Job 21:23-26

One

dies in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet. His pails are full of milk. The marrow of his bones is moistened. Another dies in bitterness of soul, and never tastes of good. They lie down alike in the dust.
Job 21:23-26

Context

Job 21 [20.] Let his own eyes see his destruction.
Let him drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
For what does he care for his house after him,
when the number of his months is cut off?
“Shall any teach God knowledge,
since he judges those who are high?
One dies in his full strength,
being wholly at ease and quiet.
His pails are full of milk.
The marrow of his bones is moistened.
Another dies in bitterness of soul,
and never tastes of good.
They lie down alike in the dust.

The worm covers them.
“Behold, I know your thoughts,
the devices with which you would wrong me.
For you say, ‘Where is the house of the prince?
Where is the tent in which the wicked lived?’
Haven’t you asked wayfaring men?
Don’t you know their evidences,

Job 21 [30.] that the evil man is reserved to the day of calamity,
That they are led out to the day of wrath?
