Thoughts of Youth

“Elihu also proceeded, and said,  ‘Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God’s behalf.  I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.  For truly my words shall not be false: He that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.
Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not, mighty in strength and wisdom. He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor. He 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. And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction; then He sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.  He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.  If they obey and serve they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.  But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.  But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when He bindeth them.  They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.  He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.”  Job 36:1-15  (KJB)
