Then Zophar the Naamathite1 replied:
"Are all these words to go unanswered?2 Is this talker to be vindicated?3
Will your idle talk4 reduce men to silence? Will no one rebuke you when you mock?5
You say to God, 'My beliefs are flawless6 and I am pure7 in your sight.'
Oh, how I wish that God would speak,8 that he would open his lips against you
and disclose to you the secrets of wisdom,9 for true wisdom has two sides. Know this: God has even forgotten some of your sin.10
