Job Chapter 18

18:1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered,

18:2 "How long will you hunt for words? Consider, and afterwards we will speak.

18:3 Why are we counted as animals, Which have become unclean in your sight?

18:4 You who tear yourself in your anger, Shall the earth be forsaken for you? Or shall the rock be removed out of its place?

18:5 "Yes, the light of the wicked shall be put out, The spark of his fire shall not shine.

18:6 The light shall be dark in his tent, His lamp above him shall be put out.

18:7 The steps of his strength shall be shortened, His own counsel shall cast him down.

18:8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he wanders into its mesh.

18:9 A snare shall take him by the heel; A trap shall lay hold on him.

18:10 A noose is hidden for him in the ground, A trap for him in the way.

18:11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, And shall chase him at his heels.

18:12 His strength shall be famished, Calamity shall be ready at his side.

18:13 The members of his body shall be devoured, The firstborn of death shall devour his members.

18:14 He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusts. He shall be brought to the king of terrors.

18:15 There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his. Sulfur shall be scattered on his habitation.

18:16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, Above shall his branch be cut off.

18:17 His memory shall perish from the earth. He shall have no name in the street.

18:18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world.

18:19 He shall have neither son nor grandson among his people, Nor any remaining where he sojourned.

18:20 Those who come after shall be astonished at his day, As those who went before were frightened.

18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous, This is the place of him who doesn't know God."
