Job 11 (WEBP)

[1] Then Zophar, the Naamathite, answered,
[2] “Shouldn’t the multitude of words be answered? Should a man full of talk be justified?
[3] Should your boastings make men hold their peace? When you mock, will no man make you ashamed?
[4] For you say, ‘My doctrine is pure. I am clean in your eyes.’
[5] But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against you,
[6] that he would show you the secrets of wisdom! For true wisdom has two sides. Know therefore that God exacts of you less than your iniquity deserves.
[7] “Can you fathom the mystery of God? Or can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
[8] They are high as heaven. What can you do? They are deeper than Sheol.° What can you know?
[9] Its measure is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
[10] If he passes by, or confines, or convenes a court, then who can oppose him?
[11] For he knows false men. He sees iniquity also, even though he doesn’t consider it.
[12] An empty-headed man becomes wise when a man is born as a wild donkey’s colt.
[13] “If you set your heart aright, stretch out your hands toward him.
[14] If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away. Don’t let unrighteousness dwell in your tents.
[15] Surely then you will lift up your face without spot. Yes, you will be steadfast, and will not fear,
[16] for you will forget your misery. You will remember it like waters that have passed away.
[17] Life will be clearer than the noonday. Though there is darkness, it will be as the morning.
[18] You will be secure, because there is hope. Yes, you will search, and will take your rest in safety.
[19] Also you will lie down, and no one will make you afraid. Yes, many will court your favor.
[20] But the eyes of the wicked will fail. They will have no way to flee. Their hope will be the giving up of the spirit.”

Job 11:8 Sheol is the place of the dead.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 11 (KJVS)

[1] Then answered H6030 (8799) Zophar H6691 the Naamathite H5284, and said H559 (8799),
[2] Should not the multitude H7230 of words H1697 be answered H6030 (8735)? and should a man H376 full of talk H8193 be justified H6663 (8799)?
[3] Should thy lies H907 make H2790 men H4962 hold their peace H2790 (8686)? and when thou mockest H3932 (8799), shall no man make thee ashamed H3637 (8688)?
[4] For thou hast said H559 (8799), My doctrine H3948 [is] pure H2134, and I am clean H1249 in thine eyes H5869.
[5] But H199 oh that H5414 (8799) God H433 would speak H1696 (8763), and open H6605 (8799) his lips H8193 against thee;
[6] And that he would shew H5046 (8686) thee the secrets H8587 of wisdom H2451, that [they are] double H3718 to that which is H8454! Know H3045 (8798) therefore that God H433 exacteth H5382 (8686) of thee [less] than thine iniquity H5771 [deserveth].
[7] Canst thou by searching H2714 find out H4672 (8799) God H433? canst thou find H4672 (8799) out the Almighty H7706 unto perfection H8503?
[8] [It is] as high H1363 as heaven H8064; what canst thou do H6466 (8799)? deeper H6013 than hell H7585; what canst thou know H3045 (8799)?
[9] The measure H4055 thereof [is] longer H752 than the earth H776, and broader H7342 than the sea H3220.
[10] If he cut off H2498 (8799), and shut up H5462 (8686), or gather together H6950 (8686), then who can hinder H7725 (8686) him?
[11] For he knoweth H3045 (8804) vain H7723 men H4962: he seeth H7200 (8799) wickedness H205 also; will he not then consider H995 (8709) [it]?
[12] For vain H5014 (8803) man H376 would be wise H3823 (8735), though man H120 be born H3205 (8735) [like] a wild ass’s H6501 colt H5895.
[13] If thou prepare H3559 (8689) thine heart H3820, and stretch H6566 (8804) out thine hands H3709 toward him;
[14] If iniquity H205 [be] in thine hand H3027, put it far away H7368 (8685), and let not wickedness H5766 dwell H7931 (8686) in thy tabernacles H168.
[15] For then shalt thou lift up H5375 (8799) thy face H6440 without spot H3971; yea, thou shalt be stedfast H3332 (8716), and shalt not fear H3372 (8799):
[16] Because thou shalt forget H7911 (8799) [thy] misery H5999, [and] remember H2142 (8799) [it] as waters H4325 [that] pass away H5674 (8804):
[17] And [thine] age H2465 shall be clearer H6965 (8799) than the noonday H6672; thou shalt shine forth H5774 (8799), thou shalt be as the morning H1242.
[18] And thou shalt be secure H982 (8804), because there is H3426 hope H8615; yea, thou shalt dig H2658 (8804) [about thee, and] thou shalt take thy rest H7901 (8799) in safety H983.
[19] Also thou shalt lie down H7257 (8804), and none shall make [thee] afraid H2729 (8688); yea, many H7227 shall make suit H2470 (8765) unto thee H6440.
[20] But the eyes H5869 of the wicked H7563 shall fail H3615 (8799), and they shall not escape H6 (8804) H4498, and their hope H8615 [shall be as] the giving up H4646 of the ghost H5315.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 11 (YLT)

[1] And Zophar the Naamathite answereth and saith:-
[2] Is a multitude of words not answered? And is a man of lips justified?
[3] Thy devices make men keep silent, Thou scornest, and none is causing blushing!
[4] And thou sayest, ‘Pure is my discourse, And clean I have been in Thine eyes.’
[5] And yet, O that God had spoken! And doth open His lips with thee.
[6] And declare to thee secrets of wisdom, For counsel hath foldings. And know thou that God forgetteth for thee, Some of thine iniquity.
[7] By searching dost thou find out God? Unto perfection find out the Mighty One?
[8] Heights of the heavens!-what dost thou? Deeper than Sheol!-what knowest thou?
[9] Longer than earth is its measure, And broader than the sea.
[10] If He pass on, and shut up, and assemble, Who then dost reverse it?
[11] For he hath known men of vanity, And He seeth iniquity, And one doth not consider it!
[12] And empty man is bold, And the colt of a wild ass man is born.
[13] If thou-thou hast prepared thy heart, And hast spread out unto Him thy hands,
[14] If iniquity is in thy hand, put it far off, And let not perverseness dwell in thy tents.
[15] For then thou liftest up thy face from blemish, And thou hast been firm, and fearest not.
[16] For thou dost forget misery, As waters passed away thou rememberest.
[17] And above the noon doth age rise, Thou fliest-as the morning thou art.
[18] And thou hast trusted because their is hope, And searched-in confidence thou liest down,
[19] And thou hast rested, And none is causing trembling, And many have entreated thy face;
[20] And the eyes of the wicked are consumed, And refuge hath perished from them, And their hope is a breathing out of soul!
