"His sons achieve honor, but he does not know it; Or they become insignificant, but he does not perceive it.
King James Bible
His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them.
Darby Bible Translation
His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, and he perceiveth it not.
World English Bible
His sons come to honor, and he doesn't know it. They are brought low, but he doesn't perceive it of them.
Young's Literal Translation
Honoured are his sons, and he knoweth not; And they are little, and he attendeth not to them.
Job 14:21 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not - He is unacquainted with what is passing on the earth. Even should that occur which is most gratifying to a parent's heart; should his children rise to stations of honor and influence, he would not be permitted to enjoy the happiness which every father feels when his sons do well. This is suggested as one of the evils of death.
They are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them - He is not permitted to sympathize with them, or to sustain them in their trials. This is another of the evils of death. When his children need his counsel and advice, he is not permitted to give it. He is taken away from his family, and revisits them no more.

"They are exalted a little while, then they are gone; Moreover, they are brought low and like everything gathered up; Even like the heads of grain they are cut off.

For the living know they will die; but the dead do not know anything, nor have they any longer a reward, for their memory is forgotten.
