New International Version
All his days the wicked man suffers torment, the ruthless man through all the years stored up for him.
King James Bible
The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.
Darby Bible Translation
All his days the wicked man is tormented, and numbered years are allotted to the violent.
World English Bible
the wicked man writhes in pain all his days, even the number of years that are laid up for the oppressor.
Young's Literal Translation
'All days of the wicked he is paining himself, And few years have been laid up for the terrible one.

The sense of the original, מתחולל mithcholel, is he torments himself: he is a true heautontimoreumenos, or self-tormentor; and he alone is author of his own sufferings, and of his own ruin.
