Job 11

1Then Zophar the Naamathite answered, and said, 2Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be justified? 3Should thy boastings make men hold their peace? And when thou mock, shall no man make thee ashamed? 4For thou say, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes. 5But O that God would speak, and open his lips against thee, 6and that he would show thee the secrets of wisdom! For he is manifold in understanding. Know therefore that God exacts of thee less than thine iniquity deserves. 7Can thou find out God by searching? Can thou find out the Almighty to perfection? 8It is high as heaven; what can thou do? Deeper than Sheol; what can thou know? 9The measure of it is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea. 10If he passes through, and shuts up, and all to judgment, then who can hinder him? 11For he knows false men. He also sees iniquity. Will he not then consider it? 12But vain man is void of understanding. Yea, man is born as a wild donkey's colt. 13If thou set thy heart aright, and stretch out thy hands toward him, 14if iniquity is in thy hand, put it far away, and let not unrighteousness dwell in thy tents. 15Surely then thou shall lift up thy face without spot. Yea, thou shall be steadfast, and shall not fear. 16For thou shall forget thy misery. Thou shall remember it as waters that are passed away. 17And thy life shall be clearer than the noonday. Though there be darkness, it shall be as the morning. 18And thou shall be secure, because there is hope. Yea, thou shall search about thee, and shall take thy rest in safety. 19Also thou shall lie down, and none shall make thee afraid. Yea, many shall correspond with thee. 20But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall have no way to flee. And their hope shall be the giving up of the spirit.
