NLT 1 Then Zophar the Naamathite replied: NIV 1 Then Zophar the Naamathite replied: NLT 2 “I must reply because I am greatly disturbed. NIV 2 “My troubled thoughts prompt me to answer because I am greatly disturbed. NLT 3 I’ve had to endure your insults, but now my spirit prompts me to reply. NIV 3 I hear a rebuke that dishonors me, and my understanding inspires me to reply. NLT 4 “Don’t you realize that from the beginning of time, ever since people were first placed on the earth, NIV 4 “Surely you know how it has been from of old, ever since mankind was placed on the earth, NLT 5 the triumph of the wicked has been short lived and the joy of the godless has been only temporary? NIV 5 that the mirth of the wicked is brief, the joy of the godless lasts but a moment. NLT 6 Though the pride of the godless reaches to the heavens and their heads touch the clouds, NIV 6 Though the pride of the godless person reaches to the heavens and his head touches the clouds, NLT 7 yet they will vanish forever, thrown away like their own dung. Those who knew them will ask, ‘Where are they?’ NIV 7 he will perish forever, like his own dung; those who have seen him will say, ‘Where is he?’ NLT 8 They will fade like a dream and not be found. They will vanish like a vision in the night. NIV 8 Like a dream he flies away, no more to be found, banished like a vision of the night. NLT 9 Those who once saw them will see them no more. Their families will never see them again. NIV 9 The eye that saw him will not see him again; his place will look on him no more. NLT 10 Their children will beg from the poor, for they must give back their stolen riches. NIV 10 His children must make amends to the poor; his own hands must give back his wealth. NLT 11 Though they are young, their bones will lie in the dust. NIV 11 The youthful vigor that fills his bones will lie with him in the dust. NLT 12 “They enjoyed the sweet taste of wickedness, letting it melt under their tongue. NIV 12 “Though evil is sweet in his mouth and he hides it under his tongue, NLT 13 They savored it, holding it long in their mouths. NIV 13 though he cannot bear to let it go and lets it linger in his mouth, NLT 14 But suddenly the food in their bellies turns sour, a poisonous venom in their stomach. NIV 14 yet his food will turn sour in his stomach; it will become the venom of serpents within him. NLT 15 They will vomit the wealth they swallowed. God won’t let them keep it down. NIV 15 He will spit out the riches he swallowed; God will make his stomach vomit them up. NLT 16 They will suck the poison of cobras. The viper will kill them. NIV 16 He will suck the poison of serpents; the fangs of an adder will kill him. NLT 17 They will never again enjoy streams of olive oil or rivers of milk and honey. NIV 17 He will not enjoy the streams, the rivers flowing with honey and cream. NLT 18 They will give back everything they worked for. Their wealth will bring them no joy. NIV 18 What he toiled for he must give back uneaten; he will not enjoy the profit from his trading. NLT 19 For they oppressed the poor and left them destitute. They foreclosed on their homes. NIV 19 For he has oppressed the poor and left them destitute; he has seized houses he did not build. NLT 20 They were always greedy and never satisfied. Nothing remains of all the things they dreamed about. NIV 20 “Surely he will have no respite from his craving; he cannot save himself by his treasure. NLT 21 Nothing is left after they finish gorging themselves. Therefore, their prosperity will not endure. NIV 21 Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure. NLT 22 “In the midst of plenty, they will run into trouble and be overcome by misery. NIV 22 In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him; the full force of misery will come upon him. NLT 23 May God give them a bellyful of trouble. May God rain down his anger upon them. NIV 23 When he has filled his belly, God will vent his burning anger against him and rain down his blows on him. NLT 24 When they try to escape an iron weapon, a bronze-tipped arrow will pierce them. NIV 24 Though he flees from an iron weapon, a bronze-tipped arrow pierces him. NLT 25 The arrow is pulled from their back, and the arrowhead glistens with blood. The terrors of death are upon them. NIV 25 He pulls it out of his back, the gleaming point out of his liver. Terrors will come over him; NLT 26 Their treasures will be thrown into deepest darkness. A wildfire will devour their goods, consuming all they have left. NIV 26 total darkness lies in wait for his treasures. A fire unfanned will consume him and devour what is left in his tent. NLT 27 The heavens will reveal their guilt, and the earth will testify against them. NIV 27 The heavens will expose his guilt; the earth will rise up against him. NLT 28 A flood will sweep away their house. God’s anger will descend on them in torrents. NIV 28 A flood will carry off his house, rushing waters on the day of God’s wrath. NLT 29 This is the reward that God gives the wicked. It is the inheritance decreed by God.” NIV 29 Such is the fate God allots the wicked, the heritage appointed for them by God.”
