- ¶ THEN Bildad, the Shuhite, answered and said,
- How long will you resist words?
and afterwards we will speak.
- Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and have become abominable in your sight?
O you who slays himself in his anger?
- Shall the earth be forsaken for your sake?
And shall the mountain be removed out of its place?
- ¶ Yea, the lamp of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.
- The light shall be dark in his tent, and his lamp above him shall be extinguished.
- He shall be deserted in his illness, and his own counsel shall cast him down.
- For he has stretched out his feet into the net, and lie walks upon a snare.
- The trap seizes him by the heel, and thirst shall prevail against him.
- A snare is laid for him on the ground, and a trap for him in his paths.
- ¶ Terror shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.
- Let famine be his grief, let destruction be ready for his posterity.
- Let force devour his towns, let his first-born die in violence.
- His confidence shall be rooted out of his tent, and he shall be brought hastily by the king’s executioner.
- Others shall dwell in his tent, because there is no one in it;
brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
- His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his vintage be cut off.
- His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name upon it.
- He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
- He shall neither have name nor remembrance among the people, nor any survivor in his dwelling place.
- They that come after him shall be astonished at his day, as they that went before them were terrified.
- Surely such is the dwelling of the wicked, and this is the place of him who knows not God.
