20:3 I have heard [H8085] the check [H4148] of my reproach [H3639] , and the spirit [H7307] of my understanding [H998] causeth me to answer [H6030] .
20:4 Knowest [H3045] thou [not] this of old [H5703] , since man [H120] was placed [H7760] upon earth [H776] ,
20:5 That the triumphing [H7445] of the wicked [H7563] [is] short [H7138] , and the joy [H8057] of the hypocrite [H2611] [but] for a moment [H7281] ?(short: Heb. from near)
20:6 Though his excellency [H7863] mount up [H5927] to the heavens [H8064] , and his head [H7218] reach [H5060] unto the clouds [H5645] ;(clouds: Heb. cloud)
20:7 [Yet] he shall perish [H6] for ever [H5331] like his own dung [H1561] : they which have seen [H7200] him shall say [H559] , Where [H335] [is] he?
20:8 He shall fly away [H5774] as a dream [H2472] , and shall not be found [H4672] : yea, he shall be chased away [H5074] as a vision [H2384] of the night [H3915] .
20:9 The eye [H5869] also [which] saw [H7805] him shall [see him] no more [H3254] ; neither shall his place [H4725] any more behold [H7789] him.

20:11 His bones [H6106] are full [H4390] [of the sin] of his youth [H5934] , which shall lie down [H7901] with him in the dust [H6083] .
20:12 Though wickedness [H7451] be sweet [H4985] in his mouth [H6310] , [though] he hide [H3582] it under his tongue [H3956] ;
20:13 [Though] he spare [H2550] it, and forsake [H5800] it not; but keep it still [H4513] within [H8432] his mouth [H2441] :(within: Heb. in the midst of his palate)
20:14 [Yet] his meat [H3899] in his bowels [H4578] is turned [H2015] , [it is] the gall [H4846] of asps [H6620] within [H7130] him.
20:15 He hath swallowed down [H1104] riches [H2428] , and he shall vomit them up again [H6958] : God [H410] shall cast them out [H3423] of his belly [H990] .
20:16 He shall suck [H3243] the poison [H7219] of asps [H6620] : the viper's [H660] tongue [H3956] shall slay [H2026] him.
20:17 He shall not see [H7200] the rivers [H6390] , the floods [H5104] , the brooks [H5158] of honey [H1706] and butter [H2529] .(the floods: or, streaming brooks)
20:18 That which he laboured [H3022] for shall he restore [H7725] , and shall not swallow [it] down [H1104] : according to [his] substance [H2428] [shall] the restitution [H8545] [be], and he shall not rejoice [H5965] [therein].(his: Heb. the substance of his exchange)
20:19 Because he hath oppressed [H7533] [and] hath forsaken [H5800] the poor [H1800] ; [because] he hath violently taken away [H1497] an house [H1004] which he builded [H1129] not;(oppressed: Heb. crushed)
20:20 Surely he shall not feel [H3045] quietness [H7961] in his belly [H990] , he shall not save [H4422] of that which he desired [H2530] .(feel: Heb. know)
20:21 There shall none of his meat [H400] be left [H8300] ; therefore shall no man look [H2342] for his goods [H2898] .(none: or, be none left for his meat)
20:22 In the fulness [H4390] [H4390] of his sufficiency [H5607] he shall be in straits [H3334] : every hand [H3027] of the wicked [H6001] shall come [H935] upon him.(wicked: or, troublesome)
20:23 [When] he is about to fill [H4390] his belly [H990] , [God] shall cast [H7971] the fury [H2740] of his wrath [H639] upon him, and shall rain [H4305] [it] upon him while he is eating [H3894] .
20:24 He shall flee [H1272] from the iron [H1270] weapon [H5402] , [and] the bow [H7198] of steel [H5154] shall strike him through [H2498] .
20:25 It is drawn [H8025] , and cometh out [H3318] of the body [H1465] ; yea, the glittering sword [H1300] cometh out [H1980] of his gall [H4846] : terrors [H367] [are] upon him.
20:26 All darkness [H2822] [shall be] hid [H2934] in his secret places [H6845] : a fire [H784] not blown [H5301] shall consume [H398] him; it shall go ill [H3415] with him that is left [H8300] in his tabernacle [H168] .
20:27 The heaven [H8064] shall reveal [H1540] his iniquity [H5771] ; and the earth [H776] shall rise up [H6965] against him.
20:28 The increase [H2981] of his house [H1004] shall depart [H1540] , [and his goods] shall flow away [H5064] in the day [H3117] of his wrath [H639] .
20:29 This [is] the portion [H2506] of a wicked [H7563] man [H120] from God [H430] , and the heritage [H5159] appointed [H561] unto him by God [H410] .(appointed: Heb. of his decree from God)
