Job 21:15-17 Good News Translation (GNT)

15 They think there is no need to serve God
    nor any advantage in praying to him.
16 They claim they succeed by their own strength,
    but their way of thinking I can't accept.

17 Was a wicked person's light ever put out?
    Did one of them ever meet with disaster?
Did God ever punish the wicked in anger

Job 21:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

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.

17 “Yet how often is the lamp of the wicked snuffed out?
    How often does calamity come upon them,
    the fate God allots in his anger?
