Job 21:15-17 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

15 Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him,
and what will we gain by pleading with Him?”
16 But their prosperity is not of their own doing.
The counsel of the wicked is far from me!

17 How often is the lamp of the wicked put out?
Does disaster[a] come on them?
Does He apportion destruction in His anger?

  1. Job 21:17 Lit their disaster

Job 21:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

15 Who is the Almighty, that we should serve him?
    What would we gain by praying to him?’
16 But their prosperity is not in their own hands,
    so I stand aloof from the plans of the wicked.

17 “Yet how often is the lamp of the wicked snuffed out?
    How often does calamity come upon them,
    the fate God allots in his anger?
