Bildad: God Punishes the Wicked

1And Bildad the Shuhite will answer and say,

2How long will ye set an end to words? Ye shall understand, and afterwards we will speak.

3Wherefore were we reckoned as cattle, and were unclean in your eyes?

4He rent his soul in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed from its place?

5Also the light of the unjust shall be extinguished, and the flame of his fire shall not shine;

6The light was darkened in his tent, and his lamp shall be extinguished for him.

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

8For he was cast into a net by his feet, and he will go about upon latticework.

9A snare shall lay hold upon the heel, the noose shall hold fast upon him.

10His gin being hid in the earth, and his snare upon the beaten path.

11Terrors made him afraid round about, and scattered him to his feet.

12His strength shall be hunger, and destruction being prepared at his side.

13It shall devour the bars of his skin: the first-born of death shall devour his bars.

14His confidence shall be plucked out from his tent, and it shall drive him to the king of terrors.

15It shall dwell in his tent, from not to him: brimstone shall be scattered upon his dwelling.

16From underneath, his roots shall be dried up, and from above, his harvest shall be cut off.

17His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and not a name to him upon a face without.

18They shall drive him out of light into darkness, and they shall exclude him from the habitable globe.

19No offspring to him, and no progeny among his people, and not a survivor in his dwellings.

20Others were astonished at his day, and the ancient took hold on shuddering.

21Also these the dwellings of evil, and this the place of him not knowing God.
