Job 34:28-30 The Voice (VOICE)

28     As a result of their injustice,
        the poor cried out to Him
    And as you ought to know well,
        He always hears the cries of the needy, of the oppressed peoples.
29     If God remains silent, who is fit to raise his voice against Him?
        If He chooses to hide His face, who is able to see Him?
    This goes for a nation or an individual;
        all are the same.
30     A person estranged from God must be prevented from ruling over any nation
        and from laying snares for the downfall of a people.

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.
