1 Zophar of Naamath spoke next. He said:
Job 2:11  Job 11:1  Job 42:9 

2 My thoughts urge me to reply to this, and hence the impatience that grips me.
Eccl 7:9  Jas 1:19  Jer 20:9  Job 4:2  Job 13:19  Job 20:3  Job 32:13-20 

3 I have put up with prating that outrages me and now my mind inspires me with an answer.
Job 19:3  Job 19:29  Job 20:2  Job 27:11  Job 33:3  Ps 49:3  Ps 78:2-5 

4 Do you not know, that since time began and human beings were set on the earth,
Gen 1:28  Gen 9:1-3  Job 8:8-9  Job 15:10  Job 32:7  Ps 115:16 

5 the triumph of the wicked has always been brief, and the sinner's gladness has never lasted long?
Ps 37:35-36  Acts 12:22-23  Esth 5:11-12  Esth 7:10  Exod 15:9-10  Gal 6:4  Jas 4:16 

6 Towering to the sky he may have been, his head touching the clouds;
Isa 14:13-14  Obad 1:3-4  Gen 11:4  Amos 9:2  Dan 4:11  Dan 4:22  Matt 11:23 

7 but he vanishes, like a phantom, once for all, while those who used to see him, ask, 'Where is he?'
1Kgs 14:10  2Kgs 9:37  Job 14:10  Ps 83:10  Jer 8:2  Job 4:20  Job 7:10 

8 Like a dream that leaves no trace he takes his flight, like a vision in the night he flies away.
Ps 73:20  Ps 90:5  Isa 29:7-8  Job 18:18  Job 27:21-23  Ps 18:10 

9 The eye accustomed to see him sees him no more, his home will never set eyes on him again.
Job 7:8  Job 7:10  Job 8:18  Ps 37:10  Ps 37:36  Job 20:7  Job 27:3 

10 His sons will have to reimburse the poor and his children pay back his riches.
Job 20:18  Job 27:16-17  Luke 19:8  2Sam 12:6  Exod 9:2  Exod 12:36  Exod 22:1 

11 His bones used to be full of youthful vigour: and there it lies, in the dust with him, now!
Job 21:26  Job 13:26  Ps 25:7  Acts 1:25  Ezek 24:13  Ezek 32:27  Job 19:20 

12 Evil was sweet to his mouth, he would shelter it under his tongue;
Job 15:16  Ps 10:7  Eccl 11:9  Gen 3:6  Ps 109:17-18  Prov 9:17-18  Prov 20:17 

13 cultivating it carefully, he would let it linger on his palate.
Mark 9:43-49  Matt 5:29-30  Num 11:18-20  Rom 8:13 

14 Such food goes bad in his belly, working inside him like the poison of a viper.
2Sam 11:2-5  2Sam 12:10-11  Deut 32:24  Jer 2:19  Job 20:16  Mal 2:2  Ps 32:3-4 

15 Now he has to vomit up the wealth that he has swallowed, God makes him disgorge it.
Prov 23:8  Matt 27:3-4 

16 He used to suck vipers' venom, and the tongue of the adder kills him.
Acts 28:3-6  Deut 32:24  Isa 30:6  Matt 3:7  Rom 3:13 

17 No more will he know the streams of oil or the torrents of honey and cream.
Deut 32:13-14  Job 29:6  2Kgs 7:2  2Sam 17:29  Isa 7:15  Isa 7:22  Isa 41:17 

18 When he gives back his winnings, his cheerfulness will fade, and the satisfied air he had when business was thriving.
Job 20:10  Job 20:15  Amos 8:4  Ezek 7:12  Hos 8:7-8  Hos 9:1  Isa 24:7-11 

19 Since he once destroyed the huts of the poor, plundering houses instead of building them up,
Job 35:9  Prov 14:31  1Kgs 21:19  1Sam 12:3-4  Amos 4:1-3  Deut 28:33  Eccl 4:1 

20 since his avarice could never be satisfied, now all his hoarding will not save him;
Eccl 5:13-14  Isa 57:20-21 

21 since nothing could escape his greed, his prosperity will not last.
Jer 17:11  Job 15:29  Job 18:19  Luke 16:24-25 

22 When he has everything he needs, want will seize him, and misery will light on him with all its force.
2Kgs 24:2  Eccl 2:18-20  Isa 10:6  Job 1:15  Job 1:17  Job 3:17  Job 15:29 

23 On him God looses all his burning wrath, hurling against his flesh a hail of arrows.
Ps 78:30-31  Num 11:33  Exod 9:23  Gen 19:24  Isa 21:4  Luke 12:17-20  Mal 2:2 

24 If he escapes the weapons of iron, the bow of bronze will transfix him.
Amos 5:19  Isa 24:18  2Sam 22:35  1Kgs 20:30  Amos 9:1-3  Jer 48:43-44  Prov 7:23 

25 Out of his back sticks an arrow, from his gall a shining point. The terrors advance on him,
Job 16:13  Job 18:11  Deut 32:41  2Cor 5:11  2Sam 18:14  Jer 20:3-4  Job 6:4 

26 all the hidden darknesses are waiting to carry him off. A fire unlit by human hand devours him, and consumes what is left in his tent.
Ps 21:9  Isa 8:22  Isa 14:20-22  Isa 30:33  Job 18:5-6  Job 18:18-19  Jude 1:13 

27 The heavens lay bare his iniquity, and the earth rises up against him.
Isa 26:21  Job 16:18  1Cor 4:5  Deut 31:28  Jer 29:23  Job 18:18  Luke 12:2-3 

28 The income of his house pours away, like the torrents, on the day of retribution.
2Kgs 20:17  Deut 28:31  Jas 5:1-3  Job 5:5  Job 20:10  Job 20:18-22  Job 21:30 

29 Such is the fate God reserves for the wicked, the inheritance he assigns to the accursed!
Job 27:13  Job 31:2-3  Job 18:21  Deut 29:20-28  Lam 3:38  Matt 24:51  Ps 11:5-6
