Job 20:15 New English Translation (NET Bible)

15 The wealth that he consumed[a] he vomits up,
God will make him throw it out[b] of his stomach.

Footnotes:

  1. Job 20:15 tn Heb “swallowed.”
  2. Job 20:15 tn The choice of words is excellent. The verb יָרַשׁ (yarash) means either “to inherit” or “to disinherit; to dispossess.” The context makes the figure clear that God is administering the emetic to make the wicked throw up the wealth (thus, “God will make him throw it out…”), but since wealth is the subject there is a disinheritance meant here.
