The Book of Job (WEB)

11: 1Then Zophar, the Naamathite, answered,

 11:2"Shouldn't the multitude of words be answered?
      Should a man full of talk be justified?

 11:3Should your boastings make men hold their peace?
      When you mock, shall no man make you ashamed?

 11:4For you say, 'My doctrine is pure,
      I am clean in your eyes.'

 11:5But oh that God would speak,
      And open his lips against you,

 11:6That 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.

  11:7"Can you fathom the mystery of God?
      Or can you probe the limits of the Almighty?

 11:8They are high as heaven. What can you do?
      Deeper than Sheol: what can you know?

 11:9The measure of it is longer than the earth,
      And broader than the sea.

 11:10If he passes by, or confines,
      Or convenes a court, then who can oppose him?

 11:11For he knows false men.
      He sees iniquity also, even though he doesn't consider it.

 11:12But vain man can become wise
      If a man can be born as a wild donkey's colt.

  11:13"If you set your heart aright,
      Stretch out your hands toward him.

 11:14If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away,
      Don't let unrighteousness dwell in your tents.

 11:15Surely then shall you lift up your face without spot;
      Yes, you shall be steadfast, and shall not fear:

 11:16For you shall forget your misery;
      You shall remember it as waters that are passed away,

 11:17Life shall be clearer than the noonday;
      Though there is darkness, it shall be as the morning.

 11:18You shall be secure, because there is hope;
      Yes, you shall search, and shall take your rest in safety.

 11:19Also you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid;
      Yes, many shall court your favor.

 11:20But the eyes of the wicked shall fail,
      They shall have no way to flee;
      Their hope shall be the giving up of the spirit."
