8 Then answered aBildad the Shuhite, and said,
And how long shall the words of thy mouth be like ba strong wind?
3 cDoth God pervert judgment?
Or ddoth the Almighty pervert justice?
4 If ethy children have sinned against him,
And he have cast them away †for their transgression;
And make thy supplication to the Almighty;
Surely now he would awake for thee,
And make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
Yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
8 hFor inquire, I pray thee, of the former age,
And prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
Because our days upon earth are ja shadow:)
And utter words out of their heart?

Can the lflag grow without water?
12 mWhilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down,
It withereth before any other herb.
And the nhypocrite’s hope shall perish:
And whose trust shall be †a spider’s web.
15 He shall lean upon ohis house, but it shall not stand:
He shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
16 He is pgreen before the sun,
And his qbranch shooteth forth in his garden.
17 His roots are rwrapped about the heap,
And seeth the place of stones.
18 If he destroy him sfrom his place,
Then it shall deny him, tsaying, I have not seen thee.
And uout of the earth shall others grow.
Neither will he †help the evil doers:
21 Till he xfill thy mouth with laughing,
And thy lips with †rejoicing.
22 They that hate thee shall be yclothed with shame;
