1 ὑπολαβὼν δὲ Σωφαρ ὁ Μιναῖος λέγει 2 ὁ τὰ πολλὰ λέγων καὶ ἀντακούσεται ἢ καὶ ὁ εὔλαλος οἴεται εἶναι δίκαιος εὐλογημένος γεννητὸς γυναικὸς ὀλιγόβιος 3 μὴ πολὺς ἐν ῥήμασιν γίνου οὐ γάρ ἐστιν ὁ ἀντικρινόμενός σοι 4 μὴ γὰρ λέγε ὅτι καθαρός εἰμι τοῖς ἔργοις καὶ ἄμεμπτος ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ 5 ἀλλὰ πῶς ἂν ὁ κύριος λαλήσαι πρὸς σέ καὶ ἀνοίξει χείλη αὐτοῦ μετὰ σοῦ 6 εἶτα ἀναγγελεῖ σοι δύναμιν σοφίας ὅτι διπλοῦς ἔσται τῶν κατὰ σέ καὶ τότε γνώσῃ ὅτι ἄξιά σοι ἀπέβη ἀπὸ κυρίου ὧν ἡμάρτηκας 7 ἦ ἴχνος κυρίου εὑρήσεις ἢ εἰς τὰ ἔσχατα ἀφίκου ἃ ἐποίησεν ὁ παντοκράτωρ 8 ὑψηλὸς ὁ οὐρανός καὶ τί ποιήσεις βαθύτερα δὲ τῶν ἐν ᾅδου τί οἶδας 9 ἢ μακρότερα μέτρου γῆς ἢ εὔρους θαλάσσης 10 ἐὰν δὲ καταστρέψῃ τὰ πάντα τίς ἐρεῖ αὐτῷ τί ἐποίησας 11 αὐτὸς γὰρ οἶδεν ἔργα ἀνόμων ἰδὼν δὲ ἄτοπα οὐ παρόψεται 12 ἄνθρωπος δὲ ἄλλως νήχεται λόγοις βροτὸς δὲ γεννητὸς γυναικὸς ἴσα ὄνῳ ἐρημίτῃ 1 Then answered Sophar the Naamathite: 2 Ready to speak should be ready to listen; glibness will not make an innocent man of thee. 3 Must all keep silence till thou hast done; shall none make answer to thy raillery? 4 Still thou wilt have it that all thy dealings[1] are upright, that thy heart, as God sees it, is pure. 5 Would he but speak one word in thy ear, make thee his confidant! 6 Would he but reveal to thee the secrets of his wisdom, in its ordered variety! Then wouldst thou learn that the penalty he is exacting of thee is less, far less, than thy sins deserve. 7 What, wouldst thou search out the ways of God, have knowledge unconfined of his omnipotence? 8 High as heaven is that wisdom, and thy reach so small; deep as hell itself, and thy thought so shallow! 9 Far as earth it stretches, wide as ocean; 10 will he sweep them all away, or confine them all in a little space, there is no gainsaying him. 11 He knows the false hearts of men, sees wickedness there, and wouldst thou have him overlook it? 12 Poor fools, that will have a mind of their own, and think they were born free as the wild ass! 1 Respondens autem Sophar Naamathites, dixit: 2

Numquid qui multa loquitur, non et audiet?
aut vir verbosus justificabitur?
3
Tibi soli tacebunt homines?
et cum ceteros irriseris, a nullo confutaberis?
4
Dixisti enim: Purus est sermo meus,
et mundus sum in conspectu tuo.
5
Atque utinam Deus loqueretur tecum,
et aperiret labia sua tibi,
6
ut ostenderet tibi secreta sapientiæ,
et quod multiplex esset lex ejus:
et intelligeres quod multo minora exigaris ab eo
quam meretur iniquitas tua!
7
Forsitan vestigia Dei comprehendes,
et usque ad perfectum Omnipotentem reperies?
8
Excelsior cælo est, et quid facies?
profundior inferno, et unde cognosces?
9
Longior terra mensura ejus,
et latior mari.
10
Si subverterit omnia, vel in unum coarctaverit,
quis contradicet ei?
11
Ipse enim novit hominum vanitatem;
et videns iniquitatem, nonne considerat?
12
Vir vanus in superbiam erigitur,
et tamquam pullum onagri se liberum natum putat.
13 εἰ γὰρ σὺ καθαρὰν ἔθου τὴν καρδίαν σου ὑπτιάζεις δὲ χεῖρας πρὸς αὐτόν 14 εἰ ἄνομόν τί ἐστιν ἐν χερσίν σου πόρρω ποίησον αὐτὸ ἀπὸ σοῦ ἀδικία δὲ ἐν διαίτῃ σου μὴ αὐλισθήτω 15 οὕτως γὰρ ἀναλάμψει σου τὸ πρόσωπον ὥσπερ ὕδωρ καθαρόν ἐκδύσῃ δὲ ῥύπον καὶ οὐ μὴ φοβηθῇς 16 καὶ τὸν κόπον ἐπιλήσῃ ὥσπερ κῦμα παρελθὸν καὶ οὐ πτοηθήσῃ 17 ἡ δὲ εὐχή σου ὥσπερ ἑωσφόρος ἐκ δὲ μεσημβρίας ἀνατελεῖ σοι ζωή 18 πεποιθώς τε ἔσῃ ὅτι ἔστιν σοι ἐλπίς ἐκ δὲ μερίμνης καὶ φροντίδος ἀναφανεῖταί σοι εἰρήνη 19 ἡσυχάσεις γάρ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ πολεμῶν σε μεταβαλόμενοι δὲ πολλοί σου δεηθήσονται 13 But see, thy heart once guided aright, thy hands outspread to him in prayer, 14 thou hast but to cleanse thy hands of their wrong-doing, rid thy dwelling-place of the guilt that defies it. 15 Then thou mayst lift up thy head again, free from reproach, waver no more, tremble no more. 16 These miseries of thine shall be forgotten, or remembered gratefully, like floods that are overpast. 17 Radiance of noon shall dispel twilight, dawn shall rise where darkness seemed to envelop thee; 18 fresh confidence shall be thine, fresh hope; hidden away in safety[2] thou shalt sleep secure; 19 and that rest of thine, none shall disturb, suitors a many shall come to court thy favour. 13
Tu autem firmasti cor tuum,
et expandisti ad eum manus tuas.
14
Si iniquitatem quæ est in manu tua abstuleris a te,
et non manserit in tabernaculo tuo injustitia,
15
tunc levare poteris faciem tuam absque macula;
et eris stabilis, et non timebis.
16
Miseriæ quoque oblivisceris,
et quasi aquarum quæ præterierunt recordaberis.
17
Et quasi meridianus fulgor consurget tibi ad vesperam;
et cum te consumptum putaveris, orieris ut lucifer.
18
Et habebis fiduciam, proposita tibi spe:
et defossus securus dormies.
19
Requiesces, et non erit qui te exterreat;
et deprecabuntur faciem tuam plurimi.
20 σωτηρία δὲ αὐτοὺς ἀπολείψει ἡ γὰρ ἐλπὶς αὐτῶν ἀπώλεια ὀφθαλμοὶ δὲ ἀσεβῶν τακήσονται 20 The godless another doom awaits; their eyes shall grow faint with watching, and no rescue shall ever reach them; no other prospect they have but despair. 20
Oculi autem impiorum deficient,
et effugium peribit ab eis:
et spes illorum abominatio animæ.
