20:1 Then Zophar the Naamathite answered,
20:2 Therefore do my thoughts give answer to me, Even by reason of my haste that is in me.
20:3 I have heard the reproof which puts me to shame; The spirit of my understanding answers me.
20:4 Don`t you know this from old time, Since man was placed on earth,
20:5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, The joy of the godless but for a moment?
20:6 Though his height mount up to the heavens, And his head reach to the clouds,
20:7 Yet he shall perish forever like his own dung, Those who have seen him shall say, `Where is he?`
20:10 His children shall seek the favor of the poor. His hands shall give back his wealth.
20:13 Though he spare it, and will not let it go, But keep it still within his mouth;
20:14 Yet his food in his bowels is turned. It is cobra venom within him.
20:16 He shall suck cobra venom. The viper`s tongue shall kill him.
20:18 That for which he labored he shall restore, and shall not swallow it down; According to the substance that he has gotten, he shall not rejoice.
20:19 For he has oppressed and forsaken the poor. He has violently taken away a house, and he shall not build it up.
20:20 Because he knew no quietness within him, He shall not save anything of that in which he delights.
20:21 There was nothing left that he didn`t devour, Therefore his prosperity shall not endure.
20:22 In the fullness of his sufficiency, distress shall overtake him: The hand of everyone who is in misery shall come on him.
20:24 He shall flee from the iron weapon. The bronze arrow shall strike him through.
20:27 The heavens shall reveal his iniquity, The earth shall rise up against him.
20:28 The increase of his house shall depart; They shall rush away in the day of his wrath.
