Job 21:14-16 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Leave Us Alone!
14 Those who are evil say
to God All-Powerful,
“Leave us alone! Don’t bother us
with your teachings.
15 What do we gain from praying
and worshiping you?
16 We succeeded all on our own.”
And so, I keep away from them
and their evil schemes.
Job 21:14-16 New International Version (NIV)
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?’
16 But their prosperity is not in their own hands,
so I stand aloof from the plans of the wicked.
