Chapter 11

JOB.11:1 Then Zophar the Naamathite answered and said:
JOB.11:2 “Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be vindicated?
JOB.11:3 Should your empty talk make men hold their peace? And when you mock, should no one rebuke you?
JOB.11:4 For you have said, ‘My doctrine is pure, And I am clean in your eyes.’
JOB.11:5 But oh, that God would speak, And open His lips against you,
JOB.11:6 That He would show you the secrets of wisdom! For they would double your prudence. Know therefore that God exacts from you Less than your iniquity deserves.
JOB.11:7 “Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?
JOB.11:8 They are higher than heaven-what can you do? Deeper than Sheol-what can you know?
JOB.11:9 Their measure is longer than the earth And broader than the sea.
JOB.11:10 “If He passes by, imprisons, and gathers to judgment, Then who can hinder Him?
JOB.11:11 For He knows deceitful men; He sees wickedness also. Will He not then consider it?
JOB.11:12 For an empty-headed man will be wise, When a wild donkey’s colt is born a man.
JOB.11:13 “If you would prepare your heart, And stretch out your hands toward Him;
JOB.11:14 If iniquity were in your hand, and you put it far away, And would not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
JOB.11:15 Then surely you could lift up your face without spot; Yes, you could be steadfast, and not fear;
JOB.11:16 Because you would forget your misery, And remember it as waters that have passed away,
JOB.11:17 And your life would be brighter than noonday. Though you were dark, you would be like the morning.
JOB.11:18 And you would be secure, because there is hope; Yes, you would dig around you, and take your rest in safety.
JOB.11:19 You would also lie down, and no one would make you afraid; Yes, many would court your favor.
JOB.11:20 But the eyes of the wicked will fail, And they shall not escape, And their hope-loss of life!”
