Job, Chapter 18

18:1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,
18:2 How long will you+ hunt for words? Consider, and afterward we will speak.
18:3 Why are we counted as beasts, [And] have we become unclean in your+ sight?
18:4 You who tear your soul in your anger, Will the earth be forsaken for you? Or will the rock be removed out of its place?
18:5 Yes, the light of the wicked will be put out, And the spark of his fire will not shine.
18:6 The light will be dark in his tent, And his lamp above him will be put out.
18:7 The steps of his strength will be straitened, And his own counsel will cast him down.
18:8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he walks on the toils.
18:9 A trap will take [him] by the heel, [And] a snare will lay hold on him.
18:10 A noose is hid for him in the ground, And a trap for him in the way.
18:11 Terrors will make him afraid on every side, And will chase him at his heels.
18:12 His strength will be hunger-bitten, And calamity will be ready at his side.
18:13 The members of his body will be devoured, [Yes,] the firstborn of death will devour his members.
18:14 He will be rooted out of his tent in which he trusts; And he will be brought to the king of terrors.
18:15 There will stay in his tent that which is none of his: Brimstone will be scattered on his habitation.
18:16 His roots will be dried up beneath, And above will his branch be cut off.
18:17 His remembrance will perish from the earth, And he will have no name in the street.
18:18 He will be driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world.
18:19 He will have neither son nor son's son among his people, Nor any remaining where he sojourned.
18:20 Those who come after will be astonished at his day, As those who went before were frightened.
18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous, And this is the place of him who doesn't know God.
