Job 20


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