|New International Version (© 2011)|
Side by side they lie in the dust, and worms cover them both.
King James Bible
They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them.
American Standard Version
They lie down alike in the dust, And the worm covereth them.
Young's Literal Translation
Together -- on the dust they lie down, And the worm doth cover them over.
Job 21:26 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They shall lie down alike in the dust - Death levels all distinctions, and the grave makes all equal. There may be a difference in the grave itself; but the human corpse is the same in all. Splendid monuments enshrine corruption; but the sod must lie close and heavy upon the putrefying carcass, to prevent it from becoming the bane of the living.
