Job 27:15

Hebrew Bible

13 This is the portion of the wicked man allotted by God, the inheritance that evildoers receive from the Almighty. 14 If his children increase—it is for the sword! His offspring never have enough to eat. 15 Those who survive him are buried by the plague, and their widows do not mourn for them. 16 If he piles up silver like dust and stores up clothing like mounds of clay, 17 what he stores up a righteous man will wear, and an innocent man will inherit his silver.

Ezekiel 6:12

Hebrew Bible

10 They will know that I am the Lord; my threats to bring this catastrophe on them were not empty. 11 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Clap your hands, stamp your feet, and say, “Ah!” because of all the evil, abominable practices of the house of Israel, for they will fall by the sword, famine, and pestilence. 12 The one far away will die by pestilence, the one close by will fall by the sword, and whoever is left and has escaped these will die by famine. I will fully vent my rage against them. 13 Then you will know that I am the Lord when their dead lie among their idols around their altars, on every high hill and on all the mountaintops, under every green tree and every leafy oak—the places where they have offered fragrant incense to all their idols. 14 I will stretch out my hand against them and make the land a desolate waste from the wilderness to Riblah, in all the places where they live. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’”
