11 Then answered aZophar the Naamathite, and said,
2 Should not bthe multitude of words be answered?
And should †a man full of talk be justified?
3 Should thy ||lies make men hold their peace?
And when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
And I am clean in thine eyes.
And open his lips against thee;
Know therefore that God gexacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
7 hCanst thou by searching find out God?
Canst thou find out the Almighty iunto perfection?
Deeper than hell; what canst thou know?
And broader than the sea.
Then †who can hinder him?
11 For he knoweth nvain men:
He seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it?
12 For †vain man would be wise,
13 If thou qprepare thine heart,
And rstretch out thine hands toward him;
And let not wickedness dwell in thy stabernacles.
15 For then shalt thou tlift up thy face without spot;
Yea, thou shalt be ustedfast, and shalt not fear:
16 Because thou shalt xforget thy misery,
And remember it as waters that pass away:
Thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
Yea, thou shalt adig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.
19 Also bthou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid;
Yea, many shall †make suit unto thee.
20 But cthe eyes of the wicked shall fail,
And †they shall not escape,
