no reverence for him?

Were you born before the hills were made?

What has weakened your vision,[fn]

with a thirst for wickedness!

I will answer you from my own experience.

long before any foreigners arrived.

Years of trouble are stored up for the ruthless.

for fear they will be murdered.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:23 - They wander around, saying, ‘Where can I find bread?’[fn]
They know their day of destruction is near.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:24 - That dark day terrifies them.
They live in distress and anguish,
like a king preparing for battle.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:25 - For they shake their fists at God,
defying the Almighty.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:26 - Holding their strong shields,
they defiantly charge against him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:27 - “These wicked people are heavy and prosperous;
their waists bulge with fat.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:28 - But their cities will be ruined.
They will live in abandoned houses
that are ready to tumble down.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:29 - Their riches will not last,
and their wealth will not endure.
Their possessions will no longer spread across the horizon.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:30 - “They will not escape the darkness.
The burning sun will wither their shoots,
and the breath of God will destroy them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:31 - Let them no longer fool themselves by trusting in empty riches,
for emptiness will be their only reward.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:32 - Like trees, they will be cut down in the prime of life;
their branches will never again be green.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:33 - They will be like a vine whose grapes are harvested too early,
like an olive tree that loses its blossoms before the fruit can form.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:34 - For the godless are barren.
Their homes, enriched through bribery, will burn.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:35 - They conceive trouble and give birth to evil.
Their womb produces deceit.”
