New International Version
They conceive trouble and give birth to evil; their womb fashions deceit."
King James Bible
They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit.
Darby Bible Translation
They conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity, and their belly prepareth deceit.
World English Bible
They conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. Their heart prepares deceit."
Young's Literal Translation
To conceive misery, and to bear iniquity, Even their heart doth prepare deceit.
Job 15:35 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They conceive mischief - The figure here is both elegant and impressive. The wicked conceive mischief, from the seed which Satan sows in their hearts; in producing which they travail with many pangs, (for sin is a sore labor), and at last their womb produces fraud or deception. This is an accursed birth, from an iniquitous conception. St. James gives the figure at full length, most beautifully touched in all its parts: When lust hath conceived it bringeth forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death; James 1:15 (note), where see the note. Poor Job! what a fight of affliction had he to contend with! His body wasted and tortured with sore disease; his mind harassed by Satan; and his heart wrung with the unkindness, and false accusations of his friends. No wonder he was greatly agitated, often distracted, and sometimes even thrown off his guard. However, all his enemies were chained; and beyond that chain they could not go. God was his unseen Protector, and did not suffer his faithful servant to be greatly moved.

How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?--Yea, the stars are not pure in his sight. How much less man, that is a worm? Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness?--Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts. As he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy; …

Necessity of Contemplating the Judgment-Seat of God, in Order to be Seriously Convinced of the Doctrine of Gratuitous Justification.
Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.
For hardship does not spring from the soil, nor does trouble sprout from the ground.
Then Job replied:
Whoever is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment.
for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble.
No one calls for justice; no one pleads a case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.
