Job 20

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