Psalm 17:14

14  from men by your hand, O Lord,

from zmen of the world whose aportion is in this life.1

You fill their womb with treasure;2

they are satisfied with bchildren,

and they leave their abundance to their infants.

Psalm 73:7

Their keyes swell out through fatness;

their hearts overflow with follies.

Job 21:7–13

oWhy do the wicked live,

reach old age, and grow mighty in power?

Their poffspring are established in their presence,

and their descendants before their eyes.

Their houses are qsafe from fear,

and rno rod of God is upon them.

10  Their bull breeds without fail;

their cow calves and sdoes not miscarry.

11  They send out their tlittle boys like a flock,

and their children dance.

12  They sing to uthe tambourine and vthe lyre

and rejoice to the sound of vthe pipe.

13  They wspend their days in prosperity,

and in xpeace they go down to ySheol.
