Job's Response to Zophar

1And Job answered and said, 2No doubt but you are the people, and wisdom shall die with you. 3But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yes, who knows not such things as these? 4I am as one mocked of his neighbor, who calls on God, and he answers him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn. 5He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease. 6The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God brings abundantly. 7But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell you: 8Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach you: and the fishes of the sea shall declare to you. 9Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD has worked this? 10In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. 11Does not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat? 12With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding. 13With him is wisdom and strength, he has counsel and understanding. 14Behold, he breaks down, and it cannot be built again: he shuts up a man, and there can be no opening. 15Behold, he withholds the waters, and they dry up: also he sends them out, and they overturn the earth. 16With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his. 17He leads counsellors away spoiled, and makes the judges fools. 18He looses the bond of kings, and girds their loins with a girdle. 19He leads princes away spoiled, and overthrows the mighty. 20He removes away the speech of the trusty, and takes away the understanding of the aged. 21He pours contempt on princes, and weakens the strength of the mighty. 22He discovers deep things out of darkness, and brings out to light the shadow of death. 23He increases the nations, and destroys them: he enlarges the nations, and straitens them again. 24He takes away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causes them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way. 25They grope in the dark without light, and he makes them to stagger like a drunken man.
