Job 34:21-30 World English Bible (WEB)

21 “For his eyes are on the ways of a man.
    He sees all his goings.
22 There is no darkness, nor thick gloom,
    where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
23 For he doesn’t need to consider a man further,
    that he should go before God in judgment.
24 He breaks in pieces mighty men in ways past finding out,
    and sets others in their place.
25 Therefore he takes knowledge of their works.
    He overturns them in the night, so that they are destroyed.
26 He strikes them as wicked men
    in the open sight of others;
27 because they turned aside from following him,
    and wouldn’t pay attention to any of his ways,
28 so that they caused the cry of the poor to come to him.
    He heard the cry of the afflicted.
29 When he gives quietness, who then can condemn?
    When he hides his face, who then can see him?
    Alike whether to a nation, or to a man,
30 that the godless man may not reign,
    that there be no one to ensnare the people.

Job 34:21-30 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

21 “For His eyes are upon the ways of a man,
And He sees all his steps.
22 “There is no darkness or deep shadow
Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
23 “For He does not need to consider a man further,
That he should go before God in judgment.
24 “He breaks in pieces mighty men without inquiry,
And sets others in their place.
25 “Therefore He knows their works,
And He overthrows them in the night,
And they are crushed.
26 “He strikes them like the wicked
[a]In a public place,
27 Because they turned aside from following Him,
And had no regard for any of His ways;
28 So that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him,
And that He might hear the cry of the afflicted—
29 When He keeps quiet, who then can condemn?
And when He hides His face, who then can behold Him,
That is, in regard to both nation and man?—
30 So that godless men would not rule
Nor be snares of the people.
