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 justified?
أَصَلَفُكَ يُفْحِمُ ٱلنَّاسَ، أَمْ تَلِخُّ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُخْزِيكَ؟ ٣ 3
Should your lies make men hold their peace? and when you mock, shall no man make you ashamed?
إِذْ تَقُولُ: تَعْلِيمِي زَكِيٌّ، وَأَنَا بَارٌّ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ٤ 4
For you have said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in yours eyes.
وَلَكِنْ يَا لَيْتَ ٱللهَ يَتَكَلَّمُ وَيَفْتَحُ شَفَتَيْهِ مَعَكَ، ٥ 5
But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against you;
وَيُعْلِنُ لَكَ خَفِيَّاتِ ٱلْحِكْمَةِ! إِنَّهَا مُضَاعَفَةُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، فَتَعْلَمَ أَنَّ ٱللهَ يُغْرِمُكَ بِأَقَلَّ مِنْ إِثْمِكَ. ٦ 6
And that he would show you the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacts of you less than yours iniquity deserves.
«أَإِلَى عُمْقِ ٱللهِ تَتَّصِلُ، أَمْ إِلَى نِهَايَةِ ٱلْقَدِيرِ تَنْتَهِي؟ ٧ 7
Can you by searching find out God? can you find out the Almighty unto perfection?
هُوَ أَعْلَى مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ، فَمَاذَا عَسَاكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ؟ أَعْمَقُ مِنَ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ، فَمَاذَا تَدْرِي؟ (Sheol h7585) ٨ 8
It is as high as heaven; what can you do? deeper than hell; what can you 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 cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?
لِأَنَّهُ هُوَ يَعْلَمُ أُنَاسَ ٱلسُّوءِ، وَيُبْصِرُ ٱلْإِثْمَ، فَهَلْ لَا يَنْتَبِهُ؟ ١١ 11
For he knows vain men: he sees wickedness also; will he not then consider it?
أَمَّا ٱلرَّجُلُ فَفَارِغٌ عَدِيمُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، وَكَجَحْشِ ٱلْفَرَا يُولَدُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ. ١٢ 12
For vain men would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.
«إِنْ أَعْدَدْتَ أَنْتَ قَلْبَكَ، وَبَسَطْتَ إِلَيْهِ يَدَيْكَ. ١٣ 13
If you prepare yours heart, and stretch out yours hands toward him;
إِنْ أَبْعَدْتَ ٱلْإِثْمَ ٱلَّذِي فِي يَدِكَ، وَلَا يَسْكُنُ ٱلظُّلْمُ فِي خَيْمَتِكَ، ١٤ 14
If iniquity be in yours hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in your tabernacles.
حِينَئِذٍ تَرْفَعُ وَجْهَكَ بِلَا عَيْبٍ، وَتَكُونُ ثَابِتًا وَلَا تَخَافُ. ١٥ 15
For then shall you lift up your face without spot; yea, you shall be steadfast, and shall not fear:
لِأَنَّكَ تَنْسَى ٱلْمَشَقَّةَ. كَمِيَاهٍ عَبَرَتْ تَذْكُرُهَا. ١٦ 16
Because you shall forget your misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:
وَفَوْقَ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ يَقُومُ حَظُّكَ. ٱلظَّلَامُ يَتَحَوَّلُ صَبَاحًا. ١٧ 17
And yours age shall be clearer than the noonday: you shall shine forth, you shall be as the morning.
وَتَطْمَئِنُّ لِأَنَّهُ يُوجَدُ رَجَاءٌ. تَتَجَسَّسُ حَوْلَكَ وَتَضْطَجِعُ آمِنًا. ١٨ 18
And you shall be secure, because there is hope; yea, you shall dig about you, and you shall take your rest in safety.
وَتَرْبِضُ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُزْعِجُ، وَيَتَضَرَّعُ إِلَى وَجْهِكَ كَثِيرُونَ. ١٩ 19
Also you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto you.
أَمَّا عُيُونُ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ فَتَتْلَفُ، وَمَنَاصُهُمْ يَبِيدُ، وَرَجَاؤُهُمْ تَسْلِيمُ ٱلنَّفْسِ». ٢٠ 20
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the spirit.
