King James Bible - Job 11:20

But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.

World English Bible

But the eyes of the wicked shall fail. They shall have no way to flee. Their hope shall be the giving up of the spirit."

Douay-Rheims - Job 11:20

But the eyes of the wicked shall decay, and the way to escape shall fail them, and their hope the abomination of the soul.

Webster's Bible Translation

But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the expiration of the breath.

Original Hebrew

SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:20

Mas los ojos de los malos se consumirŠn, y no tendrŠn refugio; y su esperanza serŠ agonía del alma.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 11:20

Verse 20. The eyes of the
wicked shall fail ] They shall be continually looking out for help and deliverance; but their expectation shall be cut off.

And they shall not escape ] They shall receive the punishment due to their deserts; for God has his eye continually upon them. swnmw Ķhnm dba umanos abad minnehem, literally, "And escape perishes from them." Flight from impending destruction is impossible.

And their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost. ] Ķtwqtw ćpn jpm vethikratham mappach naphesh, "And their hope an exhalation of breath," or a mere wish of the mind. They retain their hope to the last; and the last breath they breathe is the final and eternal termination of their hope. They give up their hope and their ghost together; for a vain hope cannot enter into that place where shadow and representation exist not; all being substance and reality. And thus endeth Zophar the Naamathite; whose premises were in general good, his conclusions legitimate, but his application of them to Job's case totally erroneous; because he still proceeded on the ground that Job was a wicked man, if not ostensibly, yet secretly; and that the sufferings he was undergoing were the means by which God was unmasking him to the view of men. But, allowing that Job had been a bad man, the exhortations of Zophar were well calculated to enforce repentance and excite confidence in the Divine mercy. Zophar seems to have had a full conviction of the all-governing providence of God; and that those who served him with an honest and upright heart would be ever distinguished in the distribution of temporal good. He seems however to think that rewards and punishments were distributed in this life, and does not refer, at least very evidently, to a future state. Probably his information on subjects of divinity did not extend much beyond the grave; and we have much cause to thank God for a clearer dispensation. Deus nobis haec otia fecit. God grant that we may make a good use of it!


Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 13-20 - Zophar exhorts Job to repentance, and gives him encouragement, ye mixed with hard thoughts of him. He thought that worldly prosperity wa always the lot of the righteous, and that Job was to be deemed hypocrite unless his prosperity was restored. Then shalt thou lift u thy face without spot; that is, thou mayst come boldly to the throne of grace, and not with the terror and amazement expressed in ch. 9:34. I we are looked upon in the face of the Anointed, our faces that wer cast down may be lifted up; though polluted, being now washed with the blood of Christ, they may be lifted up without spot. We may draw nea in full assurance of faith, when we are sprinkled from an evi conscience, Heb 10:22 __________________________________________________________________
