Zophar Rebukes Job1 Then Zophar the Naamathite ▼
▼ Lit answered and saidanswered, 2 “Shall a multitude of words go unanswered,
And a b talkative man be acquitted?
3 “Shall your boasts silence men?
And shall you c scoff and none rebuke?
4 “For d you have said, ‘My teaching is pure,
And e I am innocent in your eyes.’
5 “But would that God might speak,
And open His lips against you,
6 And show you the secrets of wisdom!
For sound wisdom ▼
▼ Lit is double, g has two sides.
Know then that God ▼
▼ Lit causes to be forgotten for youforgets a part of i your iniquity.
7 j “Can you discover the depths of God?
Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?
8 “They are k high as ▼
▼ Lit the heights of heaventhe heavens, what can you do?
Deeper than ▼
▼ I.e. the nether world, n Sheol, what can you know?
9 “Its measure is longer than the earth
And broader than the sea.
10 “If He passes by or shuts up,
Or calls an assembly o who can restrain Him?
11 “For p He knows false men,
And He q sees iniquity ▼
▼ Or even He does not considerwithout investigating.
▼ Lit A hollow man, t “An idiot will become intelligent
When the ▼
▼ Lit donkeyfoal of a v wild donkey is born a man.
13 w “If you would x direct your heart right
And y spread out your hand to Him,
14 If iniquity is in your hand z put it far away,
And do not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
15 “Then, indeed, you could aa lift up your face without moral defect,
And you would be steadfast and ab not fear.
16 “For you would ac forget your trouble,
As ad waters that have passed by, you would remember it.
17 “Your ▼
▼ Lit duration of lifelife would be ▼
▼ Lit above noonday, ag brighter than noonday;
Darkness would be like the morning.
18 “Then you would trust, because there is hope;
And you would look around and rest securely.
19 “You would ah lie down and none would disturb you,
And many would ai entreat your ▼
▼ Lit facefavor.
20 “But the ak eyes of the wicked will fail,
▼ Lit escape has perished from themthere will am be no escape for them;
And their an hope is ▼
▼ Lit the expiring of the soul, ap to breathe their last.”
