|New International Version (© 2011)|
All his days the wicked man suffers torment, the ruthless man through all the years stored up for him.
King James Bible
The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.
American Standard Version
The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, Even the number of years that are laid up for the oppressor.
Young's Literal Translation
'All days of the wicked he is paining himself, And few years have been laid up for the terrible one.
Job 15:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The wicked man travaileth with pain - This is a most forcible truth: a life of sin is a life of misery; and he that Will sin Must suffer. One of the Targums gives it a strange turn: - "All the days of the ungodly Esau, he was expected to repent, but he did not repent; and the number of years was hidden from the sturdy Ishmael." The sense of the original, מתחולל mithcholel, is he torments himself: he is a true heautontimoreumenos, or self-tormentor; and he alone is author of his own sufferings, and of his own ruin.
