Job 20:20-29 World English Bible (WEB)

20 “Because he knew no quietness within him,
    he shall not save anything of that in which he delights.
21 There was nothing left that he didn’t devour,
    therefore his prosperity shall not endure.
22 In the fullness of his sufficiency, distress shall overtake him.
    The hand of everyone who is in misery shall come on him.
23 When he is about to fill his belly, God will cast the fierceness of his wrath on him.
    It will rain on him while he is eating.
24 He shall flee from the iron weapon.
    The bronze arrow shall strike him through.
25 He draws it out, and it comes out of his body.
    Yes, the glittering point comes out of his liver.
    Terrors are on him.
26 All darkness is laid up for his treasures.
    An unfanned fire shall devour him.
    It shall consume that which is left in his tent.
27 The heavens shall reveal his iniquity.
    The earth shall rise up against him.
28 The increase of his house shall depart.
    They shall rush away in the day of his wrath.
29 This is the portion of a wicked man from God,
    the heritage appointed to him by God.”

Job 20:20-29 New International Version (NIV)

20 “Surely he will have no respite from his craving;
    he cannot save himself by his treasure.
21 Nothing is left for him to devour;
    his prosperity will not endure.
22 In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him;
    the full force of misery will come upon him.
23 When he has filled his belly,
    God will vent his burning anger against him
    and rain down his blows on him.
24 Though he flees from an iron weapon,
    a bronze-tipped arrow pierces him.
25 He pulls it out of his back,
    the gleaming point out of his liver.
Terrors will come over him;
26     total darkness lies in wait for his treasures.
A fire unfanned will consume him
    and devour what is left in his tent.
27 The heavens will expose his guilt;
    the earth will rise up against him.
28 A flood will carry off his house,
    rushing waters[a] on the day of God’s wrath.
29 Such is the fate God allots the wicked,
    the heritage appointed for them by God.”
