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 (KJVS)

[1] Then answered () Zophar the Naamathite , and said (),
[2] Should not the multitude of words be answered ()? and should a man full of talk be justified ()?
[3] Should thy lies make men hold their peace ()? and when thou mockest (), shall no man make thee ashamed ()?
[4] For thou hast said (), My doctrine [is] pure , and I am clean in thine eyes .
[5] But oh that () God would speak (), and open () his lips against thee;
[6] And that he would shew () thee the secrets of wisdom , that [they are] double to that which is ! Know () therefore that God exacteth () of thee [less] than thine iniquity [deserveth].
[7] Canst thou by searching find out () God ? canst thou find () out the Almighty unto perfection ?
[8] [It is] as high as heaven ; what canst thou do ()? deeper than hell ; what canst thou know ()?
[9] The measure thereof [is] longer than the earth , and broader than the sea .
[10] If he cut off (), and shut up (), or gather together (), then who can hinder () him?
[11] For he knoweth () vain men : he seeth () wickedness also; will he not then consider () [it]?
[12] For vain () man would be wise (), though man be born () [like] a wild ass’s colt .
[13] If thou prepare () thine heart , and stretch () out thine hands toward him;
[14] If iniquity [be] in thine hand , put it far away (), and let not wickedness dwell () in thy tabernacles .
[15] For then shalt thou lift up () thy face without spot ; yea, thou shalt be stedfast (), and shalt not fear ():

[17] And [thine] age shall be clearer () than the noonday ; thou shalt shine forth (), thou shalt be as the morning .

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!
