KJV JOB11 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB10.htm JOB12.htm
11:1 Then answered [H6030] Zophar [H6691] the Naamathite [H5284] , and said [H559] ,
11:2 Should not the multitude [H7230] of words [H1697] be answered [H6030] ? and should a man [H376] full of talk [H8193] be justified [H6663] ?(full: Heb. of lips)
11:3 Should thy lies [H907] make [H2790] men [H4962] hold their peace [H2790] ? and when thou mockest [H3932] , shall no man make thee ashamed [H3637] ?(lies: or, devices)
11:4 For thou hast said [H559] , My doctrine [H3948] [is] pure [H2134] , and I am clean [H1249] in thine eyes [H5869] .
11:5 But [H199] oh that [H5414] God [H433] would speak [H1696] , and open [H6605] his lips [H8193] against thee;
11:6 And that he would shew [H5046] thee the secrets [H8587] of wisdom [H2451] , that [they are] double [H3718] to that which is [H8454] ! Know [H3045] therefore that God [H433] exacteth [H5382] of thee [less] than thine iniquity [H5771] [deserveth].
11:7 Canst thou by searching [H2714] find out [H4672] God [H433] ? canst thou find [H4672] out the Almighty [H7706] unto perfection [H8503] ?
11:8 [It is] as high [H1363] as heaven [H8064] ; what canst thou do [H6466] ? deeper [H6013] than hell [H7585] ; what canst thou know [H3045] ?(as high: Heb. the heights of heaven)
11:9 The measure [H4055] thereof [is] longer [H752] than the earth [H776] , and broader [H7342] than the sea [H3220] .
11:10 If he cut off [H2498] , and shut up [H5462] , or gather together [H6950] , then who can hinder [H7725] him?(cut: or, make a change)(hinder: Heb. turn him away?)
11:11 For he knoweth [H3045] vain [H7723] men [H4962] : he seeth [H7200] wickedness [H205] also; will he not then consider [H995] [it]?
11:12 For vain [H5014] man [H376] would be wise [H3823] , though man [H120] be born [H3205] [like] a wild ass's [H6501] colt [H5895] .(vain: Heb. empty)
11:13 If thou prepare [H3559] thine heart [H3820] , and stretch [H6566] out thine hands [H3709] toward him;
11:14 If iniquity [H205] [be] in thine hand [H3027] , put it far away [H7368] , and let not wickedness [H5766] dwell [H7931] in thy tabernacles [H168] .
11:15 For then shalt thou lift up [H5375] thy face [H6440] without spot [H3971] ; yea, thou shalt be stedfast [H3332] , and shalt not fear [H3372] :
11:16 Because thou shalt forget [H7911] [thy] misery [H5999] , [and] remember [H2142] [it] as waters [H4325] [that] pass away [H5674] :
11:17 And [thine] age [H2465] shall be clearer [H6965] than the noonday [H6672] ; thou shalt shine forth [H5774] , thou shalt be as the morning [H1242] .(be clearer: Heb. shall arise above the noon-day)
11:18 And thou shalt be secure [H982] , because there is [H3426] hope [H8615] ; yea, thou shalt dig [H2658] [about thee, and] thou shalt take thy rest [H7901] in safety [H983] .
11:19 Also thou shalt lie down [H7257] , and none shall make [thee] afraid [H2729] ; yea, many [H7227] shall make suit [H2470] unto thee [H6440] .(make suit: Heb. intreat thy face)
11:20 But the eyes [H5869] of the wicked [H7563] shall fail [H3615] , and they shall not escape [H6] [H4498] , and their hope [H8615] [shall be as] the giving up [H4646] of the ghost [H5315] .(they shall: Heb. flight shall perish from them)(the giving: or, a puff of breath)
