Job 15:17-35

NAS 17 "I will tell you, listen to me; And what I have seen I will also declare; NIV 17 “Listen to me and I will explain to you; let me tell you what I have seen, NAS 18 What wise men have told, And have not concealed from their fathers, NIV 18 what the wise have declared, hiding nothing received from their ancestors NAS 19 To whom alone the land was given, And no alien passed among them. NIV 19 (to whom alone the land was given when no foreigners moved among them): NAS 20 "The wicked man writhes in pain all his days, And numbered are the years stored up for the ruthless. NIV 20 All his days the wicked man suffers torment, the ruthless man through all the years stored up for him. NAS 21 "Sounds of terror are in his ears; While at peace the destroyer comes upon him. NIV 21 Terrifying sounds fill his ears; when all seems well, marauders attack him. NAS 22 "He does not believe that he will return from darkness, And he is destined for the sword. NIV 22 He despairs of escaping the realm of darkness; he is marked for the sword. NAS 23 "He wanders about for food, saying, 'Where is it?' He knows that a day of darkness is at hand. NIV 23 He wanders about for food like a vulture; he knows the day of darkness is at hand. NAS 24 "Distress and anguish terrify him, They overpower him like a king ready for the attack, NIV 24 Distress and anguish fill him with terror; troubles overwhelm him, like a king poised to attack, NAS 25 Because he has stretched out his hand against God And conducts himself arrogantly against the Almighty. NIV 25 because he shakes his fist at God and vaunts himself against the Almighty, NAS 26 "He rushes headlong at Him With his massive shield. NIV 26 defiantly charging against him with a thick, strong shield. NAS 27 "For he has covered his face with his fat And made his thighs heavy with flesh. NIV 27 “Though his face is covered with fat and his waist bulges with flesh, NAS 28 "He has lived in desolate cities, In houses no one would inhabit, Which are destined to become ruins. NIV 28 he will inhabit ruined towns and houses where no one lives, houses crumbling to rubble. NAS 29 "He will not become rich, nor will his wealth endure; And his grain will not bend down to the ground. NIV 29 He will no longer be rich and his wealth will not endure, nor will his possessions spread over the land. NAS 30 "He will not escape from darkness; The flame will wither his shoots, And by the breath of His mouth he will go away. NIV 30 He will not escape the darkness; a flame will wither his shoots, and the breath of God’s mouth will carry him away. NAS 31 "Let him not trust in emptiness, deceiving himself; For emptiness will be his reward. NIV 31 Let him not deceive himself by trusting what is worthless, for he will get nothing in return. NAS 32 "It will be accomplished before his time, And his palm branch will not be green. NIV 32 Before his time he will wither, and his branches will not flourish. NAS 33 "He will drop off his unripe grape like the vine, And will cast off his flower like the olive tree. NIV 33 He will be like a vine stripped of its unripe grapes, like an olive tree shedding its blossoms. NAS 34 "For the company of the godless is barren, And fire consumes the tents of the corrupt. NIV 34 For the company of the godless will be barren, and fire will consume the tents of those who love bribes. NAS 35 "They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity, And their mind prepares deception." NIV 35 They conceive trouble and give birth to evil; their womb fashions deceit.”
