Job - Chapter 21
4 Is my complaint just about a fellow-mortal? I have good grounds to be perturbed!
9 The peace of their houses has nothing to fear, the rod that God wields is not for them.
11 They let their infants frisk like lambs, their children dance like deer.
13 They end their lives in happiness and go down in peace to Sheol.
16 Surely they have won their own prosperity, since God is kept so far from their plans?
17 Do we often see the light of the wicked put out, or disaster overtake him, or the retribution of God destroy his possessions,
19 So God is storing up punishment for his children? But the wicked himself should be punished, and should know it!
22 But who can teach wisdom to God, to him who is judge of those on high?
24 thighs padded with fat and the marrow in the bones good and moist.

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.
