Job 20

The Second Speech of Zophar   (20:1-29)

Zophar responded to Job in impassioned and fierce language. He told Job that he must surely be aware of the end that awaits the wicked. Though the wicked may appear to prosper he will one day suddenly disappear forever and be remembered no more. At best, the prosperity of the wicked is short-lived.

The wicked will give up all of their ill-gotten gain. Sin, which is sweet in the mouth of the wicked, will turn into poison in his stomach. It will lead to his swift and certain destruction.

The wicked, whose eyes are never satisfied, will one day find himself under the judgment of God. He will be unable to escape and his iniquity will be uncovered before the world.
