Job 35:3
For thou saidst, ‘What advantage will it be unto Thee?’ and, ‘What profit shall I have if I be cleansed from my sin?’
That thou sayest, What advantage will it be unto thee? And, What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?
“For you say, ‘What advantage have you [by living a righteous life]? What profit will I have, more [by being righteous] than if I had sinned?’
That you ask, What advantage have you? How am I profited more than if I had sinned?
For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
Yet you ask, “What does it benefit you? What have I gained by avoiding sin?”
For you ask what advantage it is to you, ‘How do I gain from not sinning?’
Don’t you honestly believe it pays to obey him?
For thou hast asked of what profit it is unto thee: what do I gain more than if I had sinned?
For thou saidst: That which is right doth not please thee: or what will it profit thee if I sin?
because you also ask him, ‘What’s the use of trying to please you? What good will it do me if I don’t sin?’
that you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
that you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
but you also ask, ‘What’s the use? ·I don’t gain [L How have I gained…?] anything by not sinning.’
For thou hast said, What profiteth it thee, and what availeth it me, to purge me from my sin?
when you ask, ‘What benefit is it to you?’ and, ‘What would I gain by sinning?’
or to ask God, “How does my sin affect you? What have I gained by not sinning?”
For you ask, “What does it profit You, and what benefit comes to me, if I do not sin?”
But you say to him, ‘What good is it to me? I don’t gain anything by not sinning.’
After all, you’ve asked what your benefit will be: ‘What will I profit from refraining from sin?’
For thou didst say, What advantage will it be unto thee? And, What profit shall I have, if I am cleansed from my sin?
For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
If you ask what it profits you: ‘How do I benefit by refraining from my sin?’
“Do you think it is right for you to claim, ‘I haven’t sinned, but I’m no better off before God than if I had’?
Elihu lit into Job again: “Does this kind of thing make any sense? First you say, ‘I’m perfectly innocent before God.’ And then you say, ‘It doesn’t make a bit of difference whether I’ve sinned or not.’
For you said, ‘What advantage will it be to me? What profit will I have if I am cleansed from my sin?’
when you ask, ‘What benefit is it to you?’ and, ‘What would I gain by sinning?’
When you ask what it profits you, “What advantage do I have from not sinning?”
“For you say, ‘What advantage will it be to You? What profit will I have, more than if I had sinned?’
but you also ask, ‘What’s the use? I don’t gain anything by not sinning.’
But you say, ‘What will it profit you,’ and, ‘What do I gain by not sinning?’
You ask him, ‘What good is it for me not to sin? What do I get by not sinning?’
Yet you ask him, ‘What profit is it to me, and what do I gain by not sinning?’
Yet you ask him, “What profit is it to me, and what do I gain by not sinning?”
For you say, ‘What advantage will it be to You? What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?’
For you ask, ‘What will You get by it? How will it be better for me than if I had sinned?’
For you also ask, ‘What’s in it for me? What’s the use of living a righteous life?’
If you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
If you ask, “What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?”
If you ask, “What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?”
If you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
Ki (yet) thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned [see 9:22]?
that you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
that you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
For you ask, ‘What will it profit you?’ and ‘What do I gain by not sinning?’
For you say something like, “What good does it do You if I do right? What is in it for me if I don’t sin?”
That you ask, ‘What advantage will it be to you? What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?’
For thou saidest, That, that is good, pleaseth not thee; either what profiteth it to thee, if I do sin? (For thou hast said, What is good, pleaseth thee not; or what profiteth it to me, if I do not sin?)
For thou sayest, `What doth it profit Thee! What do I profit from my sin?'
