Second Speech of Bildad
18:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
18:2 How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark,
and afterwards we will speak.
18:3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile
in your sight?
18:4 He teareth himself in his anger: shall the earth be
forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his
18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the
spark of his fire shall not shine.
18:6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his
candle shall be put out with him.
18:7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his
own counsel shall cast him down.
18:8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he
walketh upon a snare.
18:9 The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber
shall prevail against him.
18:10 The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap
for him in the way.
18:11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and
shall drive him to his feet.
18:12 His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction
shall be ready at his side.
18:13 It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the
firstborn of death shall devour his strength.
18:14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle,
and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.
18:15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none
of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
18:16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall
his branch be cut off.
18:17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and 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 neither have son nor nephew among his
people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.
18:20 They that come after him shall be astonied at his
day, as they that went before were affrighted.
18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this
is the place of him that knoweth not God.
