Job 11:1-3

KJV 1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said, 2 Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified? 3 Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?

Job 11:1-3 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
11 And Zophar the Naamathite answereth and saith: --

2 Is a multitude of words not answered? And is a man of lips justified?

3 Thy devices make men keep silent, Thou scornest, and none is causing blushing!

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

1-2 Zophar wanted a response from someone and sense no one else was going to speak up he was. Zophar considered what Job said as nonsense but it was Job true feelings, for Job these people were kicking him when he was down. He is mocking Job.

3 He ridicules Job for what he said, Job needed to be uplifted. Job was not speaking to have them be quiet he was pleading his case to God, not to them truth is his faults were not aginst them so they had no reason to speak.
