Job - Chapter 18
13 Disease devours his skin, Death's First-Born gnaws his limbs.
15 You can live in the tent, since it is no longer his, and brimstone will be scattered on his sheepfold.
17 His memory fades from the land, his name is forgotten in the countryside.
21 Such indeed is the fate of the places where wickedness dwells -- the home of everyone who knows not God.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
