2Cor 5:20  Job 21:3  Exod 4:16  Ezek 2:7  Heb 13:22  Jer 15:19  Job 13:7-8

6 or let the sinner live on in all his power. He does accord fair judgement to the afflicted;
Ps 72:12-14  Ps 140:12  Prov 22:22-23  2Pet 2:9  Exod 22:22-24  Isa 11:4  Jer 12:1-2 

7 he does uphold what the upright deserve. When he raises kings to thrones, if they grow proud of their unending rule,
Ps 33:18  Ps 34:15  Ps 113:7-8  1Pet 3:12  1Sam 2:8  2Thess 3:3  Zeph 3:17 

8 then he fetters them with chains, they are caught in the bonds of affliction.
Ps 107:10  Prov 5:22  Job 13:27  Job 19:6  Job 33:18-19  Lam 3:9  Ps 18:5 

9 He shows them the import of their deeds, of the sins of pride they have committed.

12 If not, they go down the Canal and perish in their stupidity.
Job 4:21  Isa 3:11  Deut 18:15-22  Deut 29:15-20  Isa 1:20  Job 15:22  John 8:21-24 

13 The stubborn, who cherish their anger and do not cry for help when he chains them,
Job 36:8  Rom 2:5  2Chr 28:13  2Chr 28:22  Job 15:4  Job 27:8-10  Job 35:9-10 

14 die in the bloom of youth or live among the male prostitutes of the temple.
Deut 23:17  Job 15:32  Job 22:16  Ps 55:23  Gen 19:5  Gen 19:24-25  Gen 38:7-10 

15 But God saves the afflicted by his affliction, warning him in his misery.
Job 36:10  2Chr 12:8 

16 You, too, he would like to snatch from torment. While you were enjoying boundless abundance, with rich food piled high on your table,
Ps 23:5  Ps 18:19  Ps 118:5  Ps 31:8  Ps 36:8  Hos 2:14  Isa 25:6 

17 you did not bring the wicked to trial and did not give fair judgement to the orphan.
Job 16:5  Job 22:11  Job 34:8  Job 34:36  Rev 18:4  Rom 1:32 

18 Beware of being led astray by abundance, of being corrupted by expensive presents.
Job 33:24  Eph 5:6  Rom 1:18  1Tim 2:6  Ezek 24:16  Heb 2:3  Isa 14:6 

19 Take the powerful to law, not merely the penniless, those whose arm is strong, not merely the weak.
Prov 11:4  Prov 11:21  Isa 2:20  Isa 37:36  Jas 5:3  Job 9:13  Job 34:20 

20 Do not crush people you do not know to install your relations in their place.

22 See, God is sublime in his strength and who can teach lessons as he does?
1Sam 2:7-8  Luke 1:52  Rom 13:1  Dan 4:25  Dan 4:32  Dan 5:18  Isa 14:5 

23 Who has even told him which course to take, or dared to say to him, 'You have done wrong'?
1Cor 2:16  Job 8:3  Eph 1:11  Isa 40:13-14  Job 34:10  Rom 2:5  Rom 11:34 

24 Consider, rather, how you may praise his work, a theme that many have sung.
Luke 1:46  Ps 34:3  Ps 72:18  Rev 15:3  Dan 4:3  Dan 4:37  Deut 4:19

28 And the clouds then pour this out, sending it streaming down on the human race.
Prov 3:20  Gen 7:11-12  Job 37:11-13 

29 And who can fathom how he spreads the clouds, or why such crashes thunder from his tent?
Job 37:16  Job 37:2-5  1Kgs 18:44-45  Hab 3:10  Job 26:14  Job 38:9  Job 38:37

31 By these means, he sustains the peoples, giving them plenty to eat.
Acts 14:17  Job 37:13  Ps 136:25  Ps 104:13-15  Ps 104:27-28  1Sam 2:10  1Sam 7:10 

32 He gathers up the lightning in his hands, assigning it the mark where to strike.
Acts 27:20  Exod 10:21-23  Job 26:9  Job 37:12  Job 37:15  Ps 18:11  Ps 135:7
