Job Chapter 11 (Index)

001  Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

002  Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified?

003  Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?

004  For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.

005  But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee;

006  And that he would show thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.

007  Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?

008  It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?

009  The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.

010  If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?

011  For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it?

012  For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.

013  If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him;

014  If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.

015  For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:

016  Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:

017  And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.

018  And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.

019  Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.

020  But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.
