The King James Version Bible

Job 20:10-24

  1. His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.

  2. His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.

  3. Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue;

  4. Though he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:

  5. Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him.

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

  7. He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper's tongue shall slay him.

  8. He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter.

  9. 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.

  10. Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not;

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

  12. There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods.

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

  14. 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.

  15. He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through.
