1Then Bildad the Shuhite replied: 1וַ֭יַּעַן בִּלְדַּ֥ד הַשֻּׁחִ֗י וַיֹּאמַֽר׃
2“How long until you end these speeches? Show some sense, and then we can talk. 2עַד־ אָ֤נָה ׀ תְּשִׂימ֣וּן קִנְצֵ֣י לְמִלִּ֑ין תָּ֝בִ֗ינוּ וְאַחַ֥ר נְדַבֵּֽר׃
3Why are we regarded as cattle, as stupid in your sight? 3מַ֭דּוּעַ נֶחְשַׁ֣בְנוּ כַבְּהֵמָ֑ה נִ֝טְמִ֗ינוּ בְּעֵינֵיכֶֽם׃
4You who tear yourself in anger— should the earth be forsaken on your account, or the rocks be moved from their place? 4טֹֽרֵ֥ף נַפְשׁ֗וֹ בְּאַ֫פּ֥וֹ הַ֭לְמַעַנְךָ תֵּעָ֣זַב אָ֑רֶץ וְיֶעְתַּק־ צ֝֗וּר מִמְּקֹמֽוֹ׃
5Indeed, the lamp of the wicked is extinguished; the flame of his fire does not glow. 5גַּ֤ם א֣וֹר רְשָׁעִ֣ים יִדְעָ֑ךְ וְלֹֽא־ יִ֝גַּ֗הּ שְׁבִ֣יב אִשּֽׁוֹ׃
6The light in his tent grows dark, and the lamp beside him goes out. 6א֭וֹר חָשַׁ֣ךְ בְּאָהֳל֑וֹ וְ֝נֵר֗וֹ עָלָ֥יו יִדְעָֽךְ׃
7His vigorous stride is shortened, and his own schemes trip him up. 7יֵֽ֭צְרוּ צַעֲדֵ֣י אוֹנ֑וֹ וְֽתַשְׁלִיכֵ֥הוּ עֲצָתֽוֹ׃
8For his own feet lead him into a net, and he wanders into its mesh. 8כִּֽי־ שֻׁלַּ֣ח בְּרֶ֣שֶׁת בְּרַגְלָ֑יו וְעַל־ שְׂ֝בָכָ֗ה יִתְהַלָּֽךְ׃
9A trap seizes his heel; a snare grips him. 9יֹאחֵ֣ז בְּעָקֵ֣ב פָּ֑ח יַחֲזֵ֖ק עָלָ֣יו צַמִּֽים׃
10A noose is hidden in the ground, and a trap lies in his path. 10טָמ֣וּן בָּאָ֣רֶץ חַבְל֑וֹ וּ֝מַלְכֻּדְתּ֗וֹ עֲלֵ֣י נָתִֽיב׃
11Terrors frighten him on every side and harass his every step. 11סָ֭בִיב בִּֽעֲתֻ֣הוּ בַלָּה֑וֹת וֶהֱפִיצֻ֥הוּ לְרַגְלָֽיו׃
12His strength is depleted, and calamity [is] ready at his side. 12יְהִי־ רָעֵ֥ב אֹנ֑וֹ וְ֝אֵ֗יד נָכ֥וֹן לְצַלְעֽוֹ׃
13It devours patches of his skin; the firstborn of death devours his limbs. 13יֹ֭אכַל בַּדֵּ֣י עוֹר֑וֹ יֹאכַ֥ל בַּ֝דָּ֗יו בְּכ֣וֹר מָֽוֶת׃
14He is torn from the shelter of his tent and is marched off to the king of terrors. 14יִנָּתֵ֣ק מֵ֭אָהֳלוֹ מִבְטַח֑וֹ וְ֝תַצְעִדֵ֗הוּ לְמֶ֣לֶךְ בַּלָּהֽוֹת׃
15Fire resides in his tent; brimstone is scattered over his home. 15תִּשְׁכּ֣וֹן בְּ֭אָהֳלוֹ מִבְּלִי־ ל֑וֹ יְזֹרֶ֖ה עַל־ נָוֵ֣הוּ גָפְרִֽית׃
16The roots beneath him dry up, and the branches above him wither away. 16מִ֭תַּחַת שָֽׁרָשָׁ֣יו יִבָ֑שׁוּ וּ֝מִמַּ֗עַל יִמַּ֥ל קְצִירֽוֹ׃
17The memory of him perishes from the earth, and he has no name in the land. 17זִֽכְרוֹ־ אָ֭בַד מִנִּי־ אָ֑רֶץ וְלֹא־ שֵׁ֥ם ל֝֗וֹ עַל־ פְּנֵי־ חֽוּץ׃
18He is driven from light into darkness and is chased from the inhabited world. 18יֶ֭הְדְּפֻהוּ מֵא֣וֹר אֶל־ חֹ֑שֶׁךְ וּֽמִתֵּבֵ֥ל יְנִדֻּֽהוּ׃
19He has no offspring or posterity among his people, no survivor where he once lived. 19לֹ֘א נִ֤ין ל֣וֹ וְלֹא־ נֶ֣כֶד בְּעַמּ֑וֹ וְאֵ֥ין שָׂ֝רִ֗יד בִּמְגוּרָֽיו׃
20Those in the west are appalled at his fate, while those in the east tremble in horror. 20עַל־ י֭וֹמוֹ נָשַׁ֣מּוּ אַחֲרֹנִ֑ים וְ֝קַדְמֹנִ֗ים אָ֣חֲזוּ שָֽׂעַר׃
21Surely such is the dwelling of the wicked, and this is the place of one who does not know God.” 21אַךְ־ אֵ֭לֶּה מִשְׁכְּנ֣וֹת עַוָּ֑ל וְ֝זֶ֗ה מְק֣וֹם לֹא־ יָדַֽע־ אֵֽל׃ ס
