NET ©

But it will not go well with the wicked, nor will they 1  prolong their 2  days like a shadow, 3  because they 4  do not stand in fear 5  before God.

BBE ©

But it will not be well for the evil-doer; he will not make his days long like a shade, because he has no fear before God.

NRSV ©

but it will not be well with the wicked, neither will they prolong their days like a shadow, because they do not stand in fear before God.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “he.”

tn The word “their” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is supplied in the translation for smoothness.

tn The phrase “like a shadow” (כַּצֵּל, katsel) modifies the verb (“prolong”) rather than the noun (“days”). Several English versions misconstrue the line: “he will not prolong his days, [which are] like a shadow” (KJV, ASV); “the man who does not fear God is like a shadow” (NEB); and “he will not prolong his shadowy days” (NAB). It should be rendered “he will not prolong his days like a shadow” (RSV, NRSV, NASB, MLB, NIV). Unlike a shadow that lengthens at sunset, the wicked do not normally live long.

tn Heb “he.”

tn Heb “they do not fear.”
