31 When such a one says to God, 'I was misled, I shall not do wrong any more;
Job 33:27  Mic 7:9  Dan 9:7-14  Ezra 9:13-14  Jer 31:18-19  Job 40:3-5  Job 42:6

1Cor 10:15  Job 34:2  Job 34:4  Job 34:10  Job 34:16 

35 'Job's words are spoken without any knowledge, what he says shows no intelligence.
