ايوب 11

فَأَجَابَ صُوفَرُ ٱلنَّعْمَاتِيُّ وَقَالَ: ١ 1
Then Sophar the Minaean answered and said,
«أَكَثْرَةُ ٱلْكَلَامِ لَا يُجَاوَبُ، أَمْ رَجُلٌ مِهْذَارٌ يَتَبَرَّرُ؟ ٢ 2
He that speaks much, should also hear on the other side: or does the fluent speaker think himself to be righteous? blessed [is] the short lived offspring of woman.
أَصَلَفُكَ يُفْحِمُ ٱلنَّاسَ، أَمْ تَلِخُّ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُخْزِيكَ؟ ٣ 3
Be not a speaker of many words; for is there none to answer you?
إِذْ تَقُولُ: تَعْلِيمِي زَكِيٌّ، وَأَنَا بَارٌّ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ٤ 4
For say not, I am pure in my works, and blameless before him.
وَلَكِنْ يَا لَيْتَ ٱللهَ يَتَكَلَّمُ وَيَفْتَحُ شَفَتَيْهِ مَعَكَ، ٥ 5
But oh that the Lord would speak to you, and open his lips to you!
وَيُعْلِنُ لَكَ خَفِيَّاتِ ٱلْحِكْمَةِ! إِنَّهَا مُضَاعَفَةُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، فَتَعْلَمَ أَنَّ ٱللهَ يُغْرِمُكَ بِأَقَلَّ مِنْ إِثْمِكَ. ٦ 6
Then shall he declare to you the power of wisdom; for it shall be double of that which is with you: and then shall you know, that a just recompence of your sins has come to you from the Lord.
«أَإِلَى عُمْقِ ٱللهِ تَتَّصِلُ، أَمْ إِلَى نِهَايَةِ ٱلْقَدِيرِ تَنْتَهِي؟ ٧ 7
Will you find out the traces of the Lord? or have you come to the end [of that] which the Almighty has made?
هُوَ أَعْلَى مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ، فَمَاذَا عَسَاكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ؟ أَعْمَقُ مِنَ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ، فَمَاذَا تَدْرِي؟ (Sheol h7585) ٨ 8
Heaven [is] high; and what will you do? and there are deeper things than those in hell; what do you know? (Sheol h7585)
أَطْوَلُ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ طُولُهُ، وَأَعْرَضُ مِنَ ٱلْبَحْرِ. ٩ 9
Or longer than the measure of the earth, or the breadth of the sea.
إِنْ بَطَشَ أَوْ أَغْلَقَ أَوْ جَمَّعَ، فَمَنْ يَرُدُّهُ؟ ١٠ 10
And if he should overthrow all things, who will say to him, What have you done?
لِأَنَّهُ هُوَ يَعْلَمُ أُنَاسَ ٱلسُّوءِ، وَيُبْصِرُ ٱلْإِثْمَ، فَهَلْ لَا يَنْتَبِهُ؟ ١١ 11
For he knows the works of transgressors; and when he sees wickedness, he will not overlook [it].
أَمَّا ٱلرَّجُلُ فَفَارِغٌ عَدِيمُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، وَكَجَحْشِ ٱلْفَرَا يُولَدُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ. ١٢ 12
But man vainly buoys himself up with words; and a mortal born of woman [is] like an ass in the desert.
«إِنْ أَعْدَدْتَ أَنْتَ قَلْبَكَ، وَبَسَطْتَ إِلَيْهِ يَدَيْكَ. ١٣ 13
For if you have made your heart pure, and lift up [your] hands towards him;
إِنْ أَبْعَدْتَ ٱلْإِثْمَ ٱلَّذِي فِي يَدِكَ، وَلَا يَسْكُنُ ٱلظُّلْمُ فِي خَيْمَتِكَ، ١٤ 14
if there is any iniquity in your hands, put if far from you, and let not unrighteousness lodge in your habitation.
حِينَئِذٍ تَرْفَعُ وَجْهَكَ بِلَا عَيْبٍ، وَتَكُونُ ثَابِتًا وَلَا تَخَافُ. ١٥ 15
For thus shall your countenance shine again, as pure water; and you shall dive yourself of uncleanness, and shall not fear.
لِأَنَّكَ تَنْسَى ٱلْمَشَقَّةَ. كَمِيَاهٍ عَبَرَتْ تَذْكُرُهَا. ١٦ 16
And you shall forget trouble, as a wave that has passed by; and you shall not be scared.
وَفَوْقَ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ يَقُومُ حَظُّكَ. ٱلظَّلَامُ يَتَحَوَّلُ صَبَاحًا. ١٧ 17
And your prayer [shall be] as the morning star, and life shall arise to you [as] from the noonday.
وَتَطْمَئِنُّ لِأَنَّهُ يُوجَدُ رَجَاءٌ. تَتَجَسَّسُ حَوْلَكَ وَتَضْطَجِعُ آمِنًا. ١٨ 18
And you shall be confident, because you have hope; and peace shall dawn to you from out of anxiety and care.
وَتَرْبِضُ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُزْعِجُ، وَيَتَضَرَّعُ إِلَى وَجْهِكَ كَثِيرُونَ. ١٩ 19
For you shall be at ease, and there shall be no one to fight against you; and many shall charge, and make supplication to you.
أَمَّا عُيُونُ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ فَتَتْلَفُ، وَمَنَاصُهُمْ يَبِيدُ، وَرَجَاؤُهُمْ تَسْلِيمُ ٱلنَّفْسِ». ٢٠ 20
But safety shall fail them; for their hope is destruction, and the eyes of the ungodly shall waste away.
