Job 22.2-12

2“Can a mortal be of use to God? Can even the wisest be of service to him? 3Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if you are righteous, or is it gain to him if you make your ways blameless? 4Is it for your piety that he reproves you, and enters into judgment with you?

5Is not your wickedness great? There is no end to your iniquities. 6For you have exacted pledges from your family for no reason, and stripped the naked of their clothing. 7You have given no water to the weary to drink, and you have withheld bread from the hungry. 8The powerful possess the land, and the favored live in it. 9You have sent widows away empty-handed, and the arms of the orphans you have crushed. 10Therefore snares are around you, and sudden terror overwhelms you, 11or darkness so that you cannot see; a flood of water covers you. 12“Is not God high in the heavens? See the highest stars, how lofty they are!
