The Darby Bible
Job, Chapter 11

   1: And Zophar the Naamathite answered and said,
   2: Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man of much talk be justified?
   3: Should thy fictions make men hold their peace? and shouldest thou mock, and no one make [thee] ashamed?
   4: For thou sayest, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.
   5: But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee;
   6: And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, how that they are the double of what is realised; and know that God passeth by [much] of thine iniquity!
   7: Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty to perfection?
   8: [It is as] the heights of heaven; what wilt thou do? deeper than Sheol; what canst thou know?
   9: The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
   10: If he pass by, and shut up, and call to judgment, who can hinder him?
   11: For he knoweth vain men, and seeth wickedness when [man] doth not consider it;
   12: Yet a senseless man will make bold, though man be born [like] the foal of a wild ass.
   13: If thou prepare thy heart and stretch out thy hands toward him,
   14: If thou put far away the iniquity which is in thy hand, and let not wrong dwell in thy tents;
   15: Surely then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot, and thou shalt be stedfast and shalt not fear:
   16: For thou shalt forget misery; as waters that are passed away shalt thou remember it;
   17: And life shall arise brighter than noonday; though thou be enshrouded in darkness, thou shalt be as the morning,
   18: And thou shalt have confidence, because there shall be hope; and having searched about [thee], thou shalt take rest in safety.
   19: Yea, thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; and many shall seek thy favour.
   20: But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and [all] refuge shall vanish from them, and their hope [shall be] the breathing out of life.
