5. Zophar's blind argument 11:1-20
Job 11 :1 11:1 Then Zophar the Naamathite answered and said,
Job 11 :2 11:2 Should a multitude of words not be answered?
And should a man of much talk be justified?
Job 11 :3 11:3 Shall your empty talk silence men?
And will you mock, and there be none to shame you?
Job 11 :4 11:4 For you say, My doctrine is pure,
And I am clean in Your eyes.
Job 11 :5 11:5 But, oh, that God would speak
And open His lips to you,
Job 11 :6 11:6 And that He would tell you the secrets of wisdom!
For there are two sides to sound reason.
Know then that God has forgotten some of your iniquity.
Job 11 :7 11:7 Can you find out the 1adepths of God?

And broader than the sea.
Job 11 :10 11:10 If He passes by and imprisons
And summons an assembly, who can stop Him?
Job 11 :11 11:11 For He knows men of falsehood,
And He sees iniquity without considering it.
Job 11 :12 11:12 But an 1empty-headed man acquires intelligence
When the 1foal of a wild ass is born as a man.
Job 11 :13 11:13 If you would set your heart right
And stretch your hands out to Him —
Job 11 :14 11:14 If there is iniquity in your hand, put it far away,
And do not let wrong dwell in your tents —
Job 11 :15 11:15 Then indeed you would lift up your face without blemish,
And you would be asteadfast and would not be afraid.
Job 11 :16 11:16 For you will forget your misery;
You will remember it as waters that have passed away.
Job 11 :17 11:17 And your time here will rise more brightly than the noonday;
Dark though it may be, it will be like the morning.
Job 11 :18 11:18 And you will be secure, for there is hope;
And you will search about and lie down in security.
Job 11 :19 11:19 Indeed you will lie down, and there will be none to terrify you;
And many will entreat your favor.
Job 11 :20 11:20 But the eyes of the wicked will fail,
And fleeing will be lost to them,
And their hope will be to breathe out their life.
