Job 20:25 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
17 He shall not delight himself in streams,
Like to rivers and brooks of honey and cream.
18 Giving back that for which he laboured, he shall not swallow it;
He shall not rejoice according to the riches he hath gotten.
19 Because he cast down, let the destitute lie helpless;
He shall not, in case he hath seized a house, finish building it.
20 Because he knew no rest in his craving,
He shall not be able to rescue himself with what he most loveth.
As poets sing of the aurea aetas of the paradise-like primeval age: Flumina jam lactis, jam flumina nectaris ibant,
(Note: Ovid, Metam. i. 112, comp. Virgil, Ecl. iv. 30:
Et durae quercus sudabant roscida mella;
and Horace, Epod. xvi. 47
Mella cava manant ex ilice, montibus altis
Levis crepante lympha desilit pede.)

Dreadful sounds are in his ears; in prosperity the destroyer will come upon him.
his archers surround me. He slashes open my kidneys and does not spare; he pours out my gall on the ground.
Terrors frighten him on every side, and chase him at his heels.
He is torn from the tent in which he trusted and is brought to the king of terrors.
