Now Job was complaining that God did not rectify the injustices done to the poor. He was stating that those who rob the widows and orphans were allowed to continue day and night.
Verses 18-20 – Then Job adapts his argument to his friends view; that the wicked’s sudden demise will be their end.
Verses 21-24 – The gain that the wicked gain from preying on the helpless will not protect them against God’s power. Although they feel secure, God is not unaware of their deeds. They will experience short-lived success. Job acknowledges that God can and will judge. It just seems to be delayed.
