Bildad Speaks
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:1 -

Then Bildad the Shuhite replied:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:2 -

How long until you stop talking?

Show some sense, and then we can talk.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:3 -

Why are we regarded as cattle,

as stupid in your sight?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:4 -

You who tear yourself in anger[fn] —

should the earth be abandoned on your account,

or a rock be removed from its place?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:5 -

Yes, the light of the wicked is extinguished;

the flame of his fire does not glow.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:6 -

The light in his tent grows dark,

and the lamp beside him is put out.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:7 -

His powerful stride is shortened,

and his own schemes trip him up.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:8 -

For his own feet lead him into a net,

and he strays into its mesh.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:9 -

A trap catches him by the heel;

a noose seizes him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:10 -

A rope lies hidden for him on the ground,

and a snare waits for him along the path.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:11 -

Terrors frighten him on every side

and harass him at every step.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:12 -

His strength is depleted;

disaster lies ready for him to stumble.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:13 -

Parts of his skin are eaten away;

death’s firstborn consumes his limbs.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:14 -

He is ripped from the security of his tent

and marched away to the king of terrors.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:15 -

Nothing he owned remains in his tent.

Burning sulfur is scattered over his home.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:16 -

His roots below dry up,

and his branches above wither away.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:17 -

All memory of him perishes from the earth;

he has no name anywhere.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:18 -

He is driven from light to darkness

and chased from the inhabited world.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:19 -

He has no children or descendants among his people,

no survivor where he used to live.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:20 -

Those in the west are appalled at his fate,

while those in the east tremble in horror.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 18:21 -

Indeed, such is the dwelling of the unjust man,

and this is the place of the one who does not know God.

Lit He who tears himself in his anger
Or disaster hungers for him
Or name in the streets
