"Surely he will have no respite from his craving; he cannot save himself by his treasure.
King James Bible
Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.
American Standard Version
Because he knew no quietness within him, He shall not save aught of that wherein he delighteth.
Young's Literal Translation
For he hath not known ease in his belly. With his desirable thing he delivereth not himself.
Job 20:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly - I have already remarked that the word בטן beten, which we translate belly, often means in the sacred Scriptures the whole of the human trunk; the regions of the thorax and abdomen, with their contents; the heart, lungs, liver, etc., and consequently all the thoughts, purposes, and inclinations of the mind, of which those viscera were supposed to be the functionaries. The meaning seems to be, "He shall never be satisfied; he shall have an endless desire after secular good, and shall never be able to obtain what he covets."
