Chapter 18

JOB.18:1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:
JOB.18:2 “How long till you put an end to words? Gain understanding, and afterward we will speak.
JOB.18:3 Why are we counted as beasts, And regarded as stupid in your sight?
JOB.18:4 You who tear yourself in anger, Shall the earth be forsaken for you? Or shall the rock be removed from its place?
JOB.18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, And the flame of his fire does not shine.
JOB.18:6 The light is dark in his tent, And his lamp beside him is put out.
JOB.18:7 The steps of his strength are shortened, And his own counsel casts him down.
JOB.18:8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he walks into a snare.
JOB.18:9 The net takes him by the heel, And a snare lays hold of him.
JOB.18:10 A noose is hidden for him on the ground, And a trap for him in the road.
JOB.18:11 Terrors frighten him on every side, And drive him to his feet.
JOB.18:12 His strength is starved, And destruction is ready at his side.
JOB.18:13 It devours patches of his skin; The firstborn of death devours his limbs.
JOB.18:14 He is uprooted from the shelter of his tent, And they parade him before the king of terrors.
JOB.18:15 They dwell in his tent who are none of his; Brimstone is scattered on his dwelling.
JOB.18:16 His roots are dried out below, And his branch withers above.
JOB.18:17 The memory of him perishes from the earth, And he has no name among the renowned.
JOB.18:18 He is driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world.
JOB.18:19 He has neither son nor posterity among his people, Nor any remaining in his dwellings.
JOB.18:20 Those in the west are astonished at his day, As those in the east are frightened.
JOB.18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, And this is the place of him who does not know God.”
