Zophar Rebukes Job
1Then Zophar the Naamathite answered,
2“Shall a multitude of words go unanswered,
3“Shall your boasts silence men?
4“For you have said, ‘My teaching is pure,
5“But would that God might speak,
6And show you the secrets of wisdom!
7“Can you discover the depths of God?
8“They are high as the heavens, what can you do?
9“Its measure is longer than the earth,
10“If He passes by or shuts up,
11“For He knows false men,
12“And an idiot will become intelligent
13“If you would direct your heart right,
14If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away,
15“Then, indeed, you could lift up your face without moral defect,
16“For you would forget your trouble,
17“And your life would be brighter than noonday;
18“Then you would trust, because there is hope;
19“You would lie down and none would disturb you,
20“But the eyes of the wicked will fail,
