Job 20:6–9 — The New International Version (NIV)

Though the pride of the godless person reaches to the heavens

and his head touches the clouds,

he will perish forever, like his own dung;

those who have seen him will say, ‘Where is he?’

Like a dream he flies away, no more to be found,

banished like a vision of the night.

The eye that saw him will not see him again;

his place will look on him no more.

They which have seen him shall say, Where is he?

He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found:

Yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.

The eye also which saw him shall see him no more;

Neither shall his place any more behold him.

yet they will vanish forever,

thrown away like their own dung.

They will vanish like a vision in the night.

Those who once saw them will see them no more.

Their families will never see them again.

Yes, he will be chased away like a vision of the night.

The eye that saw him will see him no more,

Nor will his place behold him anymore.

the places where they lived will see them no more.

His home will not look at him again.
