God enacts his justice (Job 34:21-34:26)

“His eyes are upon the ways of mortals.

He sees all their steps.

There is no gloom or deep darkness

Where evildoers may hide themselves.

He has not appointed a time for anyone

To go before God in judgment.

He shatters the mighty without investigation.

He sets others in their place.

Thus, knowing their works,

He overturns them in the night.

They are crushed.

He strikes them for their wickedness,

While others look on.”

Elihu continued that God was always watching humans as he saw every step that they take. The evil doer cannot hide in darkness. No one has an appointed time for their judgment. God strikes the mighty without an investigation. He puts others in their places. He overturns them in the night as he crushes them in the sight of others.
