2 a“Can a man be profitable to God?
Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.
3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if you are in the right,
or is it gain to him if you bmake your ways blameless?
7 aIf you are righteous, what do you give to him?
Or what does he receive from your hand?
35 “Or wwho has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”
