Job 34:10–15 — The New International Version (NIV)

10 “So listen to me, you men of understanding.

Far be it from God to do evil,

from the Almighty to do wrong.

11 He repays everyone for what they have done;

he brings on them what their conduct deserves.

12 It is unthinkable that God would do wrong,

that the Almighty would pervert justice.

13 Who appointed him over the earth?

Who put him in charge of the whole world?

14 If it were his intention

and he withdrew his spirit and breath,

15 all humanity would perish together

and mankind would return to the dust.

Job 34:10–15 — English Standard Version (ESV)

10 “Therefore, hear me, you men of understanding:

far be it from God that he should do wickedness,

and from the Almighty that he should do wrong.

11 For according to the work of a man he will repay him,

and according to his ways he will make it befall him.

12 Of a truth, God will not do wickedly,

and the Almighty will not pervert justice.

13 Who gave him charge over the earth,

and who laid on him the whole world?

14 If he should set his heart to it

and gather to himself his spirit and his breath,

15 all flesh would perish together,

and man would return to dust.

Job 34:10–15 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding:

Far be it from God, that he should do wickedness;

And from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.

11 For the work of a man shall he render unto him,

And cause every man to find according to his ways.

12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly,

Neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

13 Who hath given him a charge over the earth?

Or who hath disposed the whole world?

14 If he set his heart upon man,

If he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;

15 All flesh shall perish together,

And man shall turn again unto dust.

Job 34:10–15 — New Living Translation (NLT)

10 “Listen to me, you who have understanding.

Everyone knows that God doesn’t sin!

The Almighty can do no wrong.

11 He repays people according to their deeds.

He treats people as they deserve.

12 Truly, God will not do wrong.

The Almighty will not twist justice.

13 Did someone else put the world in his care?

Who set the whole world in place?

14 If God were to take back his spirit

and withdraw his breath,

15 all life would cease,

and humanity would turn again to dust.

Job 34:10–15 — New Century Version (NCV)

10 “So listen to me, you who can understand.

God can never do wrong!

It is impossible for the Almighty to do evil.

11 God pays people back for what they have done

and gives them what their actions deserve.

12 Truly God will never do wrong;

the Almighty will never twist what is right.

13 No one chose God to rule over the earth

or put him in charge of the whole world.

14 If God should decide

to take away life and breath,

15 then everyone would die together

and turn back into dust.

Job 34:10–15 — American Standard Version (ASV 1901)

10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding:

Far be it from God, that he should do wickedness,

And from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.

11 For the work of a man will he render unto him,

And cause every man to find according to his ways.

12 Yea, of a surety, God will not do wickedly,

Neither will the Almighty pervert justice.

13 Who gave him a charge over the earth?

Or who hath disposed the whole world?

14 If he set his heart upon himself,

If he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;

15 All flesh shall perish together,

And man shall turn again unto dust.

10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: Far be wickedness from •God, and wrong from the Almighty! 11 For a man’s work will he render to him, and cause every one to find according to his way. 12 Yea, surely, •God acteth not wickedly, and the Almighty perverteth not judgment. 13 Who hath entrusted to him the earth? and who hath disposed the whole world? 14 If he only thought of himself, and gathered unto him his spirit and his breath, 15 All flesh would expire together, and man would return to the dust.

Job 34:10–15 — GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

10 “You people who have understanding, listen to me.

It is unthinkable that God would ever do evil

or that the Almighty would ever do wicked things.

11 God will repay humanity for what it has done

and will give each person what he deserves.

12 Certainly, God will never do anything evil,

and the Almighty will never pervert justice.

13 Who put him in charge of the earth?

Who appointed him to be over the whole world?

14 If he thought only of himself

and withdrew his Spirit and his breath,

15 all living beings would die together,

and humanity would return to dust.

Job 34:10–15 — The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

10 Therefore listen to me, you men of understanding.

It is impossible for God to do wrong,

and for the Almighty to act unjustly.

11 For He repays a person according to his deeds,

and He brings his ways on him.

12 Indeed, it is true that God does not act wickedly

and the Almighty does not pervert justice.

13 Who gave Him authority over the earth?

Who put Him in charge of the entire world?

14 If He put His mind to it

and withdrew the spirit and breath He gave,

15 every living thing would perish together

and mankind would return to the dust.

Job 34:10–15 — The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

10 “Therefore, hear me, you who have sense,

far be it from God that he should do wickedness,

and from the Almighty that he should do wrong.

11 For according to their deeds he will repay them,

and according to their ways he will make it befall them.

12 Of a truth, God will not do wickedly,

and the Almighty will not pervert justice.

13 Who gave him charge over the earth

and who laid on him the whole world?

14 If he should take back his spirit to himself,

and gather to himself his breath,

15 all flesh would perish together,

and all mortals return to dust.

Job 34:10–15 — The Lexham English Bible (LEB)

10 “Therefore, listen to me, people who have sense:

far be it from God that he should commit wickedness

and that Shaddai should do wrong.

11 Indeed, he will repay according to a human being’s deeds,

and according to a man’s way he will let it happen to him.

12 What’s more, God truly does not act wickedly,

and Shaddai does not pervert justice.

13 Who gave him charge over the earth?

Or who laid on him the whole world?

14 If he should set his heart to it,

and he should gather his spirit and his breath to himself,

15 all flesh would perish together,

and humankind would return to dust.

Job 34:10–15 — New International Reader’s Version, 1998 ed. (NIrV) (NIrV)

10 “So listen to me, you men who have understanding.

God would never do what is evil.

The Mighty One would never do what is wrong.

11 He pays a man back for what he’s done.

He gives him exactly what he should get.

12 It isn’t possible for God to do wrong.

The Mighty One would never treat people unfairly.

13 Who appointed him to rule over the earth?

Who put him in charge of the whole world?

14 If he really wanted to,

he could hold back his spirit and breath.

15 Then everyone would die together.

They would return to the dust.

Job 34:10–15 — New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (NASB95)

10 Therefore, listen to me, you men of understanding.

Far be it from God to do wickedness,

And from the Almighty to do wrong.

11 “For He pays a man according to his work,

And makes him find it according to his way.

12 Surely, God will not act wickedly,

And the Almighty will not pervert justice.

13 Who gave Him authority over the earth?

And who has laid on Him the whole world?

14 If He should determine to do so,

If He should gather to Himself His spirit and His breath,

15 All flesh would perish together,

And man would return to dust.
