018:020:001
Then answered Zophar the Naamathite,
and said,


018:020:002
Therefore do my thoughts cause me to answer,
and for this I make haste.


018:020:003
I have heard the check of my reproach,
and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer.


018:020:004
Knowest thou not this of old,
since man was placed upon earth,


018:020:005
That the triumphing of the wicked is short,
and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?


018:020:006
Though his excellency mount up to the heavens,
and his head reach unto the clouds;


018:020:007
Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung:
they which have seen him shall say,
Where is he?


018:020:008
He shall fly away as a dream,
and shall not be found:
yea,
he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.


018:020:009
The eye also which saw him shall see him no more;
neither shall his place any more behold him.


018:020:010
His children shall seek to please the poor,
and his hands shall restore their goods.


018:020:011
His bones are full of the sin of his youth,
which shall lie down with him in the dust.


018:020:012
Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth,
though he hide it under his tongue;


018:020:013
Though he spare it,
and forsake it not;
but keep it still within his mouth:


018:020:014
Yet his meat in his bowels is turned,
it is the gall of asps within him.


018:020:015
He hath swallowed down riches,
and he shall vomit them up again:
God shall cast them out of his belly.


018:020:016
He shall suck the poison of asps:
the viper's tongue shall slay him.


018:020:017
He shall not see the rivers,
the floods,
the brooks of honey and butter.


018:020:018
That which he laboured for shall he restore,
and shall not swallow it down:
according to his substance shall the restitution be,
and he shall not rejoice therein.


018:020:019
Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor;
because he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not;


018:020:020
Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly,
he shall not save of that which he desired.


018:020:021
There shall none of his meat be left;
therefore shall no man look for his goods.


018:020:022
In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits:
every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.


018:020:023
When he is about to fill his belly,
God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him,
and shall rain it upon him while he is eating.


018:020:024
He shall flee from the iron weapon,
and the bow of steel shall strike him through.


018:020:025
It is drawn,
and cometh out of the body;
yea,
the glittering sword cometh out of his gall:
terrors are upon him.


018:020:026
All darkness shall be hid in his secret places:
a fire not blown shall consume him;
it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.


018:020:027
The heaven shall reveal his iniquity;
and the earth shall rise up against him.


018:020:028
The increase of his house shall depart,
and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath.


018:020:029
This is the portion of a wicked man from God,
and the heritage appointed unto him by God.
