Job 11

ASV 1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said, NIV 1 Then Zophar the Naamathite replied: ASV 2 Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be justified? NIV 2 “Are all these words to go unanswered? Is this talker to be vindicated? ASV 3 Should thy boastings make men hold their peace? And when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed? NIV 3 Will your idle talk reduce others to silence? Will no one rebuke you when you mock? ASV 4 For thou sayest, My doctrine is pure, And I am clean in thine eyes. NIV 4 You say to God, ‘My beliefs are flawless and I am pure in your sight.’ ASV 5 But oh that God would speak, And open his lips against thee, NIV 5 Oh, how I wish that God would speak, that he would open his lips against you ASV 6 And that he would show thee the secrets of wisdom! For he is manifold in understanding. Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth. 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. ASV 7 Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? NIV 7 “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? ASV 8 It is high as heaven; what canst thou do? Deeper than Sheol; What canst thou know? NIV 8 They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know? ASV 9 The measure thereof is longer than the earth, And broader than the sea. NIV 9 Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea. ASV 10 If he pass through, and shut up, And all unto judgment, then who can hinder him? NIV 10 “If he comes along and confines you in prison and convenes a court, who can oppose him? ASV 11 For he knoweth false men: He seeth iniquity also, even though he consider it not. NIV 11 Surely he recognizes deceivers; and when he sees evil, does he not take note? ASV 12 But vain man is void of understanding, Yea, man is born [as] a wild ass's colt. NIV 12 But the witless can no more become wise than a wild donkey’s colt can be born human. ASV 13 If thou set thy heart aright, And stretch out thy hands toward him; NIV 13 “Yet if you devote your heart to him and stretch out your hands to him, ASV 14 If iniquity be in thy hand, put it far away, And let not unrighteousness dwell in thy tents. NIV 14 if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent, ASV 15 Surely then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; Yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear: NIV 15 then, free of fault, you will lift up your face; you will stand firm and without fear. ASV 16 For thou shalt forget thy misery; Thou shalt remember it as waters that are passed away, NIV 16 You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. ASV 17 And [thy] life shall be clearer than the noonday; Though there be darkness, it shall be as the morning. NIV 17 Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning. ASV 18 And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; Yea, thou shalt search [about thee], and shalt take thy rest in safety. NIV 18 You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. ASV 19 Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; Yea, many shall make suit unto thee. NIV 19 You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor. ASV 20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, And they shall have no way to flee; And their hope shall be the giving up of the ghost. NIV 20 But the eyes of the wicked will fail, and escape will elude them; their hope will become a dying gasp.”
