Job 21:7-157 aWhy do the wicked live,
reach old age, and grow mighty in power?
8Their boffspring are established in their presence,
and their descendants before their eyes.
9Their houses are csafe from fear,
and dno rod of God is upon them.
10Their bull breeds without fail;
their cow calves and edoes not miscarry.
11They send out their flittle boys like a flock,
and their children dance.
12They sing to gthe tambourine and hthe lyre
and rejoice to the sound of ithe pipe.
13They jspend their days in prosperity,
and in kpeace they go down to lSheol.
14They say to God m‘Depart from us!
We do not desire the knowledge of your ways.
15 nWhat is the Almighty, that we should serve him?
And what oprofit do we get if we pray to him?’
