Why, God does not trust even his angels; even they are not pure in his sight.
And we drink evil as if it were water; yes, we are corrupt; we are worthless.
Now listen, Job, to what I know.
Those who are wise have taught me truths which they learned from their ancestors, and they kept no secrets hidden.
Their land was free from foreigners; there was no one to lead them away from God.
The wicked who oppress others will be in torment as long as they live.
Voices of terror will scream in their ears, and robbers attack when they think they are safe.
They have no hope of escaping from darkness, for somewhere a sword is waiting to kill them,
and vultures are waiting to eat their corpses. They know their future is dark;
disaster, like a powerful king, is waiting to attack them.
That is the fate of those who shake their fists at God and defy the Almighty.
