The Darby Bible
Job, Chapter 18

   1: And Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,
   2: How long will ye hunt for words? Be intelligent, and then we will speak.
   3: Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed stupid in your sight?
   4: Thou that tearest thyself in thine anger, shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of its place?
   5: Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the flame of his fire shall not shine.
   6: The light shall become dark in his tent, and his lamp over him shall be put out.
   7: The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.
   8: For he is sent into the net by his own feet, and he walketh on the meshes;
   9: The gin taketh [him] by the heel, the snare layeth hold on him;
   10: A cord is hidden for him in the ground, and his trap in the way.
   11: Terrors make him afraid on every side, and chase him at his footsteps.
   12: His strength is hunger-bitten, and calamity is ready at his side.
   13: The firstborn of death devoureth the members of his body; it will devour his members.
   14: His confidence shall be rooted out of his tent, and it shall lead him away to the king of terrors:
   15: They who are none of his shall dwell in his tent; brimstone shall be showered upon his habitation:
   16: His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off;
   17: His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name on the pasture-grounds.
   18: He is driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
   19: He hath neither son nor grandson among his people, nor any remaining in the places of his sojourn.
   20: They that come after shall be astonished at his day, as they that went before [them] were affrighted.
   21: Surely, such are the dwellings of the unrighteous man, and such the place of him that knoweth not God.
