Job 18

1Then Bildad the Shuhite answered, and said, 2How long will ye hunt for words? Consider, and afterwards we will speak. 3Why are we counted as beasts, and have become unclean in your eyes? 4Thou who tear thyself in thine anger, shall the earth be forsaken for thee? Or shall the rock be removed out of its 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 tent, and his lamp above him shall be put out. 7The steps of his strength shall be restricted, and his own counsel shall cast him down. 8For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walks upon the toils. 9A trap shall take him by the heel. A snare shall lay hold on him. 10A noose is hid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way. 11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall chase him at his heels. 12His strength shall be weakened by hunger, and calamity shall be ready at his side. 13The members of his body shall be devoured. The firstborn of death shall devour his body-parts. 14He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusts, and he shall be brought to the king of terrors. 15There shall dwell in his tent that which 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 have neither son nor son's son among his people, nor any remaining where he sojourned. 20Those who come after shall be astonished at his day, as those who went before were frightened. 21Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous, and this is the place of him who does not know God.
