Job 34:28-30 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
28 They caused poor people to cry out to him.
He heard the cries of those who were in need.
29 But if he remains silent, who can judge him?
If he turns his face away, who can see him?
He rules over individual people and nations alike.
30 He keeps those who are ungodly from ruling.
He keeps them from laying traps for others.
Job 34:28-30 New International Version (NIV)
28 They caused the cry of the poor to come before him,
so that he heard the cry of the needy.
29 But if he remains silent, who can condemn him?
If he hides his face, who can see him?
Yet he is over individual and nation alike,
30 to keep the godless from ruling,
from laying snares for the people.
