Job 11

GNTA 1 Will no one answer all this nonsense? NIV 1 Then Zophar the Naamathite replied: GNTA 2 Does talking so much put you in the right? NIV 2 “Are all these words to go unanswered? Is this talker to be vindicated? GNTA 3 Job, do you think we can't answer you? That your mocking words will leave us speechless? NIV 3 Will your idle talk reduce others to silence? Will no one rebuke you when you mock? GNTA 4 You claim that what you say is true; you claim you are pure in the sight of God. NIV 4 You say to God, ‘My beliefs are flawless and I am pure in your sight.’ GNTA 5 How I wish God would answer you! NIV 5 Oh, how I wish that God would speak, that he would open his lips against you GNTA 6 He would tell you there are many sides to wisdom; there are things too deep for human knowledge. God is punishing you less than you deserve. 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. GNTA 7 Can you discover the limits and bounds of the greatness and power of God? NIV 7 “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? GNTA 8 The sky is no limit for God, but it lies beyond your reach. God knows the world of the dead, but you do not know it. NIV 8 They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know? GNTA 9 God's greatness is broader than the earth, wider than the sea. NIV 9 Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea. GNTA 10 If God arrests you and brings you to trial, who is there to stop him? NIV 10 “If he comes along and confines you in prison and convenes a court, who can oppose him? GNTA 11 God knows which people are worthless; he sees all their evil deeds. NIV 11 Surely he recognizes deceivers; and when he sees evil, does he not take note? GNTA 12 Stupid people will start being wise when wild donkeys are born tame. NIV 12 But the witless can no more become wise than a wild donkey’s colt can be born human. GNTA 13 Put your heart right, Job. Reach out to God. NIV 13 “Yet if you devote your heart to him and stretch out your hands to him, GNTA 14 Put away evil and wrong from your home. NIV 14 if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent, GNTA 15 Then face the world again, firm and courageous. NIV 15 then, free of fault, you will lift up your face; you will stand firm and without fear. GNTA 16 Then all your troubles will fade from your memory, like floods that are past and remembered no more. NIV 16 You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. GNTA 17 Your life will be brighter than sunshine at noon, and life's darkest hours will shine like the dawn. NIV 17 Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning. GNTA 18 You will live secure and full of hope; God will protect you and give you rest. NIV 18 You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. GNTA 19 You won't be afraid of your enemies; many people will ask you for help. NIV 19 You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor. GNTA 20 But the wicked will look around in despair and find that there is no way to escape. Their one hope is that death will come. NIV 20 But the eyes of the wicked will fail, and escape will elude them; their hope will become a dying gasp.”
