Bildad reproveth Job of presumption and impatience.
Job 18:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite and said, Job 18:2 How long [will it bee, ere] you make an ende of words? Marke, and afterwards we will speake. Job 18:3 Wherefore are wee counted as beasts, [and] reputed vile in your sight? Job 18:4 He teareth himselfe in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rocke bee remooued out of his place?
The calamities of the wicked.
Job 18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shalbe put out, and the sparke of his fire shall not shine. Job 18:6 The light shalbe darke in his tabernacle, and his candle shalbe put out with him. Job 18:7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his owne counsell shall cast him downe. Job 18:8 For hee is cast into a net by his owne feete, & he walketh vpon a snare. Job 18:9 The grinne shall take [him] by the heele, [and] the robber shall preuaile against him. Job 18:10 The snare [is] laide for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way. Job 18:11 Terrours shall make him afraid on euery side, and shall driue him to his feete. Job 18:12 His strength shalbe hunger-bitten, and destruction [shall be] ready at his side. Job 18:13 It shall deuoure the strength of his skinne: [euen] the first borne of death shall deuoure his strength. Job 18:14 His confidence shalbe rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrours. Job 18:15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it [is] none of his: brimstone shall be scattered vpon his habitation. Job 18:16 His rootes shall be dryed vp beneath: and aboue shall his branch be cut off. Job 18:17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and hee shall haue no name in the streete. Job 18:18 He shall be driuen from light into darkenesse, and chased out of the world. Job 18:19 Hee shall neither [haue] sonne nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings. Job 18:20 They that come after him shalbe astonied at his day, as they that went before, were affrighted. Job 18:21 Surely such [are] the dwellings of the wicked, and this [is] the place [of him that] knoweth not God.
