24 He shall flee from the iron weapons, and the bow of steel shall strike him through.

25 The arrow is drawn out, and cometh forth of the [a]body, and shineth of his gall, so fear cometh upon him.

26 [b]All darkness shall be hid in his secret places: the fire that is not [c]blown shall devour him, and that which remaineth in his tabernacle shall be destroyed.


  1. Job 20:25 Some read, of the quiver.
  2. Job 20:26 All fear and sorrow shall light upon him, when he thinketh to escape.
  3. Job 20:26 That is, fire from heaven, or the fire of God’s wrath.

Job 20:24-26 New International Version (NIV)

24 Though he flees from an iron weapon,
    a bronze-tipped arrow pierces him.
25 He pulls it out of his back,
    the gleaming point out of his liver.
Terrors will come over him;
26     total darkness lies in wait for his treasures.
A fire unfanned will consume him
    and devour what is left in his tent.
