1Then Zophar the Naamathite replied: 1וַ֭יַּעַן צֹפַ֥ר הַֽנַּעֲמָתִ֗י וַיֹּאמַֽר׃
2“Should this stream of words go unanswered and such a speaker be vindicated? 2הֲרֹ֣ב דְּ֭בָרִים לֹ֣א יֵעָנֶ֑ה וְאִם־ אִ֖ישׁ שְׂפָתַ֣יִם יִצְדָּֽק׃
3Should your babbling put others to silence? Will you scoff without rebuke? 3בַּ֭דֶּיךָ מְתִ֣ים יַחֲרִ֑ישׁו‪‬ וַ֝תִּלְעַ֗ג וְאֵ֣ין מַכְלִֽם׃
4You have said, ‘My doctrine [is] sound, and I am pure in Your sight.’ 4וַ֭תֹּאמֶר זַ֣ךְ לִקְחִ֑י וּ֝בַ֗ר הָיִ֥יתִי בְעֵינֶֽיךָ׃
5But if only God would speak and open His lips against you, 5וְֽאוּלָ֗ם מִֽי־ יִתֵּ֣ן אֱל֣וֹהַּ דַּבֵּ֑ר וְיִפְתַּ֖ח שְׂפָתָ֣יו עִמָּֽךְ׃
6and disclose to you the secrets of wisdom, for true wisdom has two sides. Know then that God exacts from you [less] than your iniquity [deserves]. 6וְיַגֶּד־ לְךָ֨ ׀ תַּֽעֲלֻמ֣וֹת חָכְמָה֮ כִּֽי־ כִפְלַ֪יִם לְֽת֫וּשִׁיָּ֥ה וְדַ֡ע כִּֽי־ יַשֶּׁ֥ה לְךָ֥ אֱ֝ל֗וֹהַ מֵעֲוֺנֶֽךָ׃
7Can you fathom the deep things of God or discover the limits of the Almighty? 7הַחֵ֣קֶר אֱל֣וֹהַ תִּמְצָ֑א אִ֤ם עַד־ תַּכְלִ֖ית שַׁדַּ֣י תִּמְצָֽא׃
8They are higher than the heavens— what can you do? They are deeper than Sheol— what can you know? 8גָּבְהֵ֣י שָׁ֭מַיִם מַה־ תִּפְעָ֑ל עֲמֻקָּ֥ה מִ֝שְּׁא֗וֹל מַה־ תֵּדָֽע׃
9Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea. 9אֲרֻכָּ֣ה מֵאֶ֣רֶץ מִדָּ֑הּ וּ֝רְחָבָ֗ה מִנִּי־ יָֽם׃
10If He comes along to imprison you, or convenes a court, who can hinder Him? 10אִם־ יַחֲלֹ֥ף וְיַסְגִּ֑יר וְ֝יַקְהִ֗יל וּמִ֣י יְשִׁיבֶֽנּוּ׃
11Surely He knows the deceit of men. If He sees iniquity, does He not take note? 11כִּי־ ה֭וּא יָדַ֣ע מְתֵי־ שָׁ֑וְא וַיַּרְא־ אָ֝֗וֶן וְלֹ֣א יִתְבּוֹנָֽן׃
12But a witless man can no more become wise than the colt of a wild donkey can be born a man! 12וְאִ֣ישׁ נָ֭בוּב יִלָּבֵ֑ב וְעַ֥יִר פֶּ֝֗רֶא אָדָ֥ם יִוָּלֵֽד׃
13As for you, if you direct your heart and lift up your hands to Him, 13אִם־ אַ֭תָּ֗ה‪‬ הֲכִינ֣וֹתָ לִבֶּ֑ךָ וּפָרַשְׂתָּ֖ אֵלָ֣יו כַּפֶּֽךָ׃
14if you put away the iniquity in your hand, and allow no injustice to dwell in your tents, 14אִם־ אָ֣וֶן בְּ֭יָדְךָ הַרְחִיקֵ֑הוּ וְאַל־ תַּשְׁכֵּ֖ן בְּאֹהָלֶ֣יךָ עַוְלָֽה׃
15then indeed you will lift up your face without shame; you will stand firm and unafraid. 15כִּי־ אָ֤ז ׀ תִּשָּׂ֣א פָנֶ֣יךָ מִמּ֑וּם וְהָיִ֥יתָ מֻ֝צָ֗ק וְלֹ֣א תִירָֽא׃
16For you will forget [your] misery, recalling it only as waters gone by. 16כִּי־ אַ֭תָּה עָמָ֣ל תִּשְׁכָּ֑ח כְּמַ֖יִם עָבְר֣וּ תִזְכֹּֽר׃
17Your life will be brighter than noonday; its darkness will be like the morning. 17וּֽ֭מִצָּהֳרַיִם יָק֣וּם חָ֑לֶד תָּ֝עֻ֗פָה כַּבֹּ֥קֶר תִּהְיֶֽה׃
18You will be secure, because there is hope, and you will look around and lie down in safety. 18וּֽ֭בָטַחְתָּ כִּי־ יֵ֣שׁ תִּקְוָ֑ה וְ֝חָפַרְתָּ֗ לָבֶ֥טַח תִּשְׁכָּֽב׃
19You will lie down without fear, and many will court your favor. 19וְֽ֭רָבַצְתָּ וְאֵ֣ין מַחֲרִ֑יד וְחִלּ֖וּ פָנֶ֣יךָ רַבִּֽים׃
20But the eyes of the wicked will fail, their escape route will be cut off, and they will hope for their last breath.” 20וְעֵינֵ֥י רְשָׁעִ֗ים תִּ֫כְלֶ֥ינָה וּ֭מָנוֹס אָבַ֣ד מִנְהֶ֑ם וְ֝תִקְוָתָ֗ם מַֽפַּח־ נָֽפֶשׁ׃ פ
