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 thy falsehoods make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
إِذْ تَقُولُ: تَعْلِيمِي زَكِيٌّ، وَأَنَا بَارٌّ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ٤ 4
For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thy 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 show thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thy iniquity deserveth.
«أَإِلَى عُمْقِ ٱللهِ تَتَّصِلُ، أَمْ إِلَى نِهَايَةِ ٱلْقَدِيرِ تَنْتَهِي؟ ٧ 7
Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty to 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 canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? (Sheol h7585)
أَطْوَلُ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ طُولُهُ، وَأَعْرَضُ مِنَ ٱلْبَحْرِ. ٩ 9
The measure of it is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
إِنْ بَطَشَ أَوْ أَغْلَقَ أَوْ جَمَّعَ، فَمَنْ يَرُدُّهُ؟ ١٠ 10
If he shall 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 knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it?
أَمَّا ٱلرَّجُلُ فَفَارِغٌ عَدِيمُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، وَكَجَحْشِ ٱلْفَرَا يُولَدُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ. ١٢ 12
For vain man would be wise, though man is born like a wild ass's colt.
«إِنْ أَعْدَدْتَ أَنْتَ قَلْبَكَ، وَبَسَطْتَ إِلَيْهِ يَدَيْكَ. ١٣ 13
If thou preparest thy heart, and stretchest out thy hands towards him;
إِنْ أَبْعَدْتَ ٱلْإِثْمَ ٱلَّذِي فِي يَدِكَ، وَلَا يَسْكُنُ ٱلظُّلْمُ فِي خَيْمَتِكَ، ١٤ 14
If iniquity is in thy hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
حِينَئِذٍ تَرْفَعُ وَجْهَكَ بِلَا عَيْبٍ، وَتَكُونُ ثَابِتًا وَلَا تَخَافُ. ١٥ 15
For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yes, thou shalt be steadfast, and shalt not fear:
لِأَنَّكَ تَنْسَى ٱلْمَشَقَّةَ. كَمِيَاهٍ عَبَرَتْ تَذْكُرُهَا. ١٦ 16
Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:
وَفَوْقَ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ يَقُومُ حَظُّكَ. ٱلظَّلَامُ يَتَحَوَّلُ صَبَاحًا. ١٧ 17
And thy age shall be clearer than the noon-day: thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
وَتَطْمَئِنُّ لِأَنَّهُ يُوجَدُ رَجَاءٌ. تَتَجَسَّسُ حَوْلَكَ وَتَضْطَجِعُ آمِنًا. ١٨ 18
And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yes, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou 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; yes, many shall make suit to thee.
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 expiration of the breath.
