Job 21:13-15 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

13 They lead in goods (all) their days; and in a point, (or suddenly,) they go down to hells, that is, to burials, or the grave. (They get good things for themselves all their days; and then, in a moment, that is, without pain, or suffering, they go down to Sheol, in peace.)

14 Which men said to God, Go thou away from us; we desire not the knowing of thy ways. (And they said to God, Go thou away from us; we do not desire to know of thy ways.)

15 Who is Almighty God, that we serve him? and what profiteth it to us, if we pray (to) him?

Job 21:13-15 New International Version (NIV)

13 They spend their years in prosperity
    and go down to the grave in peace.[a]
14 Yet they say to God, ‘Leave us alone!
    We have no desire to know your ways.
15 Who is the Almighty, that we should serve him?
    What would we gain by praying to him?’
