Job 18

18 Then answered aBildad the Shuhite, and said,

bHow long will it be ere ye make an end of words?

Mark, and afterwards we will speak.

Wherefore are we counted cas beasts,

And reputed vile in your sight?

He dteareth himself in his anger:

Shall the earth be forsaken for thee?

And shall ethe rock be removed out of his place?

Yea, fthe light of the wicked shall be put out,

And the spark of his fire shall not shine.

The light shall be dark in his gtabernacle,

And his f||candle shall be put out hwith him.

The steps of his strength shall be straitened,

And ihis own counsel shall cast him down.

For he jis cast into ka net by his own feet,

And he walketh upon a snare.

lThe gin shall take him by the heel,

And mthe robber shall prevail against him.

10  The nsnare is laid for him in the ground,

And a trap for him in the way.

11  oTerrors shall make him afraid on every side,

And shall drive him pto his feet.

12  His strength shall be hungerbitten,

And destruction shall be qrready rat his side.

13  It shall devour the strength of shis skin:

Even tthe firstborn of death shall devour his strength.

14  uHis confidence shall be xrooted out of his gtabernacle,

And it shall bring him to ythe king of terrors.

15  It shall dwell in his gtabernacle, because it is none of his:

zBrimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

16  His aroots shall be dried up beneath,

And above shall his branch be bcut off.

17  cHis remembrance shall perish from the earth,

And he shall have no name din the street.

18  He shall be driven from light into darkness,

And chased out of the world.

19  He shall neither have eson nor fnephew among his people,

Nor gany remaining in his hdwellings.

20  They that come after him shall be astonied at ihis day,

As they that ||went before were affrighted.

21  Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked,

And this is the place of him that kknoweth not God.
