Job 181 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, 2 How long will ye hunt for words? Consider, and afterwards we will speak. 3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, And are become unclean in your sight? 4 Thou that tearest thyself in thine anger, Shall the earth be forsaken for thee? Or shall the rock be removed out of its place? 5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, And the ▼ spark of his fire shall not shine. ▼
▼ 1) Or flame6 The light shall be dark in his tent, And his lamp ▼ above him shall be put out. ▼
▼ 1) Or beside7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, And his own counsel shall cast him down. 8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he walketh upon the toils. 9 A gin shall take him by the heel, And a snare shall lay hold on him. 10 A noose is hid for him in the ground, And a trap for him in the way. 11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, And shall chase him at his heels. 12 His strength shall be hunger-bitten, And calamity shall be ready ▼ at his side. ▼
▼ 1) Or for his halting13 The ▼ members of his body shall be devoured, Yea , the first-born of death shall devour his members. ▼
▼ 1) Heb bars of his skin14 He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusteth; And ▼ he shall be brought to the king of terrors. ▼
▼ 1) Heb it shall (or thou shalt ) bring him15 ▼ There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his: Brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation. ▼
▼ 1) Or It shall dwell in his tent, that it be no more his (or because it is none of his )16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, And above shall his branch ▼ be cut off. ▼
▼ 1) Or wither17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, And he shall have no name in the street. 18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world. 19 He shall have neither son nor son’s son among his people, Nor any remaining where he sojourned. 20 ▼ They that come after shall be astonished at his day, As they that went before ▼
▼ 2were affrighted. ▼
▼ 1) Or They that dwell in the west are…as they that well in the east are etc 2) Heb laid hold on horror21 Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous, And this is the place of him that knoweth not God.
