Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes.
King James Bible
Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
American Standard Version
Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied; And the eyes of man are never satisfied.
Young's Literal Translation
Sheol and destruction are not satisfied, And the eyes of man are not satisfied.
Proverbs 27:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Hell and destruction are never full - How hideous must the soul of a covetous man be, when God compares it to hell and perdition!
The eyes of man are never satisfied - As the grave can never be filled up with bodies, nor perdition with souls; so the restless desire, the lust of power, riches, and splendor, is never satisfied. Out of this ever unsatisfied desire spring all the changing fashions, the varied amusements, and the endless modes of getting money, prevalent in every age, and in every country.
