Zophar’s First Response to Job

11Then Zophar the Naamathite replied to Job.H6030H6691H5284H559 2"Shouldn't someone answer this torrent of words? Is a person proved innocent just by a lot of talking?H7230H1697H6030H376H8193H6663 3Should I remain silent while you babble on? When you mock God, shouldn't someone make you ashamed?H907H2790H4962H2790H3932H3637 4You claim, 'My beliefs are pure,' and 'I am clean in the sight of God.'H559H3948H2134H1249H5869 5If only God would speak; if only he would tell you what he thinks!H199H5414H433H1696H6605H8193 6If only he would tell you the secrets of wisdom, for true wisdom is not a simple matter. Listen! God is doubtless punishing you far less than you deserve!H5046H8587H2451H3718H8454H3045H433H5382H5771 7"Can you solve the mysteries of God? Can you discover everything about the Almighty?H2714H4672H433H4672H7706H8503 8Such knowledge is higher than the heavens—and who are you? It is deeper than the underworld—what do you know?H1363H8064H6466H6013H7585H3045 9It is broader than the earth and wider than the sea.H4055H752H776H7342H3220 10If God comes and puts a person in prison or calls the court to order, who can stop him?H2498H5462H6950H7725 11For he knows those who are false, and he takes note of all their sins.H3045H7723H4962H7200H205H995 12An empty-headed person won't become wise any more than a wild donkey can bear a human child.H5014H376H3823H120H3205H6501H5895 13"If only you would prepare your heart and lift up your hands to him in prayer!H3559H3820H6566H3709 14Get rid of your sins, and leave all iniquity behind you.H205H3027H7368H5766H7931H168 15Then your face will brighten with innocence. You will be strong and free of fear.H5375H6440H3971H3332H3372 16You will forget your misery; it will be like water flowing away.H7911H5999H2142H4325H5674 17Your life will be brighter than the noonday. Even darkness will be as bright as morning.H2465H6965H6672H5774H1242 18Having hope will give you courage. You will be protected and will rest in safety.H982H3426H8615H2658H7901H983 19You will lie down unafraid, and many will look to you for help.H7257H2729H7227H2470H6440 20But the wicked will be blinded. They will have no escape. Their only hope is death."H5869H7563H3615H6H4498H8615H4646H5315
