1: And Zophar the Naamathite answereth and saith: -- 2: Is a multitude of words not answered? And is a man of lips justified? 3: Thy devices make men keep silent, Thou scornest, and none is causing blushing! 4: And thou sayest, 'Pure [is] my discourse, And clean I have been in Thine eyes.' 5: And yet, O that God had spoken! And doth open His lips with thee. 6: And declare to thee secrets of wisdom, For counsel hath foldings. And know thou that God forgetteth for thee, [Some] of thine iniquity. 7: By searching dost thou find out God? Unto perfection find out the Mighty One? 8: Heights of the heavens! -- what dost thou? Deeper than Sheol! -- what knowest thou? 9: Longer than earth [is] its measure, And broader than the sea. 10: If He pass on, and shut up, and assemble, Who then dost reverse it? 11: For he hath known men of vanity, And He seeth iniquity, And one doth not consider [it]! 12: And empty man is bold, And the colt of a wild ass man is born. 13: If thou -- thou hast prepared thy heart, And hast spread out unto Him thy hands, 14: If iniquity [is] in thy hand, put it far off, And let not perverseness dwell in thy tents. 15: For then thou liftest up thy face from blemish, And thou hast been firm, and fearest not. 16: For thou dost forget misery, As waters passed away thou rememberest. 17: And above the noon doth age rise, Thou fliest -- as the morning thou art. 18: And thou hast trusted because their is hope, And searched -- in confidence thou liest down, 19: And thou hast rested, And none is causing trembling, And many have entreated thy face; 20: And the eyes of the wicked are consumed, And refuge hath perished from them, And their hope [is] a breathing out of soul!
