Job Chapter 20

, ; . 1 {S} Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said:
, ; , . 2 Therefore do my thoughts give answer to me, even by reason of mine agitation that is in me.
; , . 3 I have heard the reproof which putteth me to shame, but out of my understanding my spirit answereth me.
, -; -. 4 Knowest thou not this of old time, since man was placed upon earth,
, ; -. 5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the godless 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 that 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 which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
, ; , . 10 His children shall appease the poor, and his hands shall restore his wealth.
, ; , - . 11 His bones are full of his youth, but it 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 will not let it go, but keep it still within his mouth;
, ; . 14 Yet his food 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 look upon the rivers, the flowing streams of honey and curd.
, ; , . 18 That which he laboured for shall he give back, and shall not swallow it down; according to the substance that he hath gotten, he shall not rejoice.
-, ; , . 19 For he hath oppressed and forsaken the poor; he hath violently taken away a house, and he shall not build it up.
, - ; , . 20 Because he knew no quietness within him, in his greed he suffered nought to escape,
- ; -, - . 21 There was nothing left that he devoured not--therefore his prosperity shall not endure.
, ; - . 22 In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits; the hand of every one that is in misery shall come upon him.
, ---, ; , . 23 It shall be for the filling of his belly; He shall cast the fierceness of His wrath upon him, and shall cause it to rain upon him into his flesh.
, ; , . 24 If he flee from the iron weapon, the bow of brass shall strike him through.
, : , ; . 25 He draweth it forth, and it cometh out of his body; yea, the glittering point cometh out of his gall; terrors are upon him.
-, :
, -; .
26 All darkness is laid up for his treasures; {N}
a fire not blown by man shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tent.
‍; , . 27 The heavens shall reveal his iniquity, and the earth shall rise up against him.
, ; , . 28 The increase of his house shall depart, 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.
