Job 21:19 God layeth up his iniquity for his children:
he rewardeth him, and he shall know it.
Know it to his cost. Vexation shall give understanding; he that, before this judgment came,
would know nothing of the bitter effect of sin upon him and his,
now hath his eyes forced open (as the blind mole is said to have by the pangs of death), and cry out with the lion in the snare, Si praescivissem, Oh! if I had foreknown the mischief, &c.
The wicked are wise too late; the fool passeth on and is punished; he knows not the evil of sin till he feels it.
