Proverbs 27:20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 Sheol and Abaddon can never be satisfied;
    so the eyes of mortals can never be satisfied.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 27:20 Sheol, the underworld abode of the dead, is personified as a force that is never satisfied and always desires more. Cf. Is 5:14 and Hos 13:14. The saying is applicable to modern consumerism.
