Job 20

1  Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

2  Therefore do my thoughts cause me to answer, and for this I make haste.

3  I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer.

4  Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,

5  That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

6  Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;

7  Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?

8  He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.

9  The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.

10  His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.
