Job 4:18–21 — The New International Version (NIV)

18 If God places no trust in his servants,

if he charges his angels with error,

19 how much more those who live in houses of clay,

whose foundations are in the dust,

who are crushed more readily than a moth!

20 Between dawn and dusk they are broken to pieces;

unnoticed, they perish forever.

21 Are not the cords of their tent pulled up,

so that they die without wisdom?’

Job 4:18–21 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

18 Behold, he put no trust in his servants;

And his angels he charged with folly:

19 How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay,

Whose foundation is in the dust,

Which are crushed before the moth?

20 They are destroyed from morning to evening:

They perish for ever without any regarding it.

21 Doth not their excellency which is in them go away?

They die, even without wisdom.

Job 4:18–21 — New Living Translation (NLT)

18 “If God does not trust his own angels

and has charged his messengers with foolishness,

19 how much less will he trust people made of clay!

They are made of dust, crushed as easily as a moth.

20 They are alive in the morning but dead by evening,

gone forever without a trace.

21 Their tent-cords are pulled and the tent collapses,

and they die in ignorance.

Whose foundation is in the dust,

Who are crushed before a moth?

20 They are broken in pieces from morning till evening;

They perish forever, with no one regarding.

21 Does not their own excellence go away?

They die, even without wisdom.’

Job 4:18–21 — New Century Version (NCV)

18 God does not trust his angels;

he blames them for mistakes.

whose foundations are made of dust,

who can be crushed like a moth.

20 Between dawn and sunset many people are broken to pieces;

without being noticed, they die and are gone forever.

21 The ropes of their tents are pulled up,

and they die without wisdom.’

Whose foundation is in the dust,

Who are crushed before the moth!

20 Betwixt morning and evening they are destroyed:

They perish for ever without any regarding it.

21 Is not their tent-cord plucked up within them?

They die, and that without wisdom.

Job 4:18–21 — GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

18 “You see, God doesn’t trust his own servants, 

and he accuses his angels of making mistakes.

that have their foundation in the dust. 

Those houses can be crushed quicker than a moth! 

20 From morning to evening, they are shattered. 

They will disappear forever without anyone paying attention.

Won’t they die without wisdom?

They die without wisdom.

They die, but not in wisdom.’

Job 4:18–21 — New International Reader’s Version (1998) (NIrV)

18 God doesn’t trust those who serve him.

He even brings charges against his angels.

19 So he’ll certainly find fault with human beings.

After all, they are made out of dust.

They can be crushed more easily than a moth.

20 Between sunrise and sunset they are broken to pieces.

Nobody even notices. They disappear forever.

21 Like a tent that falls down, they get weak.

They die because they didn’t follow God’s wisdom.’ ”

Unobserved, they perish forever.

21 ‘Is not their tent-cord plucked up within them?

They die, yet without wisdom.’
