|1 And Elius further continued, and said, 2 Wait for me yet a little while, that I may teach thee: for there is yet speech in me. 3 Having fetched my knowledge from afar, and according to my works, 4 I will speak just things truly, and thou shalt not unjustly receive unjust words. 5 But know that the Lord will not cast off an innocent man: being mighty in strength of wisdom, 6 he will not by any means save alive the ungodly: and he will grant the judgment of the poor. 7 He will not turn away his eyes from the righteous, but [they shall be] with kings on the throne: and he will establish them in triumph, and they shall be exalted. 8 But they that are bound in fetters shall be holden in cords of poverty. 9 And he shall recount to them their works, and their transgressions, for such will act with violence. 10 But he will hearken to the righteous: and he has said that they shall turn from unrighteousness. 11 If they should hear and serve [him], they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in honour. 12 But he preserves not the ungodly; because they are not willing to know the Lord, and because when reproved they were disobedient. 13 And the hypocrites in heart will array wrath [against themselves]; they will not cry, because he has bound them. 14 Therefore let their soul die in youth, and their life be wounded by messengers [of death]. 15 Because they afflicted the weak and helpless: and he will vindicate the judgment of the meek. 16 And he has also enticed thee out of the mouth of the enemy: [there is] a deep gulf [and] a rushing stream beneath it, and thy table came down full of fatness. 17 Judgment shall not fail from the righteous; 18 but there shall be wrath upon the ungodly, by reason of the ungodliness of the bribes which they received for iniquities. 19 Let not [thy] mind willingly turn thee aside from the petition of the feeble that are in distress. 20 And draw not forth all the mighty [men] by night, so that the people should go up instead of them. 21 But take heed lest thou do that which is wrong: for of this thou hast made choice because of poverty. 22 Behold, the Mighty One shall prevail by his strength: for who is powerful as he is? 23 And who is he that examines his works? or who can say, he has wrought injustice? 24 Remember that his works are great [beyond] those which men have attempted. 25 Every man has seen in himself, how many mortals are wounded. 26 Behold, the Mighty One is great, and we shall not know [him]: the number of his years is even infinite. 27 And the drops of rain are numbered by him, and shall be poured out in rain to form a cloud. 28 The ancient [heavens] shall flow, and the clouds overshadow innumerable mortals: 28α he has fixed a time to cattle, and they know the order of rest. 28β [Yet] by all these things thy understanding is not astonished, neither is thy mind disturbed in [thy] body. 29 And though one should understand the outspreadings of the clouds, [or] the measure of his tabernacle; 30 behold he will stretch his bow against him, and he covers the bottom of the sea. 31 For by them he will judge the nations: he will give food to him that has strength. 32 He has hidden the light in [his] hands, and given charge concerning it to the interposing [cloud]. 33 The Lord will declare concerning this [to] his friend: [but there is] a portion also for unrighteousness.||
ΠΡΟΣΘΕΙΣ δὲ ἔτι ᾿Ελιοὺς λέγει· 2 μεῖνόν με μικρὸν ἔτι, ἵνα διδάξω σε· ἔτι γὰρ ἐν ἐμοί ἐστι λέξις. 3 ἀναλαβὼν τὴν ἐπιστήμην μου μακράν, ἔργοις δέ μου δίκαια ἐρῶ ἐπ᾿ ἀληθείας 4 καὶ οὐκ ἄδικα ῥήματα ἀδίκως συνιεῖς. 5 γίνωσκε δὲ ὅτι ὁ Κύριος οὐ μὴ ἀποποιήσηται τὸν ἄκακον. δυνατὸς ἰσχύϊ καρδίας 6 ἀσεβῆ οὐ μὴ ζωοποιήσει καὶ κρίμα πτωχῶν δώσει. 7 οὐκ ἀφελεῖ ἀπὸ δικαίου ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ· καὶ μετὰ βασιλέων εἰς θρόνον καὶ καθιεῖ αὐτοὺς εἰς νῖκος, καὶ ὑψωθήσονται. 8 καὶ οἱ πεπεδημένοι ἐν χειροπέδαις συσχεθήσονται ἐν σχοινίοις πενίας, 9 καὶ ἀναγγελεῖ αὐτοῖς τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ παραπτώματα αὐτῶν, ὅτι ἰσχύσουσιν. 10 ἀλλὰ τοῦ δικαίου εἰσακούσεται· καὶ εἶπεν ὅτι ἐπιστραφήσονται ἐξ ἀδικίας. 11 ἐὰν ἀκούσωσι καὶ δουλεύσωσι, συντελέσουσι τὰς ἡμέρας αὐτῶν ἐν ἀγαθοῖς καὶ τὰ ἔτη αὐτῶν ἐν εὐπρεπείαις. 12 ἀσεβεῖς δὲ οὐ διασῴζει παρὰ τὸ μὴ βούλεσθαι αὐτοὺς εἰδέναι τὸν Κύριον καὶ διότι νουθετούμενοι ἀνήκοοι ἦσαν. 13 καὶ ὑποκριταὶ καρδίᾳ τάξουσι θυμόν· οὐ βοήσονται, ὅτι ἔδησεν αὐτούς. 14 ἀποθάνοι τοίνυν ἐν νεότητι ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτῶν, ἡ δὲ ζωὴ αὐτῶν τιτρωσκομένη ὑπὸ ἀγγέλων, 15 ἀνθ᾿ ὧν ἔθλιψαν ἀσθενῆ καὶ ἀδύνατον, κρίμα δὲ πρᾳέων ἐκθήσει. 16 καὶ προσέτι ἠπάτησέ σε ἐκ στόματος ἐχθροῦ· ἄβυσσος, κατάχυσις ὑποκάτω αὐτῆς, καὶ κατέβη τράπεζά σου πλήρης πιότητος. 17 οὐχ ὑστερήσει δὲ ἀπὸ δικαίων κρίμα, 18 θυμὸς δὲ ἐπ᾿ ἀσεβεῖς ἔσται δι᾿ ἀσέβειαν δώρων, ὧν ἐδέχοντο ἐπ᾿ ἀδικίαις. 19 μή σε ἐκκλινάτω ἑκὼν ὁ νοῦς δεήσεως ἐν ἀνάγκῃ ὄντων ἀδυνάτων, καὶ πάντας τοὺς κραταιοῦντας ἰσχύν. 20 μὴ ἐξελκύσῃς τὴν νύκτα τοῦ ἀναβῆναι λαοὺς ἀντ᾿ αὐτῶν· 21 ἀλλὰ φύλαξαι μὴ πράξῃς ἄτοπα· ἐπὶ τούτων γὰρ ἐξείλω ἀπὸ πτωχείας. 22 ἰδοὺ ὁ ᾿Ισχυρὸς κραταιώσει ἐν ἰσχύϊ αὐτοῦ· τίς γάρ ἐστι κατ᾿ αὐτὸν δυνάστης; 23 τίς δέ ἐστιν ὁ ἐτάζων αὐτοῦ τὰ ἔργα; ἢ τίς ὁ εἰπών· ἔπραξεν ἄδικα; 24 μνήσθητι, ὅτι μεγάλα ἐστὶν αὐτοῦ τὰ ἔργα, ὧν ἦρξαν ἄνδρες. 25 πᾶς ἄνθρωπος εἶδεν ἐν ἑαυτῷ, ὅσοι τιτρωσκόμενοί εἰσι βροτοί. 26 ἰδοὺ ὁ ᾿Ισχυρὸς πολύς, καὶ οὐ γνωσόμεθα· ἀριθμὸς ἐτῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀπέραντος. 27 ἀριθμηταὶ δὲ αὐτῷ σταγόνες ὑετοῦ, καὶ ἐπιχυθήσονται ὑετῷ εἰς νεφέλην· 28 ρυήσονται παλαιώματα, ἐσκίασε δὲ νέφη ἐπὶ ἀμυθήτων βροτῶν. 28α ὥραν ἔθετο κτήνεσιν, οἴδασι δὲ κοίτης τάξιν. 28β ἐπὶ τούτοις πᾶσιν οὐκ ἐξίσταταί σου ἡ διάνοια οὐδὲ διαλλάσσεταί σου ἡ καρδία ἀπὸ σώματος; 29 καὶ ἐὰν συνῇ ἀπεκτάσεις νεφέλης, ἰσότητα σκηνῆς αὐτοῦ, 30 ἰδοὺ ἐκτενεῖ ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν ἠδὼ καὶ ριζώματα τῆς θαλάσσης ἐκάλυψεν· 31 ἐν γὰρ αὐτοῖς κρινεῖ λαούς, δώσει τροφὴν τῷ ἰσχύοντι. 32 ἐπὶ χειρῶν ἐκάλυψε φῶς καὶ ἐνετείλατο περὶ αὐτῆς ἐν ἀπαντῶντι· 33 ἀναγγελεῖ περὶ αὐτοῦ φίλον αὐτοῦ Κύριος, κτῆσις καὶ περὶ ἀδικίας.
