New International Version - UK
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?
