Job - Chapter 011

11:1
Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said:

11:2
Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be accounted right?

11:3
Thy boastings have made men hold their peace, and thou hast mocked, with none to make thee ashamed;

11:4
And thou hast said: 'My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in Thine eyes.'

11:5
But oh that God would speak, and open His lips against thee;

11:6
And that He would tell thee the secrets of wisdom, that sound wisdom is manifold! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.

11:7
Canst thou find out the deep things of God? Canst thou attain unto the purpose of the Almighty?

11:8
It is high as heaven; what canst thou do? Deeper than the nether-world; what canst thou know?

11:9
The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.

11:10
If He pass by, and shut up, or gather in, then who can hinder Him?

11:11
For He knoweth base men; and when He seeth iniquity, will He not then consider it?

11:12
But an empty man will get understanding, when a wild ass's colt is born a man.

11:13
If thou set thy heart aright, and stretch out thy hands toward Him--

11:14
If iniquity be in thy hand, put it far away, and let not unrighteousness dwell in thy tents--

11:15
Surely then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear;

11:16
For thou shalt forget thy misery; thou shalt remember it as waters that are passed away;

11:17
And thy life shall be clearer than the noonday; though there be darkness, it shall be as the morning.

11:18
And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt look about thee, and shalt take thy rest in safety.

11:19
Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.

11:20
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall have no way to flee, and their hope shall be the drooping of the soul.
