Job 11:13-20 NWT
13 If you yourself will really prepare your heart And actually spread out your palms to him, 14 If what is hurtful is in your hand, put it far away, And let no unrighteousness dwell in your tents. 15 For then you will raise your face without defect And you will certainly become established, and you will not fear. 16 For you—you will forget trouble itself; As waters that have passed along you will remember [it]. 17 And brighter than midday will [your] life's duration arise; Darkness will become like the morning itself. 18 And you will be bound to trust because there exists hope; And you will certainly look carefully around—in security you will lie down. 19 And you will indeed stretch yourself out, with no one to make [you] tremble. And many people will certainly put you in a gentle mood; 20 And the very eyes of the wicked will fail; And a place for flight will certainly perish from them, And their hope will be an expiring of the soul."

Job 11:13-20 CEV
(13) Surrender your heart to God, turn to him in prayer, (14) and give up your sins-- even those you do in secret. (15) Then you won't be ashamed; you will be confident and fearless. (16) Your troubles will go away like water beneath a bridge, (17) and your darkest night will be brighter than noon. (18) You will rest safe and secure, filled with hope and emptied of worry. (19) You will sleep without fear and be greatly respected. (20) But those who are evil will go blind and lose their way. Their only escape is death!

Job 11:13-20 LITV
(13) If you prepare your heart, and stretch out your hands toward Him; (14) if iniquity is in your hand, put it far away and do not let wickedness dwell in your tents; (15) surely then you shall lift up your face without blemish; and you will be steadfast, and you will not fear; (16) for you shall forget your misery, and shall remember it as waters that have passed; (17) and your lifetime shall rise more than the noonday; you shall fly; you shall be as the morning. (18) And you shall trust, because there is hope. Yea, you shall look about and you shall lie down in safety. (19) You shall lie down, and no one will be terrifying; yea, many shall seek your favor. (20) But the eyes of the wicked shall be consumed, and escape shall perish from them; and their hope shall be like the breathing out of the soul.

Job 11:13-20 BBE
(13) But if you put your heart right, stretching out your hands to him; (14) If you put far away the evil of your hands, and let no wrongdoing have a place in your tent; (15) Then truly your face will be lifted up, with no mark of sin, and you will be fixed in your place without fear: (16) For your sorrow will go from your memory, like waters flowing away: (17) And your life will be brighter than day; though it is dark, it will become like the morning. (18) And you will be safe because there is hope; after looking round, you will take your rest in quiet; (19) Sleeping with no fear of danger; and men will be desiring to have grace in your eyes; (20) But the eyes of the evil-doers will be wasting away; their way of flight is gone, and their only hope is the taking of their last breath.
