω ἐν κρίσει; σὺ τίς εἶ ὅτι εἶπας· δίκαιός εἰμι ἔναντι Κυρίου; 3 ἐγώ σοι δώσω ἀπόκρισιν καὶ τοῖς τρισὶ φίλοις σου. 4 ἀνάβλεψον εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἰδέ, κατάμαθε δὲ νέφη ὡς ὑψηλὰ ἀπὸ σοῦ. 5 εἰ ἥμαρτες, τί πράξεις; 6 εἰ δὲ καὶ πολλὰ ἠνόμησας, τί δύνασαι ποιῆσαι; 7 ἐπεὶ δὲ οὖν δικαιος εἶ, τί δώσεις αὐτῷ; ἢ τί ἐκ χειρός σου λήψεται; 8 ἀνδρὶ τῷ ὁμοίῳ σου ἡ ἀσέβειά σου, καὶ υἱῷ ἀνθρώπου ἡ δικαιοσύνη σου. 9 ἀπὸ πλήθους συκοφαντούμενοι κεκράξονται, βοήσονται ἀπὸ βραχίονος πολλῶν. 10 καὶ οὐκ εἶπε· ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ Θεὸς ὁ ποιήσας με, ὁ κατατάσσων φυλακὰς νυκτερινάς, 11 ὁ διορίζων με ἀπὸ τετραπόδων γῆς, ἀπὸ δὲ πετεινῶν οὐρανοῦ; 12 ἐκεῖ κεκράξονται, καὶ οὐ μὴ εἰσακούσῃ καὶ ἀπὸ ὕβρεως πονηρῶν. 13 ἄτοπα γὰρ οὐ βούλεται ἰδεῖν ὁ Κύριος, αὐτὸς γὰρ ὁ Παντοκράτωρ 14 ὁρατής ἐστι τῶν συντελούντων τὰ ἄνομα καὶ σώσει με. κρίθητι δὲ ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ, εἰ δύνασαι αὐτὸν αἰνέσαι, ὥς ἐστι. 15 καὶ νῦν ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἐπισκεπτόμενος ὀργὴν αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔγνω παράπτωμά τι σφόδρα· 16 καὶ ᾿Ιὼβ ματαίως ἀνοίγει τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ, ἐν ἀγνωσίᾳ ῥήματα βαρύνει.
