Job 11

1Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and sayde,

2Should not the multitude of wordes be answered? or should a great talker be iustified?

3Should men holde their peace at thy lyes? and when thou mockest others, shall none make thee ashamed?

4For thou hast sayde, My doctrine is pure, and I am cleane in thine eyes.

5But, oh that God would speake and open his lippes against thee!

6That he might shewe thee the secretes of wisedome, howe thou hast deserued double, according to right: know therefore that God hath forgotten thee for thine iniquitie.

7Canst thou by searching finde out God? canst thou finde out ye Almighty to his perfection?

8The heauens are hie, what canst thou doe? it is deeper then the hell, how canst thou know it?

9The measure thereof is longer then the earth, and it is broader then the sea.

10If hee cut off and shut vp, or gather together, who can turne him backe?

11For hee knoweth vaine men, and seeth iniquitie, and him that vnderstandeth nothing.

12Yet vaine man would be wise, though man new borne is like a wilde asse colte.

13If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him:

14If iniquitie be in thine hand, put it farre away, and let no wickednesse dwell in thy Tabernacle.

15The truely shalt thou lift vp thy face without spot, and shalt be stable, and shalt not feare.

16But thou shalt forget thy miserie, and remember it as waters that are past.

17Thine age also shall appeare more cleare then the noone day: thou shalt shine and bee as the morning.

18And thou shalt bee bolde, because there is hope: and thou shalt digge pittes, and shalt lye downe safely.

19For when thou takest thy rest, none shall make thee afraide: yea, many shall make sute vnto thee.

20But the eyes of the wicked shall faile, and their refuge shall perish, and their hope shalbe sorow of minde.
