New International Version
Surely our foes are destroyed, and fire devours their wealth.'
King James Bible
Whereas our substance is not cut down, but the remnant of them the fire consumeth.
Darby Bible Translation
Is not he who rose against us destroyed, and doth not the fire consume his residue?
World English Bible
saying, 'Surely those who rose up against us are cut off. The fire has consumed the remnant of them.'
Young's Literal Translation
'Surely our substance hath not been cut off, And their excellency hath fire consumed.'
Job 22:20 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Whereas our substance is not cut down - We, who fear the Lord, still continue in health and peace; whereas they who have departed from him are destroyed even to their very remnant. Mr. Good thinks that קימנו kimanu, which we translate our substance, is the same as the Arabic (Arabic) our people or tribe; and hence he translates the clause thus: "For our tribe is not cut off; while even the remnant of these a conflagration consumed." The reference here is supposed to be to the destruction of the men of Sodom and Gomorrah. A judgment by a flood took off the world of the ungodly in the days of Noah. Their remnant, those who lived in the same ungodly way, were taken off by a judgment of fire, in the days of Lot. Eliphaz introduces these two examples in order to terrify Job into a compliance with the exhortation which immediately follows.

This is the true God, and eternal …

Epistle xxxix. To Eulogius, Patriarch of Alexandria.
Does he not regard us as foreigners? Not only has he sold us, but he has used up what was paid for us.
He will not escape the darkness; a flame will wither his shoots, and the breath of God's mouth will carry him away.
