Job 20

1 - Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
2 - Therefore do my thoughts cause me to answer, and for [this] I make haste.
3 - I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer.
4 - Knowest thou [not] this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
5 - That the triumphing of the wicked [is] short, and the joy of the hypocrite [but] for a moment?
6 - Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
7 - [Yet] he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where [is] he?
8 - He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
9 - The eye also [which] saw him shall [see him] no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
10 - His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.
11 - His bones are full [of the sin] of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.
12 - Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, [though] he hide it under his tongue;
13 - [Though] he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:
14 - [Yet] his meat in his bowels is turned, [it is] the gall of asps within him.
15 - He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.
16 - He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper's tongue shall slay him.
17 - He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter.
18 - That which he laboured for shall he restore, and shall not swallow [it] down: according to [his] substance [shall] the restitution [be], and he shall not rejoice [therein].
19 - Because he hath oppressed [and] hath forsaken the poor; [because] he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not;
20 - Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.
21 - There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods.
22 - In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits: every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.
23 - [When] he is about to fill his belly, [God] shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain [it] upon him while he is eating.
24 - He shall flee from the iron weapon, [and] the bow of steel shall strike him through.
25 - It is drawn, and cometh out of the body; yea, the glittering sword cometh out of his gall: terrors [are] upon him.
26 - All darkness [shall be] hid in his secret places: a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.
27 - The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him.
28 - The increase of his house shall depart, [and his goods] shall flow away in the day of his wrath.
29 - This [is] the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed unto him by God.
