Job 11:8-20 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

They are high as [a]the heavens, what can you do?
Deeper than [b]Sheol, what can you know?
“Its measure is longer than the earth
And broader than the sea.
10 “If He passes by or shuts up,
Or calls an assembly, who can restrain Him?
11 “For He knows false men,
And He sees iniquity [c]without investigating.
12 [d]An idiot will become intelligent
When the [e]foal of a wild donkey is born a man.

13 If you would direct your heart right
And spread out your hand to Him,
14 If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away,
And do not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
15 “Then, indeed, you could lift up your face without moral defect,
And you would be steadfast and not fear.
16 “For you would forget your trouble,
As waters that have passed by, you would remember it.
17 “Your [f]life would be [g]brighter than noonday;
Darkness would be like the morning.
18 “Then you would trust, because there is hope;
And you would look around and rest securely.
19 “You would lie down and none would disturb you,
And many would entreat your [h]favor.
20 “But the eyes of the wicked will fail,
And [i]there will be no escape for them;
And their hope is [j]to breathe their last.”
