18 Thena Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,
Consider,e and afterward we shall speak.
will the earth be forsaken because of you?j
Ork will the rock be removed from its place?
5 Furthermore,l the light of the wicked is put out,
and the flame of his fire will not shine.
and his lamp above him is put out.
7 “⌊His strong steps⌋m are shortened,
and his own schemesn throw him down,
and he walks into a pitfall.
a snare takes hold of him.
and his trap on the path.
and they chase him at his heels.
and disaster is ready for his stumbling.
the firstborn of death consumes his limbs.
14 He is torn from his tent ⌊in which he trusted⌋,o
and it brought him to the king of terrors.
15 “⌊Nothing⌋p remains for him in his tent;
sulfur is scattered upon his dwelling place.
16 His roots dry up ⌊below⌋,q
and there is not a name for him on the street.
and they drive him out from the world.
19 There is no offspring for him nort a descendant among his people,
and there is not a survivor in his abode.
20 Those of the west are appalled over ⌊his fate⌋,u
and those of the east ⌊are seized with horror⌋.v
and this is the dwelling place of him who knows not God.”
