Job 24 (WEBP)

[1] “Why aren’t times laid up by the Almighty? Why don’t those who know him see his days?
[2] There are people who remove the landmarks. They violently take away flocks, and feed them.
[3] They drive away the donkey of the fatherless, and they take the widow’s ox for a pledge.
[4] They turn the needy out of the way. The poor of the earth all hide themselves.
[5] Behold, as wild donkeys in the desert, they go out to their work, seeking diligently for food. The wilderness yields them bread for their children.
[6] They cut their food in the field. They glean the vineyard of the wicked.
[7] They lie all night naked without clothing, and have no covering in the cold.
[8] They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for lack of a shelter.
[9] There are those who pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor,
[10] so that they go around naked without clothing. Being hungry, they carry the sheaves.
[11] They make oil within the walls of these men. They tread wine presses, and suffer thirst.
[12] From out of the populous city, men groan. The soul of the wounded cries out, yet God doesn’t regard the folly.
[13] “These are of those who rebel against the light. They don’t know its ways, nor stay in its paths.
[14] The murderer rises with the light. He kills the poor and needy. In the night he is like a thief.
[15] The eye also of the adulterer waits for the twilight, saying, ‘No eye will see me.’ He disguises his face.
[16] In the dark they dig through houses. They shut themselves up in the daytime. They don’t know the light.
[17] For the morning is to all of them like thick darkness, for they know the terrors of the thick darkness.
[18] “They are foam on the surface of the waters. Their portion is cursed in the earth. They don’t turn into the way of the vineyards.
[19] Drought and heat consume the snow waters, so does Sheol° those who have sinned.
[20] The womb will forget him. The worm will feed sweetly on him. He will be no more remembered. Unrighteousness will be broken as a tree.
[21] He devours the barren who don’t bear. He shows no kindness to the widow.
[22] Yet God preserves the mighty by his power. He rises up who has no assurance of life.
[23] God gives them security, and they rest in it. His eyes are on their ways.
[24] They are exalted; yet a little while, and they are gone. Yes, they are brought low, they are taken out of the way as all others, and are cut off as the tops of the ears of grain.
[25] If it isn’t so now, who will prove me a liar, and make my speech worth nothing?”

Job 24:19 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Job 24 (KJVS)

[1] Why, seeing times H6256 are not hidden H6845 (8738) from the Almighty H7706, do they that know H3045 (8802) him not see H2372 (8804) his days H3117?
[2] [Some] remove H5381 (8686) the landmarks H1367; they violently take away H1497 (8804) flocks H5739, and feed H7462 (8799) [thereof].
[3] They drive away H5090 (8799) the ass H2543 of the fatherless H3490, they take H2254 the widow’s H490 ox H7794 for a pledge H2254 (8799).
[4] They turn H5186 (8686) the needy H34 out of the way H1870: the poor H6041 (8675) H6035 of the earth H776 hide H2244 (8795) themselves together H3162.
[5] Behold, [as] wild asses H6501 in the desert H4057, go they forth H3318 (8804) to their work H6467; rising betimes H7836 (8764) for a prey H2964: the wilderness H6160 [yieldeth] food H3899 for them [and] for [their] children H5288.
[6] They reap H7114 (8799) (8675) H7114 (8686) [every one] his corn H1098 in the field H7704: and they gather H3953 (8762) the vintage H3754 of the wicked H7563.
[7] They cause the naked H6174 to lodge H3885 (8686) without clothing H3830, that [they have] no covering H3682 in the cold H7135.
[8] They are wet H7372 (8799) with the showers H2230 of the mountains H2022, and embrace H2263 (8765) the rock H6697 for want of a shelter H4268.
[9] They pluck H1497 (8799) the fatherless H3490 from the breast H7699, and take a pledge H2254 (8799) of the poor H6041.
[10] They cause [him] to go H1980 (8765) naked H6174 without clothing H3830, and they take away H5375 (8804) the sheaf H6016 [from] the hungry H7457;
[11] [Which] make oil H6671 (8686) within H996 their walls H7791, [and] tread H1869 (8804) [their] winepresses H3342, and suffer thirst H6770 (8799).
[12] Men H4962 groan H5008 (8799) from out of the city H5892, and the soul H5315 of the wounded H2491 crieth out H7768 (8762): yet God H433 layeth H7760 (8799) not folly H8604 [to them].
[13] They are of those that rebel H4775 (8802) against the light H216; they know H5234 (8689) not the ways H1870 thereof, nor abide H3427 (8804) in the paths H5410 thereof.
[14] The murderer H7523 (8802) rising H6965 (8799) with the light H216 killeth H6991 (8799) the poor H6041 and needy H34, and in the night H3915 is as a thief H1590.
[15] The eye H5869 also of the adulterer H5003 (8802) waiteth H8104 (8804) for the twilight H5399, saying H559 (8800), No eye H5869 shall see H7789 (8799) me: and disguiseth H5643 H7760 (8799) [his] face H6440.
[16] In the dark H2822 they dig through H2864 (8804) houses H1004, [which] they had marked H2856 (8765) for themselves in the daytime H3119: they know H3045 (8804) not the light H216.
[17] For the morning H1242 [is] to them even as H3162 the shadow of death H6757: if [one] know H5234 (8686) [them, they are in] the terrors H1091 of the shadow of death H6757.
[18] He [is] swift H7031 as the waters H6440 H4325; their portion H2513 is cursed H7043 (8792) in the earth H776: he beholdeth H6437 (8799) not the way H1870 of the vineyards H3754.
[19] Drought H6723 and heat H2527 consume H1497 (8799) the snow H7950 waters H4325: [so doth] the grave H7585 [those which] have sinned H2398 (8804).
[20] The womb H7358 shall forget H7911 (8799) him; the worm H7415 shall feed sweetly H4988 (8804) on him; he shall be no more remembered H2142 (8735); and wickedness H5766 shall be broken H7665 (8735) as a tree H6086.
[21] He evil entreateth H7462 (8802) the barren H6135 [that] beareth H3205 (8799) not: and doeth not good H3190 (8686) to the widow H490.
[22] He draweth H4900 (8804) also the mighty H47 with his power H3581: he riseth up H6965 (8799), and no [man] is sure H539 (8686) of life H2416.
[23] [Though] it be given H5414 (8799) him [to be] in safety H983, whereon he resteth H8172 (8735); yet his eyes H5869 [are] upon their ways H1870.
[24] They are exalted H7426 (8804) for a little while H4592, but are gone and brought low H4355 (8717); they are taken out H7092 (8735) of the way H1870 as all [other], and cut off H5243 (8799) as the tops H7218 of the ears of corn H7641.
[25] And if [it be] not [so] now H645, who will make H7760 (8799) me a liar H3576 (8686), and make H7760 (8799) my speech H4405 nothing worth H408?

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 24 (YLT)

[1] Wherefore from the Mighty One Times have not been hidden, And those knowing Him have not seen His days.
[2] The borders they reach, A drove they have taken violently away, Yea, they do evil.
[3] The ass of the fatherless they lead away, They take in pledge the ox of the widow,
[4] They turn aside the needy from the way, Together have hid the poor of the earth.
[5] Lo, wild asses in a wilderness, They have gone out about their work, Seeking early for prey, A mixture for himself-food for young ones.
[6] In a field his provender they reap, And the vineyard of the wicked they glean.
[7] The naked they cause to lodge Without clothing. And there is no covering in the cold.
[8] From the inundation of hills they are wet, And without a refuge-have embraced a rock.
[9] They take violently away From the breast the orphan, And on the poor they lay a pledge.
[10] Naked, they have gone without clothing, And hungry-have taken away a sheaf.
[11] Between their walls they make oil, Wine-presses they have trodden, and thirst.
[12] Because of enmity men do groan, And the soul of pierced ones doth cry, And God doth not give praise.
[13] They have been among rebellious ones of light, They have not discerned His ways, Nor abode in His paths.
[14] At the light doth the murderer rise, He doth slay the poor and needy, And in the night he is as a thief.
[15] And the eye of an adulterer Hath observed the twilight, Saying, ‘No eye doth behold me.’ And he putteth the face in secret.
[16] He hath dug in the darkness-houses; By day they shut themselves up, They have not known light.
[17] When together, morning is to them death shade, When he discerneth the terrors of death shade.
[18] Light he is on the face of the waters, Vilified is their portion in the earth, He turneth not the way of vineyards.
[19] Drought-also heat-consume snow-waters, Sheol those who have sinned.
[20] Forget him doth the womb, Sweeten on him doth the worm, No more is he remembered, And broken as a tree is wickedness.
[21] Treating evil the barren who beareth not, And to the widow he doth no good,
[22] And hath drawn the mighty by his power, He riseth, and none believeth in life.
[23] He giveth to him confidence, and he is supported, And his eyes are on their ways.
[24] High they were for a little, and they are not, And they have been brought low. As all others they are shut up, And as the head of an ear of corn cut off.
[25] And if not now, who doth prove me a liar, And doth make of nothing my word?
