  • 1Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
  • 2How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak.
  • 3Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?
  • 4He teareth himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?
  • 5Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.
  • 6The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.
  • 7The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.
  • 8For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.
  • 9The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.
  • 10The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.
  • 11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.
  • 12His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.
  • 13It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.
  • 14His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.
  • 15It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
  • 16His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.
  • 17His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.
  • 18He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
  • 19He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.
  • 20They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.
  • 21Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.
