14Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. 15What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? 16Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me. 17How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.18They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away. 19God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it. 20His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
