Then answeredH6030 ZopharH6691 the Naamathite,H5284 and said,H559
Should not the multitudeH7230 of wordsH1697 be answered?H6030 and should a manH376 full of talkH8193 be justified?H6663
Should your liesH907 make menH4962 holdH2790 their peace?H2790 and when you mock,H3932 shall noH369 man make you ashamed?H3637
For you have said,H559 My doctrineH3948 is pure,H2134 and I am cleanH1249 in your eyes.H5869
But oh that GodH433 would speak,H1696 and openH6605 his lipsH8193 againstH5973 you;
And that he would showH5046 you the secretsH8587 of wisdom,H2451 that they are doubleH3718 to that which is! KnowH3045 therefore that GodH433 exactsH5382 of you less than your iniquityH5771 deserves.
Can you by searchingH2714 findH4672 out God?H433 can you findH4672 out the AlmightyH7706 to perfection?H8503
It is as highH1363 as heaven;H8064 whatH4100 can you do?H6466 deeperH6013 than hell;H7585 whatH4100 can you know?H3045
The measureH4055 thereof is longerH752 thanH4480 the earth,H776 and broaderH7342 thanH4480 the sea.H3220
IfH518 he cutH2498 off, and shutH5462 up, or gatherH6950 together, then whoH4310 can hinderH7725 him?
For he knowsH3045 vainH7723 men:H4962 he seesH7200 wickednessH205 also; will he not then considerH995 it?
For vainH5014 menH376 would be wise,H3823 though manH120 be bornH3205 like a wildH6501 ass'sH6501 colt.H168
IfH518 you prepareH3559 your heart,H3820 and stretchH6566 out your handsH3709 towardH413 him;
IfH518 iniquityH205 be in your hand,H3027 put it farH7350 away, and let not wickednessH5766 dwellH7931 in your tabernacles.H168
For thenH227 shall you liftH5375 up your faceH6440 without spot;H3971 yes, you shall be steadfast,H3332 and shall not fear:H3372
BecauseH3588 you shall forgetH7911 your misery,H5999 and rememberH2142 it as watersH4325 that passH5674 away:
And your ageH2465 shall be clearerH6965 than the noonday:H6672 you shall shineH5774 forth, you shall be as the morning.H1242
And you shall be secure,H982 becauseH3588 there is hope;H8615 yes, you shall digH2658 aboutH5439 you, and you shall takeH7901 your restH7901 in safety.H983
Also you shall lieH7257 down,H7257 and noneH369 shall make you afraid;H2729 yes, manyH7227 shall make suitH2470 to you.
But the eyesH5869 of the wickedH7563 shall fail,H3615 and they shall not escape,H4498 H6 and their hopeH8615 shall be as the givingH4646 up of the ghost.H5315
