Job 21:7-34

Wherefore do the wicked
<07563>
live
<02421> (8799)_,
become old
<06275> (8804)_,
yea, are mighty
<01396> (8804)
in power
<02428>_?
Their seed
<02233>
is established
<03559> (8737)
in their sight
<06440>
with them, and their offspring
<06631>
before their eyes
<05869>_.
Their houses
<01004>
[are] safe
<07965>
from fear
<06343>_,
neither [is] the rod
<07626>
of God
<0433>
upon them. {safe...: Heb. peace from}
Their bull
<07794>
gendereth
<05674> (8765)_,
and faileth
<01602> (8686)
not; their cow
<06510>
calveth
<06403> (8762)_,
and casteth not her calf
<07921> (8762)_.
They send forth
<07971> (8762)
their little ones
<05759>
like a flock
<06629>_,
and their children
<03206>
dance
<07540> (8762)_.
They take
<05375> (8799)
the timbrel
<08596>
and harp
<03658>_,
and rejoice
<08055> (8799)
at the sound
<06963>
of the organ
<05748>_.
They spend
<03615> (8762) (8675) <01086> (8762)
their days
<03117>
in wealth
<02896>_,
and in a moment
<07281>
go down
<02865> (8735) (8676) <05181> (8799)
to the grave
<07585>_.
{in wealth: or, in mirth}
Therefore they say
<0559> (8799)
unto God
<0410>_,
Depart
<05493> (8798)
from us; for we desire
<02654> (8804)
not the knowledge
<01847>
of thy ways
<01870>_.
What [is] the Almighty
<07706>_,
that we should serve
<05647> (8799)
him? and what profit
<03276> (8686)
should we have, if we pray
<06293> (8799)
unto him?
Lo, their good
<02898>
[is] not in their hand
<03027>_:
the counsel
<06098>
of the wicked
<07563>
is far
<07368> (8804)
from me.
How oft is the candle
<05216>
of the wicked
<07563>
put out
<01846> (8799)_!
and [how oft] cometh
<0935> (8799)
their destruction
<0343>
upon them! [God] distributeth
<02505> (8762)
sorrows
<02256>
in his anger
<0639>_.
{candle: or, lamp}
They are as stubble
<08401>
before
<06440>
the wind
<07307>_,
and as chaff
<04671>
that the storm
<05492>
carrieth away
<01589> (8804)_.
{carrieth: Heb. stealeth}
God
<0433>
layeth up
<06845> (8799)
his iniquity
<0205>
for his children
<01121>_:
he rewardeth
<07999> (8762)
him, and he shall know
<03045> (8799)
[it]. {his iniquity: that is, the punishment of his iniquity}
His eyes
<05869>
shall see
<07200> (8799)
his destruction
<03589>_,
and he shall drink
<08354> (8799)
of the wrath
<02534>
of the Almighty
<07706>_.
For what pleasure
<02656>
[hath] he in his house
<01004>
after
<0310>
him, when the number
<04557>
of his months
<02320>
is cut off in the midst
<02686> (8795)_?
Shall [any] teach
<03925> (8762)
God
<0410>
knowledge
<01847>_?
seeing he judgeth
<08199> (8799)
those that are high
<07311> (8802)_.
One dieth
<04191> (8799)
in his full
<08537>
strength
<06106>_,
being wholly at ease
<07946>
and quiet
<07961>_.
{his...: Heb. his very, or, the strength of, his perfection}
His breasts
<05845>
are full
<04390> (8804)
of milk
<02461>_,
and his bones
<06106>
are moistened
<08248> (8792)
with marrow
<04221>_.
{breasts: or, milk pails}
And another dieth
<04191> (8799)
in the bitterness
<04751>
of his soul
<05315>_,
and never eateth
<0398> (8804)
with pleasure
<02896>_.
They shall lie down
<07901> (8799)
alike
<03162>
in the dust
<06083>_,
and the worms
<07415>
shall cover
<03680> (8762)
them.
Behold, I know
<03045> (8804)
your thoughts
<04284>_,
and the devices
<04209>
[which] ye wrongfully imagine
<02554> (8799)
against me.
For ye say
<0559> (8799)_,
Where [is] the house
<01004>
of the prince
<05081>_?
and where [are] the dwelling
<04908>
places
<0168>
of the wicked
<07563>_?
{the dwelling...: Heb. the tent of the tabernacles}
Have ye not asked
<07592> (8804)
them that go
<05674> (8802)
by the way
<01870>_?
and do ye not know
<05234> (8762)
their tokens
<0226>_,
That the wicked
<07451>
is reserved
<02820> (8735)
to the day
<03117>
of destruction
<0343>_?
they shall be brought forth
<02986> (8714)
to the day
<03117>
of wrath
<05678>_.
{wrath: Heb. wraths}
Who shall declare
<05046> (8686)
his way
<01870>
to his face
<06440>_?
and who shall repay
<07999> (8762)
him [what] he hath done
<06213> (8804)_?
Yet shall he be brought
<02986> (8714)
to the grave
<06913>_,
and shall remain
<08245> (8799)
in the tomb
<01430>_.
{grave: Heb. graves} {remain...: Heb. watch in the heap}
The clods
<07263>
of the valley
<05158>
shall be sweet
<04985> (8804)
unto him, and every man
<0120>
shall draw
<04900> (8799)
after
<0310>
him, as [there are] innumerable
<04557>
before
<06440>
him.
How then comfort
<05162> (8762)
ye me in vain
<01892>_,
seeing in your answers
<08666>
there remaineth
<07604> (8738)
falsehood
<04604>_?
{falsehood: Heb. transgression?}
