10 “Therefore listen to me, you 3men of understanding:
gFar be it from God to do wickedness,
And from the Almighty to commit iniquity.
11 hFor He repays man according to his work,
And makes man to find a reward according to his way.
Nor will the Almighty ipervert justice.
Or who appointed Him over the whole world?
If He should jgather to Himself His Spirit and His breath,
15 kAll flesh would perish together,
And man would return to dust.
