New Living Translation
"They will not escape the darkness. The burning sun will wither their shoots, and the breath of God will destroy them.
King James Bible
He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.
Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
He turneth not aside from darkness, His tender branch doth a flame dry up, And he turneth aside at the breath of His mouth!
Job 15:30 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
15:30 Depart - His misery shall have no end. Flame - God's anger and judgment upon him. Branches - His wealth, and power, and glory, wherewith he was encompassed, as trees are with their branches.

They wander around, saying, 'Where can I find bread?' They know their day of destruction is near.
For the godless are barren. Their homes, enriched through bribery, will burn.
Their roots will dry up, and their branches will wither.
Their treasures will be thrown into deepest darkness. A wildfire will devour their goods, consuming all they have left.
