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.
