11:1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

11:2 Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be justified?

11:3 Should thy boastings make men hold their peace? And when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?

11:4 For thou sayest, My doctrine is pure, And I am clean in thine eyes.

11:5 But oh that God would speak, And open his lips against thee,

11:6 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.

11:7 Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?

11:8 It is high as heaven; what canst thou do? Deeper than Sheol; what canst thou know?

11:9 The measure thereof is longer than the earth, And broader than the sea.

11:10 If he pass through, and shut up, And all unto judgment, then who can hinder him?

11:11 For he knoweth false men: He seeth iniquity also, even though he consider it not.

11:12 But vain man is void of understanding, Yea, man is born `as' a wild ass's colt.

11:13 If thou set thy heart aright, And stretch out thy hands toward him;

11:14 If iniquity be in thy hand, put it far away, And let not unrighteousness dwell in thy tents.

11:15 Surely then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; Yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:

11:16 For thou shalt forget thy misery; Thou shalt remember it as waters that are passed away,

11:17 And `thy' life shall be clearer than the noonday; Though there be darkness, it shall be as the morning.

11:18 And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; Yea, thou shalt search `about thee', and shalt take thy rest in safety.

11:19 Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; Yea, many shall make suit unto thee.

11:20 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.
