Zophar Urges Job to Repent
Zophar Urges Job to Repent
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:1 - Then Zophar the Naamathite answered and said:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:2 - “Should not the multitude of words be answered?
And should a man full of talk be vindicated?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:3 - Should your empty talk make men hold their peace?
And when you mock, should no one rebuke you?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:4 - For you have said,
‘My doctrine is pure,
And I am clean in your eyes.’
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:5 - But oh, that God would speak,
And open His lips against you,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:6 - That He would show you the secrets of wisdom!
For they would double your prudence.
Know therefore that God exacts from you
Less than your iniquity deserves.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:7 - “Can you search out the deep things of God?
Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:8 - They are higher than heaven— what can you do?
Deeper than Sheol— what can you know?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:9 - Their measure is longer than the earth
And broader than the sea.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:10 - “If He passes by, imprisons, and gathers to judgment,
Then who can hinder Him?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:11 - For He knows deceitful men;
He sees wickedness also.
Will He not then consider it?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:12 - For an empty-headed man will be wise,
When a wild donkey’s colt is born a man.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:13 - “If you would prepare your heart,
And stretch out your hands toward Him;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:14 - If iniquity were in your hand, and you put it far away,
And would not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:15 - Then surely you could lift up your face without spot;
Yes, you could be steadfast, and not fear;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:16 - Because you would forget your misery,
And remember it as waters that have passed away,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:17 - And your life would be brighter than noonday.
Though you were dark, you would be like the morning.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:18 - And you would be secure, because there is hope;
Yes, you would dig around you, and take your rest in safety.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:19 - You would also lie down, and no one would make you afraid;
Yes, many would court your favor.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 11:20 - But the eyes of the wicked will fail,
And they shall not escape,
And their hope—loss of life!”
