Job 12:4-6 World English Bible (WEB)

I am like one who is a joke to his neighbor,
    I, who called on God, and he answered.
    The just, the blameless man is a joke.
In the thought of him who is at ease there is contempt for misfortune.
    It is ready for them whose foot slips.
The tents of robbers prosper.
    Those who provoke God are secure,
    who carry their God in their hands.

Job 12:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

“I have become a laughingstock to my friends,
    though I called on God and he answered
    a mere laughingstock, though righteous and blameless!
Those who are at ease have contempt for misfortune
    as the fate of those whose feet are slipping.
The tents of marauders are undisturbed,
    and those who provoke God are secure
    those God has in his hand.[a]
