Job Chapter 18 (Index)

001  Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

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

003  Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?

004  He teareth himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?

005  Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

006  The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.

007  The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.

008  For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.

009  The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.

010  The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.

011  Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.

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

013  It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.

014  His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.

015  It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

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

017  His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.

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

019  He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.

020  They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.

021  Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.
