14 if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent,
14 If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
14 If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away, and let not injustice dwell in your tents.
14 If you scrub your hands of sin and refuse to entertain evil in your home,
14 If iniquity were in your hand, and you put it far away, And would not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
14 Get rid of your sins, and leave all iniquity behind you.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 11:14
Commentary on Job 11:13-20
(Read Job 11:13-20)
Zophar exhorts Job to repentance, and gives him encouragement, yet mixed with hard thoughts of him. He thought that worldly prosperity was always the lot of the righteous, and that Job was to be deemed a hypocrite unless his prosperity was restored. Then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; that is, thou mayst come boldly to the throne of grace, and not with the terror and amazement expressed in Hebrews 10:22.
