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