Job 18
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1Then Bildad, the Shuhite, answered and said,

2How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? Understand, and afterwards we will speak.

3Why are we counted as beasts? Are we vile in your sight?

4O thou that dost tear thy soul in thine anger; shall the earth be forsaken because of thee and shall the rocks be removed out of their place?

5The light of the wicked shall certainly be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

6The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his lamp shall be put out with him.

7The steps of his strength shall be cut down, and his own counsel shall cast him down.

8For a net shall be cast at his feet, and he shall walk upon a network.

9The snare shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.

10The cord is hidden in the ground and a trap for him in the way.

11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and his own feet shall drive him away.

12His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.

13They shall devour the protection of his skin; the firstborn of death shall devour his members.

14His confidence shall be rooted out of his tent, and he shall be brought to the king of terrors.

15He shall dwell in his tent, as if it were not his; brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

16His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above his branch shall be cut off.

17His memory shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the streets.

18He shall be driven from the light into the darkness and chased out of the world.

19He shall have neither son nor grandson among his people, nor any to succeed him in his dwellings.

20Those that come after him shall be dismayed at his day, as those that went before were overcome with fear.

21Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that does not know God.
