"What counsel you have given to one without wisdom! What helpful insight you have abundantly provided!
King James Bible
How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?
Darby Bible Translation

The word rendered "plentifully" (לרב larôb) means "for multitude," or abundantly, and the sense here is, that Bildad had made extraordinary pretensions to wisdom, and that this was the result. This short, irrelevant speech was all; a speech that communicated nothing new, and that met none of the real difficulties of the case.
