The Holy Bible - The Book of Job, Chapter 36 (Latin)
1Elihu also proceeded, and said,
2Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God's behalf.
3I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
4For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.
5Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.
6He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.
7He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted.
8And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;
9Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.
10He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.
11If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
12But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.
13But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them.
14They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.
15He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.
16Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness.
17But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee.
18Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.
19Will he esteem thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength.
20Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.
21Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.
22Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?
23Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity?
24Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold.
25Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off.
26Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.
27For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:
28Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.
29Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?
30Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea.
31For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance.
32With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt.
33The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour.
1addens quoque Heliu haec locutus est
2sustine me paululum et indicabo tibi adhuc enim habeo quod pro Deo loquar
3repetam scientiam meam a principio et operatorem meum probabo iustum
4vere enim absque mendacio sermones mei et perfecta scientia probabitur tibi
5Deus potentes non abicit cum et ipse sit potens
6sed non salvat impios et iudicium pauperibus tribuit
7non aufert a iusto oculos suos et reges in solio conlocat in perpetuum et illi eriguntur
8et si fuerint in catenis et vinciantur funibus paupertatis
9indicabit eis opera eorum et scelera eorum quia violenti fuerint
10revelabit quoque aurem eorum ut corripiat et loquetur ut revertantur ab iniquitate
11si audierint et observaverint conplebunt dies suos in bono et annos suos in gloria
12si autem non audierint transibunt per gladium et consumentur in stultitia
13simulatores et callidi provocant iram Dei neque clamabunt cum vincti fuerint
14morietur in tempestate anima eorum et vita eorum inter effeminatos
15eripiet pauperem de angustia sua et revelabit in tribulatione aurem eius
16igitur salvabit te de ore angusto latissime et non habentis fundamentum subter se requies autem mensae tuae erit plena pinguedine
17causa tua quasi impii iudicata est causam iudiciumque recipies
18non te ergo superet ira ut aliquem opprimas nec multitudo donorum inclinet te
19depone magnitudinem tuam absque tribulatione et omnes robustos fortitudine
20ne protrahas noctem ut ascendant populi pro eis
21cave ne declines ad iniquitatem hanc enim coepisti sequi post miseriam
22ecce Deus excelsus in fortitudine sua et nullus ei similis in legislatoribus
23quis poterit scrutari vias eius aut quis ei dicere operatus es iniquitatem
24memento quod ignores opus eius de quo cecinerunt viri
25omnes homines vident eum unusquisque intuetur procul
26ecce Deus magnus vincens scientiam nostram numerus annorum eius inaestimabilis
27qui aufert stillas pluviae et effundit imbres ad instar gurgitum
28qui de nubibus fluunt quae praetexunt cuncta desuper
29si voluerit extendere nubes quasi tentorium suum
30et fulgurare lumine suo desuper cardines quoque maris operiet
31per haec enim iudicat populos et dat escas multis mortalibus
32in manibus abscondit lucem et praecipit ei ut rursus adveniat
33adnuntiat de ea amico suo quod possessio eius sit et ad eam possit ascendere
