018:011:001
Then answered Zophar the Naamathite,
and said,


018:011:002
Should not the multitude of words be answered?
and should a man full of talk be justified?


018:011:003
Should thy lies make men hold their peace?
and when thou mockest,
shall no man make thee ashamed?


018:011:004
For thou hast said,
My doctrine is pure,
and I am clean in thine eyes.


018:011:005
But oh that God would speak,
and open his lips against thee;


018:011:006
And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom,
that they are double to that which is!
Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.


018:011:007
Canst thou by searching find out God?
canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?


018:011:008
It is as high as heaven;
what canst thou do?
deeper than hell;
what canst thou know?


018:011:009
The measure thereof is longer than the earth,
and broader than the sea.


018:011:010
If he cut off,
and shut up,
or gather together,
then who can hinder him?


018:011:011
For he knoweth vain men:
he seeth wickedness also;
will he not then consider it?


018:011:012
For vain men would be wise,
though man be born like a wild ass's colt.


018:011:013
If thou prepare thine heart,
and stretch out thine hands toward him;


018:011:014
If iniquity be in thine hand,
put it far away,
and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.


018:011:015
For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot;
yea,
thou shalt be stedfast,
and shalt not fear:


018:011:016
Because thou shalt forget thy misery,
and remember it as waters that pass away:


018:011:017
And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday:
thou shalt shine forth,
thou shalt be as the morning.


018:011:018
And thou shalt be secure,
because there is hope;
yea,
thou shalt dig about thee,
and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.


018:011:019
Also thou shalt lie down,
and none shall make thee afraid;
yea,
many shall make suit unto thee.


018:011:020
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail,
and they shall not escape,
and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.
