Job 24:19-20


24:19 The drought as well as the heat carry away

the melted snow; 1 

so the grave 2  takes away those who have sinned. 3 

24:20 The womb 4  forgets him,

the worm feasts on him,

no longer will he be remembered.

Like a tree, wickedness will be broken down.

1 tn Heb “the waters of the snow.”

2 tn Or “so Sheol.”

3 tn This is the meaning of the verse, which in Hebrew only has “The grave / they have sinned.”

4 tn Here “womb” is synecdoche, representing one’s mother.
