18:1 And Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,
18:2 How long will ye hunt for words? Be intelligent, and then we will speak.
18:3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed stupid in your sight?
18:4 Thou that tearest thyself in thine anger, shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of its place?
18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the flame of his fire shall not shine.
18:6 The light shall become dark in his tent, and his lamp over him shall be put out.
18:7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.
18:8 For he is sent into the net by his own feet, and he walketh on the meshes;
18:9 The gin taketh [him] by the heel, the snare layeth hold on him;
18:10 A cord is hidden for him in the ground, and his trap in the way.
18:11 Terrors make him afraid on every side, and chase him at his footsteps.
18:12 His strength is hunger-bitten, and calamity is ready at his side.
18:13 The firstborn of death devoureth the members of his body; it will devour his members.
18:14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tent, and it shall lead him away to the king of terrors:
18:15 They who are none of his shall dwell in his tent; brimstone shall be showered upon his habitation:
18:16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off;
18:17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name on the pasture-grounds.
18:18 He is driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
18:19 He hath neither son nor grandson among his people, nor any remaining in the places of his sojourn.
18:20 They that come after shall be astonished at his day, as they that went before [them] were affrighted.
18:21 Surely, such are the dwellings of the unrighteous man, and such the place of him that knoweth not łGod.
