Bildad reproveth Job of presumption and impatience.
Job 18:1 Then responded Bildad the Shuhite, and said: Job 18:2 How long will ye make a perversion of words? Ye should understand, and, afterwards, we could speak. Job 18:3 Wherefore are we accounted like beasts? or appear stupid, in thine eyes? Job 18:4 One tearing in pieces his own soul in his anger,For thy sake, shall the earth be forsaken? or the rock be moved out of its place?
The calamities of the wicked.
Job 18:5 Even the light of the lawless, shall go out,Neither shall shine the flame of his fire; Job 18:6 The light, hath darkened in his tent, Yea, his lamp above him, goeth out; Job 18:7 The steppings of his strength are hemmed in, and his own counsel casteth him down; Job 18:8 For he is thrust into a net by his own feet, and, upon a trap, he marcheth; Job 18:9 There catcheth himby the heela gin, there holdeth him fasta noose: Job 18:10 Concealed in the ground is a cord for him,and a snare for him, on the path. Job 18:11 Round about, terrors have startled him, and have driven him to his feet. Job 18:12 Let his strength be famished, and, calamity, be ready at his side; Job 18:13 Let it devour the members of his body, Let the firstborn of death devour his members; Job 18:14 Uprooted, out of his tent, be his confidence, and let it drive him down to the king of terrors; Job 18:15 There shall dwell in his tent, what is naught-of-his, Let brimstone be strewed over his dwelling; Job 18:16 Beneath, let his roots be dried up, and, above, be cut off his branch; Job 18:17 His memorial, have perished out of the land, and let him have no name over the face of the open field; Job 18:18 Let them thrust him out of light into darkness, Yea, out of the world, let them chase him; Job 18:19 Let him have neither scion nor seed among his people, neither any survivor in his place of sojourn: Job 18:20 Over his day, have they been astounded who come behind, and, them who are in advance, a shudder hath seized. Job 18:21 Surely, these, are the dwellings of him that is perverse, and, this, is the place of him that knoweth not GOD.
