Bildad reproves Job
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
How long will it be ere you make an end of words?
Mark, and afterwards we will speak.
Wherefore are we counted Ps. 73:22as beasts,
And reputed vile in your sight?
ch. 13:14He teareth himself in his anger:
Shall the earth be forsaken for thee?
And shall the rock be removed out of his place?
Yea, Prov. 13:9the light of the wicked shall be put out,
And the spark of his fire shall not shine.
The light shall be dark in his tabernacle,
ch. 21:17;Ps. 18:28And his candle shall be put out with him.
The steps of his strength shall be straitened,
And ch. 5:13his own counsel shall cast him down.
For ch. 22:10;Ps. 9:15;& 35:8he is cast into a net by his own feet,
And he walketh upon a snare.
The grin shall take him by the heel,
And ch. 5:5the robber shall prevail against him.
The snare is laid for him in the ground,
And a trap for him in the way.
ch. 20:25;Jer. 6:25;& 20:3,4Terrors shall make him afraid on every side,
And shall drive him to his feet.
His strength shall be hunger-bitten,
And ch. 15:23destruction shall be ready at his side.
It shall devour the strength of his skin:
Even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.
ch. 11:20;Ps. 112:10;Prov. 10:28His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle,
And it shall bring him to the king of terrors.
It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his:
Brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
ch. 29:19;Is. 5:24;Amos 2:9;Mal. 4:1His roots shall be dried up beneath,
And above shall his branch be cut off.
Ps. 34:16;& 109:13;Prov. 2:22;& 10:7His remembrance shall perish from the earth,
And he shall have no name in the street.
He shall be driven from light into darkness,
And chased out of the world.
Is. 14:22;Jer. 22:30He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people,
Nor any remaining in his dwellings.
They that come after him shall be astonied at his day,
As they that went before were affrighted.
Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked,
And this is the place of him that Jer. 9:3;1 Thes. 4:5knoweth not God.
