Job 18 (asv)

Job 18 (asv)

18:1Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

18:2How long will ye hunt for words?

Consider, and afterwards we will speak.

18:3Wherefore are we counted as beasts,

And are become unclean in your sight?

18:4Thou that tearest thyself in thine anger,

Shall the earth be forsaken for thee?

Or shall the rock be removed out of its place? \\ \\

18:5Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out,

And the spark of his fire shall not shine.

18:6The light shall be dark in his tent,

And his lamp above him shall be put out.

18:7The steps of his strength shall be straitened,

And his own counsel shall cast him down.

18:8For he is cast into a net by his own feet,

And he walketh upon the toils.

18:9A gin shall take him by the heel,

And a snare shall lay hold on him.

18:10A noose is hid for him in the ground,

And a trap for him in the way.

18:11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side,

And shall chase him at his heels.

18:12His strength shall be hunger-bitten,

And calamity shall be ready at his side.

18:13The members of his body shall be devoured,

Yea, the first-born of death shall devour his members.

18:14He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusteth;

And he shall be brought to the king of terrors.

18:15There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his:

Brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

18:16His roots shall be dried up beneath,

And above shall his branch be cut off.

18:17His remembrance shall perish from the earth,

And he shall have no name in the street.

18:18He shall be driven from light into darkness,

And chased out of the world.

18:19He shall have neither son nor son's son among his people,

Nor any remaining where he sojourned.

18:20They that come after shall be astonished at his day,

As they that went before were affrighted.

18:21Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous,

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