ايوب 11

فَأَجَابَ صُوفَرُ ٱلنَّعْمَاتِيُّ وَقَالَ: ١ 1
Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said:
«أَكَثْرَةُ ٱلْكَلَامِ لَا يُجَاوَبُ، أَمْ رَجُلٌ مِهْذَارٌ يَتَبَرَّرُ؟ ٢ 2
Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be accounted right?
أَصَلَفُكَ يُفْحِمُ ٱلنَّاسَ، أَمْ تَلِخُّ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُخْزِيكَ؟ ٣ 3
Thy boastings have made men hold their peace, and thou hast mocked, with none to make thee ashamed;
إِذْ تَقُولُ: تَعْلِيمِي زَكِيٌّ، وَأَنَا بَارٌّ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ٤ 4
And thou hast said: 'My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in Thine eyes.'
وَلَكِنْ يَا لَيْتَ ٱللهَ يَتَكَلَّمُ وَيَفْتَحُ شَفَتَيْهِ مَعَكَ، ٥ 5
But oh that God would speak, and open His lips against thee;
وَيُعْلِنُ لَكَ خَفِيَّاتِ ٱلْحِكْمَةِ! إِنَّهَا مُضَاعَفَةُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، فَتَعْلَمَ أَنَّ ٱللهَ يُغْرِمُكَ بِأَقَلَّ مِنْ إِثْمِكَ. ٦ 6
And that He would tell thee the secrets of wisdom, that sound wisdom is manifold! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
«أَإِلَى عُمْقِ ٱللهِ تَتَّصِلُ، أَمْ إِلَى نِهَايَةِ ٱلْقَدِيرِ تَنْتَهِي؟ ٧ 7
Canst thou find out the deep things of God? Canst thou attain unto the purpose of the Almighty?
هُوَ أَعْلَى مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ، فَمَاذَا عَسَاكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ؟ أَعْمَقُ مِنَ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ، فَمَاذَا تَدْرِي؟ (Sheol h7585) ٨ 8
It is high as heaven; what canst thou do? Deeper than the nether-world; what canst thou know? (Sheol h7585)
أَطْوَلُ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ طُولُهُ، وَأَعْرَضُ مِنَ ٱلْبَحْرِ. ٩ 9
The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
إِنْ بَطَشَ أَوْ أَغْلَقَ أَوْ جَمَّعَ، فَمَنْ يَرُدُّهُ؟ ١٠ 10
If He pass by, and shut up, or gather in, then who can hinder Him?
لِأَنَّهُ هُوَ يَعْلَمُ أُنَاسَ ٱلسُّوءِ، وَيُبْصِرُ ٱلْإِثْمَ، فَهَلْ لَا يَنْتَبِهُ؟ ١١ 11
For He knoweth base men; and when He seeth iniquity, will He not then consider it?
أَمَّا ٱلرَّجُلُ فَفَارِغٌ عَدِيمُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، وَكَجَحْشِ ٱلْفَرَا يُولَدُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ. ١٢ 12
But an empty man will get understanding, when a wild ass's colt is born a man.
«إِنْ أَعْدَدْتَ أَنْتَ قَلْبَكَ، وَبَسَطْتَ إِلَيْهِ يَدَيْكَ. ١٣ 13
If thou set thy heart aright, and stretch out thy hands toward Him —
إِنْ أَبْعَدْتَ ٱلْإِثْمَ ٱلَّذِي فِي يَدِكَ، وَلَا يَسْكُنُ ٱلظُّلْمُ فِي خَيْمَتِكَ، ١٤ 14
If iniquity be in thy hand, put it far away, and let not unrighteousness dwell in thy tents —
حِينَئِذٍ تَرْفَعُ وَجْهَكَ بِلَا عَيْبٍ، وَتَكُونُ ثَابِتًا وَلَا تَخَافُ. ١٥ 15
Surely then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear;
لِأَنَّكَ تَنْسَى ٱلْمَشَقَّةَ. كَمِيَاهٍ عَبَرَتْ تَذْكُرُهَا. ١٦ 16
For thou shalt forget thy misery; thou shalt remember it as waters that are passed away;
وَفَوْقَ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ يَقُومُ حَظُّكَ. ٱلظَّلَامُ يَتَحَوَّلُ صَبَاحًا. ١٧ 17
And thy life shall be clearer than the noonday; though there be darkness, it shall be as the morning.
وَتَطْمَئِنُّ لِأَنَّهُ يُوجَدُ رَجَاءٌ. تَتَجَسَّسُ حَوْلَكَ وَتَضْطَجِعُ آمِنًا. ١٨ 18
And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt look about thee, and shalt take thy rest in safety.
وَتَرْبِضُ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُزْعِجُ، وَيَتَضَرَّعُ إِلَى وَجْهِكَ كَثِيرُونَ. ١٩ 19
Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.
أَمَّا عُيُونُ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ فَتَتْلَفُ، وَمَنَاصُهُمْ يَبِيدُ، وَرَجَاؤُهُمْ تَسْلِيمُ ٱلنَّفْسِ». ٢٠ 20
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall have no way to flee, and their hope shall be the drooping of the soul.
