Job 15:20-26

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 15

20 The wicked person writhes in pain all his days, And the years reserved for the ruthless are numbered. 21 Sounds of terror are in his ears; While he is at peace the destroyer comes upon him. 22 He does not believe that he will return from darkness, And he is destined for the sword. 23 He wanders about for food, saying, ‘Where is it?’ He knows that a day of darkness is at hand. 24 Distress and anguish terrify him, They overpower him like a king ready for the attack, 25 Because he has reached out with his hand against God, And is arrogant toward the Almighty. 26 He rushes headlong at Him With his massive shield.
King James Version

Chapter 15

20 The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor. 21 A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. 22 He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword. 23 He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. 24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. 25 For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty. 26 He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers:
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 15

20 A wicked person writhes in pain all his days, throughout the number of years reserved for the ruthless. 21 Dreadful sounds fill his ears; when he is at peace, a robber attacks him. 22 He doesn't believe he will return from darkness; he is destined for the sword. 23 He wanders about for food, asking, "Where is it? " He knows the day of darkness is at hand. 24 Trouble and distress terrify him, overwhelming him like a king prepared for battle. 25 For he has stretched out his hand against God and has arrogantly opposed the Almighty. 26 He rushes headlong at him with his thick, studded shields.
New Living Translation

Chapter 15

20 'The wicked writhe in pain throughout their lives. Years of trouble are stored up for the ruthless. 21 The sound of terror rings in their ears, and even on good days they fear the attack of the destroyer. 22 They dare not go out into the darkness for fear they will be murdered. 23 They wander around, saying, 'Where can I find bread?' They know their day of destruction is near. 24 That dark day terrifies them. They live in distress and anguish, like a king preparing for battle. 25 For they shake their fists at God, defying the Almighty. 26 Holding their strong shields, they defiantly charge against him.
English Standard Version

Chapter 15

20 The wicked man writhes in pain all his days, through all the years that are laid up for the ruthless. 21 Dreadful sounds are in his ears; in prosperity the destroyer will come upon him. 22 He does not believe that he will return out of darkness, and he is marked for the sword. 23 He wanders abroad for bread, saying, ‘Where is it?’ He knows that a day of darkness is ready at his hand; 24 distress and anguish terrify him; they prevail against him, like a king ready for battle. 25 Because he has stretched out his hand against God and defies the Almighty, 26 running stubbornly against him with a thickly bossed shield;
New International Version

Chapter 15

20 All his days the wicked man suffers torment, the ruthless man through all the years stored up for him. 21 Terrifying sounds fill his ears; when all seems well, marauders attack him. 22 He despairs of escaping the realm of darkness; he is marked for the sword. 23 He wanders about for food like a vulture; he knows the day of darkness is at hand. 24 Distress and anguish fill him with terror; troubles overwhelm him, like a king poised to attack, 25 because he shakes his fist at God and vaunts himself against the Almighty,
26 defiantly charging against him with a thick, strong shield.

Chapter 15

20 Todos sus días el impío se retuerce de dolor, y contados están los años reservados para el tirano. 21 Ruidos de espanto hay en sus oídos, mientras está en paz, el destructor viene sobre él. 22 El no cree que volverá de las tinieblas, y que está destinado para la espada. 23 Vaga en busca de pan, diciendo: “¿Dónde está?” Sabe que es inminente el día de las tinieblas. 24 La ansiedad y la angustia lo aterran, lo dominan como rey dispuesto para el ataque; 25 porque él ha extendido su mano contra Dios, y se porta con soberbia contra el Todopoderoso. 26 Corre contra El con cuello erguido, con su escudo macizo ;

Chapter 15

20 El impío se ve atormentado toda la vida, el desalmado tiene sus años contados. 21 Sus oídos perciben sonidos espantosos; cuando está en paz, los salteadores lo atacan. 22 No espera escapar de las tinieblas; condenado está a morir a filo de espada. 23 Vaga sin rumbo; es comida de los buitres; sabe que el día de las tinieblas le ha llegado. 24 La desgracia y la angustia lo llenan de terror; lo abruman como si un rey fuera a atacarlo, 25 y todo por levantar el puño contra Dios y atreverse a desafiar al Todopoderoso. 26 Contra Dios se lanzó desafiante, blandiendo grueso y resistente escudo.
Reina-Valera 1960

Chapter 15

20 Todos sus días, el impío es atormentado de dolor, Y el número de sus años está escondido para el violento. 21 Estruendos espantosos hay en sus oídos; En la prosperidad el asolador vendrá sobre él. 22 Él no cree que volverá de las tinieblas, Y descubierto está para la espada. 23 Vaga alrededor tras el pan, diciendo: ¿En dónde está? Sabe que le está preparado día de tinieblas. 24 Tribulación y angustia le turbarán, Y se esforzarán contra él como un rey dispuesto para la batalla, 25 Por cuanto él extendió su mano contra Dios, Y se portó con soberbia contra el Todopoderoso. 26 Corrió contra él con cuello erguido, Con la espesa barrera de sus escudos.
Biblia del Jubileo

Chapter 15

20 Todos los días del impío, él es atormentado de dolor, y el número de años es escondido al violento. 21 Estruendos espantosos hay en sus oídos; en la paz le vendrá quién lo asuele. 22 El no creerá que ha de volver de las tinieblas, y siempre está mirando al cuchillo. 23 Desasosegado viene a comer siempre, porque sabe que le está aparejado día de tinieblas. 24 Tribulación y angustia le asombrarán, y se esforzarán contra él como un rey apercibido para la batalla. 25 Por cuanto él extendió su mano contra Dios, y se esforzó contra el Todopoderoso, 26 él le acometerá en la cerviz, en lo grueso de las hombreras de sus escudos;
