Job 21:7-15

7 a  Why do the wicked live,
reach old age, and grow mighty in power?
8Their b  offspring are established in their presence,
and their descendants before their eyes.
9Their houses are c  safe from fear,
and d  no rod of God is upon them.
10Their bull breeds without fail;
their cow calves and e  does not miscarry.
11They send out their f  little boys like a flock,
and their children dance.
12They sing to g  the tambourine and h  the lyre
and rejoice to the sound of i  the pipe.
13They j  spend their days in prosperity,
and in k  peace they go down to l  Sheol.
14They say to God m  Depart from us!
We do not desire the knowledge of your ways.
15 n  What is the Almighty, that we should serve him?
And what o  profit do we get if we pray to him?’
