8 Then cBildad the Shuhite answered and said:
and the words of your mouth be a dgreat wind?
3 eDoes God pervert justice?
Or does the Almighty pervert the right?
4 If your fchildren have sinned against him,
he has delivered them into the hand of their transgression.
and gplead with the Almighty for mercy,
surely then he will hrouse himself for you
and irestore your rightful habitation.
jyour latter days will be very great.
8 “For kinquire, please, of bygone ages,
and consider what lthe fathers have searched out.
for our days on earth are ma shadow.
and utter words out of their understanding?
Can reeds flourish where there is no water?
they nwither before any other plant.
13 Such are the paths of all who oforget God;
15 He leans against his shouse, but it does not stand;
he lays hold of it, but it does not endure.
and his tshoots spread over his garden.
he looks upon a house of stones.
18 If he is destroyed from his uplace,
then it will deny him, saying, ‘I have never vseen you.’
and out of wthe soil others will spring.
nor take the hand of evildoers.
21 He will yet xfill your mouth with laughter,
and your lips with shouting.
22 Those who hate you will be yclothed with shame,
and the tent of the wicked will be no more.”
