ايوب 11

فَأَجَابَ صُوفَرُ ٱلنَّعْمَاتِيُّ وَقَالَ: ١ 1
Then Zophar, the Naamathite, answered,
«أَكَثْرَةُ ٱلْكَلَامِ لَا يُجَاوَبُ، أَمْ رَجُلٌ مِهْذَارٌ يَتَبَرَّرُ؟ ٢ 2
“Shouldn’t the multitude of words be answered? Should a man full of talk be justified?
أَصَلَفُكَ يُفْحِمُ ٱلنَّاسَ، أَمْ تَلِخُّ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُخْزِيكَ؟ ٣ 3
Should your boastings make men hold their peace? When you mock, will no man make you ashamed?
إِذْ تَقُولُ: تَعْلِيمِي زَكِيٌّ، وَأَنَا بَارٌّ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ٤ 4
For you say, ‘My doctrine is pure. I am clean in your 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
that he would show you the secrets of wisdom! For true wisdom has two sides. Know therefore that God exacts of you less than your iniquity deserves.
«أَإِلَى عُمْقِ ٱللهِ تَتَّصِلُ، أَمْ إِلَى نِهَايَةِ ٱلْقَدِيرِ تَنْتَهِي؟ ٧ 7
“Can you fathom the mystery of God? Or can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
هُوَ أَعْلَى مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ، فَمَاذَا عَسَاكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ؟ أَعْمَقُ مِنَ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ، فَمَاذَا تَدْرِي؟ (Sheol h7585) ٨ 8
They are high as heaven. What can you do? They are deeper than Sheol. What can you know? (Sheol h7585)
أَطْوَلُ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ طُولُهُ، وَأَعْرَضُ مِنَ ٱلْبَحْرِ. ٩ 9
Its measure is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
إِنْ بَطَشَ أَوْ أَغْلَقَ أَوْ جَمَّعَ، فَمَنْ يَرُدُّهُ؟ ١٠ 10
If he passes by, or confines, or convenes a court, then who can oppose him?
لِأَنَّهُ هُوَ يَعْلَمُ أُنَاسَ ٱلسُّوءِ، وَيُبْصِرُ ٱلْإِثْمَ، فَهَلْ لَا يَنْتَبِهُ؟ ١١ 11
For he knows false men. He sees iniquity also, even though he doesn’t consider it.
أَمَّا ٱلرَّجُلُ فَفَارِغٌ عَدِيمُ ٱلْفَهْمِ، وَكَجَحْشِ ٱلْفَرَا يُولَدُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ. ١٢ 12
An empty-headed man becomes wise when a man is born as a wild donkey’s colt.
«إِنْ أَعْدَدْتَ أَنْتَ قَلْبَكَ، وَبَسَطْتَ إِلَيْهِ يَدَيْكَ. ١٣ 13
“If you set your heart aright, stretch out your hands toward him.
إِنْ أَبْعَدْتَ ٱلْإِثْمَ ٱلَّذِي فِي يَدِكَ، وَلَا يَسْكُنُ ٱلظُّلْمُ فِي خَيْمَتِكَ، ١٤ 14
If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away. Don’t let unrighteousness dwell in your tents.
حِينَئِذٍ تَرْفَعُ وَجْهَكَ بِلَا عَيْبٍ، وَتَكُونُ ثَابِتًا وَلَا تَخَافُ. ١٥ 15
Surely then you will lift up your face without spot. Yes, you will be steadfast, and will not fear,
لِأَنَّكَ تَنْسَى ٱلْمَشَقَّةَ. كَمِيَاهٍ عَبَرَتْ تَذْكُرُهَا. ١٦ 16
for you will forget your misery. You will remember it like waters that have passed away.
وَفَوْقَ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ يَقُومُ حَظُّكَ. ٱلظَّلَامُ يَتَحَوَّلُ صَبَاحًا. ١٧ 17
Life will be clearer than the noonday. Though there is darkness, it will be as the morning.
وَتَطْمَئِنُّ لِأَنَّهُ يُوجَدُ رَجَاءٌ. تَتَجَسَّسُ حَوْلَكَ وَتَضْطَجِعُ آمِنًا. ١٨ 18
You will be secure, because there is hope. Yes, you will search, and will take your rest in safety.
وَتَرْبِضُ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُزْعِجُ، وَيَتَضَرَّعُ إِلَى وَجْهِكَ كَثِيرُونَ. ١٩ 19
Also you will lie down, and no one will make you afraid. Yes, many will court your favor.
أَمَّا عُيُونُ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ فَتَتْلَفُ، وَمَنَاصُهُمْ يَبِيدُ، وَرَجَاؤُهُمْ تَسْلِيمُ ٱلنَّفْسِ». ٢٠ 20
But the eyes of the wicked will fail. They will have no way to flee. Their hope will be the giving up of the spirit.”
