Job 21:15-17 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

15 What is the Almighty,[a] that we should serve him?
    And what profit do we get if we pray to him?’
16 Is not their prosperity indeed their own achievement?[b]
    The plans of the wicked are repugnant to me.

17 “How often is the lamp of the wicked put out?
    How often does calamity come upon them?
    How often does God[c] distribute pains in his anger?
