Job 14:2; Job 27:13–23

He comes out like na flower and owithers;

he flees like pa shadow and continues not.


13  eThis is the portion of a wicked man with God,

and the heritage that foppressors receive from the Almighty:

14  If his gchildren are multiplied, it is for hthe sword,

and his descendants have not enough bread.

15  Those who survive him the pestilence buries,

and his iwidows do not weep.

16  Though he jheap up silver like dust,

and pile up clothing like clay,

17  he may pile it up, but the righteous will wear it,

and kthe innocent will divide the silver.

18  He builds his lhouse like a moth's,

like ma booth that na watchman makes.

19  He goes to bed rich, but will odo so no more;

he opens his eyes, and phis wealth is gone.

20  qTerrors overtake him like ra flood;

in the night a whirlwind scarries him off.

21  tThe east wind lifts him up and he is gone;

it usweeps him out of his place.

22  It1 hurls at him vwithout pity;

he flees from its2 power in headlong flight.

23  It wclaps its hands at him

and xhisses at him from its place.
