the portion
Job 20:29
This is the wicked man's lot from God, the inheritance God ordained for him.
Job 31:3
Doesn't disaster come to the wicked and misfortune to evildoers?
Psalm 11:6
He will rain burning coals and sulfur on the wicked; a scorching wind will be their portion.
Ecclesiastes 8:13
However, it will not go well with the wicked, and they will not lengthen their days like a shadow, for they are not reverent before God.
Isaiah 3:11
Woe to the wicked-- [it will go] badly [for them], for what they have done will be done to them.
2 Peter 2:9
then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,
the heritage
Job 15:20-35
A wicked man writhes in pain all his days; few years are stored up for the ruthless.
Dreadful sounds fill his ears; when he is at peace, a robber attacks him.
He doesn't believe he will return from darkness; he is destined for the sword.
He wanders about for food, [saying,] "Where is it?" He knows the day of darkness is at hand.
Trouble and distress terrify him, overwhelming him like a king prepared for battle.
For he has stretched out his hand against God and has arrogantly opposed the Almighty.
He rushes headlong at Him with his thick, studded shields.
Though his face is covered with fat and his waistline bulges with it,
he will dwell in ruined cities, in abandoned houses destined to become piles of rubble.
He will no longer be rich; his wealth will not endure. His possessions will not spread over the land.
He will not escape from the darkness; flames will wither his shoots, and he will depart by the breath of God's mouth.
Let him not put trust in worthless things, being led astray, for what he gets in exchange will prove worthless.
It will be accomplished before his time, and his branch will not flourish.
He will be like a vine that drops its unripe grapes and like an olive tree that sheds its blossoms.
For the company of the godless will be barren, and fire will consume the tents of those who offer bribes.
They conceive trouble and give birth to evil; their womb prepares deception.
Job 20:19-29
For he oppressed and abandoned the poor; he seized a house he did not build.
Because his appetite is never satisfied, he does not escape his desires.
Nothing is left for him to consume; therefore, his prosperity will not last.
At the height of his success distress will come to him; the full weight of misery will crush him.
When he fills his stomach, God will send His burning anger against him, raining [it] down on him while he is eating.
If he flees from an iron weapon, [an arrow from] a bronze bow will pierce him.
He pulls it out of his back, the flashing tip out of his liver. Terrors come over him.
Total darkness is reserved for his treasures. A fire unfanned [by human hands] will consume him; it will feed on what is left in his tent.
The heavens will expose his iniquity, and the earth will rise up against him.
The possessions in his house will be removed, flowing away on the day of God's anger.
This is the wicked man's lot from God, the inheritance God ordained for him.
Psalm 12:5
"Because of the oppression of the afflicted and the groaning of the poor, I will now rise up," says the LORD. "I will put in a safe place the one who longs for it."
Proverbs 22:22
Don't rob a poor man because he is poor, and don't crush the oppressed at the gate,
Proverbs 22:23
for the LORD will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them.
Malachi 3:5
"I will come to you in judgment, and I will be ready to witness against sorcerers and adulterers; against those who swear falsely; against those who oppress the widow and the fatherless, and cheat the wage earner; and against those who deny [justice to] the foreigner. They do not fear Me," says the LORD of Hosts.
James 5:4-6
Look! The pay that you withheld from the workers who reaped your fields cries out, and the outcry of the harvesters has reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts.
You have lived luxuriously on the land and have indulged yourselves. You have fattened your hearts for the day of slaughter.
You have condemned-- you have murdered-- the righteous man; he does not resist you.
