Job 11

BBE 1 Then Zophar the Naamathite made answer and said, NIV 1 Then Zophar the Naamathite replied: BBE 2 Are all these words to go unanswered? and is a man seen to be right because he is full of talk? NIV 2 “Are all these words to go unanswered? Is this talker to be vindicated? BBE 3 Are your words of pride to make men keep quiet? and are you to make sport, with no one to put you to shame? NIV 3 Will your idle talk reduce others to silence? Will no one rebuke you when you mock? BBE 4 You may say, My way is clean, and I am free from sin in your eyes. NIV 4 You say to God, ‘My beliefs are flawless and I am pure in your sight.’ BBE 5 But if only God would take up the word, opening his lips in argument with you; NIV 5 Oh, how I wish that God would speak, that he would open his lips against you BBE 6 And would make clear to you the secrets of wisdom, and the wonders of his purpose! NIV 6 and disclose to you the secrets of wisdom, for true wisdom has two sides. Know this: God has even forgotten some of your sin. BBE 7 Are you able to take God's measure, to make discovery of the limits of the Ruler of all? NIV 7 “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? BBE 8 They are higher than heaven; what is there for you to do? deeper than the underworld, and outside your knowledge; NIV 8 They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know? BBE 9 Longer in measure than the earth, and wider than the sea. NIV 9 Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea. BBE 10 If he goes on his way, shutting a man up and putting him to death, who may make him go back from his purpose? NIV 10 “If he comes along and confines you in prison and convenes a court, who can oppose him? BBE 11 For in his eyes men are as nothing; he sees evil and takes note of it. NIV 11 Surely he recognizes deceivers; and when he sees evil, does he not take note? BBE 12 And so a hollow-minded man will get wisdom, when a young ass of the field gets teaching. NIV 12 But the witless can no more become wise than a wild donkey’s colt can be born human. BBE 13 But if you put your heart right, stretching out your hands to him; NIV 13 “Yet if you devote your heart to him and stretch out your hands to him, BBE 14 If you put far away the evil of your hands, and let no wrongdoing have a place in your tent; NIV 14 if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent, BBE 15 Then truly your face will be lifted up, with no mark of sin, and you will be fixed in your place without fear: NIV 15 then, free of fault, you will lift up your face; you will stand firm and without fear. BBE 16 For your sorrow will go from your memory, like waters flowing away: NIV 16 You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. BBE 17 And your life will be brighter than day; though it is dark, it will become like the morning. NIV 17 Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning. BBE 18 And you will be safe because there is hope; after looking round, you will take your rest in quiet; NIV 18 You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. BBE 19 Sleeping with no fear of danger; and men will be desiring to have grace in your eyes; NIV 19 You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor. BBE 20 But the eyes of the evil-doers will be wasting away; their way of flight is gone, and their only hope is the taking of their last breath. NIV 20 But the eyes of the wicked will fail, and escape will elude them; their hope will become a dying gasp.”
