|New International Version (© 2011)|
However many his children, their fate is the sword; his offspring will never have enough to eat.
King James Bible
If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
American Standard Version
If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword; And his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
Young's Literal Translation
If his sons multiply -- for them is a sword. And his offspring are not satisfied with bread.
Job 27:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If his children be multiplied - As numerous families were supposed to be a proof of the benediction of the Almighty, Job shows that this is not always the case; for the offspring of the wicked shall be partly cut off by violent deaths, and partly reduced to great poverty.
