Geneva Study Bible
   1: Then Zophar the Naamathite answered,
   2: "Therefore do my thoughts give answer to me, Even by reason of my haste that is in me.
   3: I have heard the reproof which puts me to shame; The spirit of my understanding answers me.
   4: Don't you know this from old time, Since man was placed on earth,
   5: That the triumphing of the wicked is short, The joy of the godless but for a moment?
   6: Though his height mount up to the heavens, And his head reach to the clouds,
   7: Yet he shall perish forever like his own dung, Those who have seen him shall say, 'Where is he?'
   8: He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: Yes, he shall be chased away like a vision of the night.
   9: The eye which saw him shall see him no more, Neither shall his place any more see him.
   10: His children shall seek the favor of the poor. His hands shall give back his wealth.
   11: His bones are full of his youth, But youth shall lie down with him in the dust.
   12: "Though wickedness is sweet in his mouth, Though he hide it under his tongue,
   13: Though he spare it, and will not let it go, But keep it still within his mouth;
   14: Yet his food in his bowels is turned. It is cobra venom within him.
   15: He has swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again. God will cast them out of his belly.
   16: He shall suck cobra venom. The viper's tongue shall kill him.
   17: He shall not look at the rivers, The flowing streams of honey and butter.
   18: That for which he labored he shall restore, and shall not swallow it down; According to the substance that he has gotten, he shall not rejoice.
   19: For he has oppressed and forsaken the poor. He has violently taken away a house, and he shall not build it up.
   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 forth, 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."
