The Webster Bible
Job, Chapter 8

   1: Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
   2: How long wilt thou speak these [things]? and [how long shall] the words of thy mouth [be like] a strong wind?
   3: Doth God pervert judgment; or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
   4: If thy children have sinned against him, and he hath cast them away for their transgression;
   5: If thou wouldst seek to God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;
   6: If thou [wert] pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
   7: Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end would greatly increase.
   8: For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
   9: (For we [are but of] yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth [are] a shadow:)
   10: Will they not teach thee, [and] tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?
   11: Can the rush grow without mire? can the flag grow without water?
   12: Whilst it [is] yet in its greenness, [and] not cut down, it withereth before any [other] herb.
   13: So [are] the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:
   14: Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust [shall be] a spider's web.
   15: He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
   16: He [is] green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.
   17: His roots are wrapped about the heap, [and] seeth the place of stones.
   18: If he shall destroy him from his place, then [it] shall deny him, [saying], I have not seen thee.
   19: Behold, this [is] the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.
   20: Behold, God will not cast away a perfect [man], neither will he help the evil doers:
   21: Till he shall fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.
   22: They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to naught.
