Job 36:14-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

14 They will die young—
    their life[a] among the reprobate.
15 But he saves the afflicted through their affliction,
    and opens their ears through oppression.
16 [b]He entices you from distress,
    to a broad place without constraint;
    what rests on your table is rich food.


  1. 36:14 Life: a miserable life before death or a shadowy existence in Sheol. Reprobate: cf. Dt 23:18–19.
  2. 36:16–20 The Hebrew text here is obscure. Although each verse makes some sense, they do not constitute a logical sequence.

Job 36:14-16 New International Version (NIV)

14 They die in their youth,
    among male prostitutes of the shrines.
15 But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering;
    he speaks to them in their affliction.

16 “He is wooing you from the jaws of distress
    to a spacious place free from restriction,
    to the comfort of your table laden with choice food.
