Job 22:4-11 World English Bible (WEB)

Is it for your piety that he reproves you,
    that he enters with you into judgment?
Isn’t your wickedness great?
    Neither is there any end to your iniquities.
For you have taken pledges from your brother for nothing,
    and stripped the naked of their clothing.
You haven’t given water to the weary to drink,
    and you have withheld bread from the hungry.
But as for the mighty man, he had the earth.
    The honorable man, he lived in it.
You have sent widows away empty,
    and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
10 Therefore snares are around you.
    Sudden fear troubles you,
11 or darkness, so that you can not see,
    and floods of waters cover you.

Job 22:4-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“Is it because of your [a]reverence that He reproves you,
That He enters into judgment against you?
“Is not your wickedness great,
And your iniquities without end?
“For you have taken pledges of your brothers without cause,
And stripped [b]men naked.
“To the weary you have given no water to drink,
And from the hungry you have withheld bread.
“But the earth belongs to the mighty man,
And the honorable man dwells in it.
“You have sent widows away empty,
And the [c]strength of the orphans has been crushed.
10 “Therefore snares surround you,
And sudden dread terrifies you,
11 Or darkness, so that you cannot see,
And an abundance of water covers you.
