Job 20:5

That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
Read Chapter 20

Hesychius of Jerusalem

AD 433
In this passage Zophar speaks impudently and seriously insults Job. By scorning him, as the other two friends had already done, Zophar also defamed him for the following reason. After the beginning, after human beings came into existence, they felt “joy” and happiness in the fall “of the impious” and the “destruction of the iniquitous.” Zophar wants to include Job among them as well, according to what he says afterwards. Actually, forgetting that great number of people, Zophar addresses his words to a single person. - "Homilies on Job 24.20.5"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
