Job chapter 11

English Standard Version

2“Should a multitude of words go unanswered, and a man full of talk be judged right? 3Should your babble silence men, and when you mock, shall no one shame you? 4For you say, ‘My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in God’s eyes.’ 5But oh, that God would speak and open his lips to you, 6and that he would tell you the secrets of wisdom! For he is manifold in understanding. Know then that God exacts of you less than your guilt deserves. 7“Can you find out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limit of the Almighty? 8It is higher than heaven—what can you do? Deeper than Sheol—what can you know? 9Its measure is longer than the earth and broader than the sea. 10If he passes through and imprisons and summons the court, who can turn him back? 11For he knows worthless men; when he sees iniquity, will he not consider it? 12But a stupid man will get understanding when a wild donkey’s colt is born a man! 13“If you prepare your heart, you will stretch out your hands toward him. 14If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away, and let not injustice dwell in your tents. 15Surely then you will lift up your face without blemish; you will be secure and will not fear. 16You will forget your misery; you will remember it as waters that have passed away. 17And your life will be brighter than the noonday; its darkness will be like the morning. 18And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security. 19You will lie down, and none will make you afraid; many will court your favor. 20But the eyes of the wicked will fail; all way of escape will be lost to them, and their hope is to breathe their last.”
New International Version

New American Standard Bible

2'Shall a multitude of words go unanswered, And a talkative man be acquitted? 3Shall your boasts silence people? And will you scoff, and no one rebuke? 4For you have said, ‘My teaching is pure, And I am innocent in your eyes.’ 5But if only God would speak, And open His lips against you, 6And show you the secrets of wisdom! For sound wisdom has two sides. Know then that God forgets part of your guilt. 7'Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty? 8 They are as high as the heavens; what can you do? Deeper than Sheol; what can you know? 9Its measurement is longer than the earth And broader than the sea. 10If He passes by or apprehends people, Or calls an assembly, who can restrain Him? 11For He knows false people, And He sees injustice without investigating. 12 An idiot will become intelligent When a wild donkey is born a human. 13'If you would direct your heart rightly And spread out your hands to Him, 14If wrongdoing is in your hand, put it far away, And do not let malice dwell in your tents; 15Then, indeed, you could lift up your face without moral blemish, And you would be firmly established and not fear. 16For you would forget your trouble; Like waters that have passed by, you would remember it. 17Your life would be brighter than noonday; Darkness would be like the morning. 18Then you would trust, because there is hope; And you would look around and rest securely. 19You would lie down and none would disturb you, And many would flatter you. 20But the eyes of the wicked will fail, And there will be no escape for them; And their hope is to breathe their last.'
