Bildad reproveth Job of presumption and impatience.
Job 18:1 Then aunswered Bildad the Suhite, and saide: Job 18:2 When wyll ye make an ende of your wordes? Marke well, and then we wyll speake. Job 18:3 Wherfore are we counted as beastes, and reputed so vyle in your sight? Job 18:4 He destroyeth him selfe with his anger: Shall the earth be forsaken, or any stone remoued out of his place because of thee?
The calamities of the wicked.
Job 18:5 Yea, the light of the vngodly shalbe put out, and the sparke of his fire shall not shine. Job 18:6 The light shall be darke in his dwelling, and his candle shall be put out with him. Job 18:7 The steppes of his strength shalbe restrayned, and his owne counsaile shall cast him downe: Job 18:8 For his feete are taken [as it were] in the net, & he walketh vpon the snares. Job 18:9 The grinne shall take him by the heele, and it shall catche him that is thirstie of blood. Job 18:10 The snare is layde for him in the grounde, and a pitfall in the way. Job 18:11 Fearefulnesse shall make him afraide on euery side, and shall driue him to his feete. Job 18:12 Hunger shalbe his strength, and destruction shalbe redye at his side. Job 18:13 It shall eate the strength of his owne skinne, euen the first borne of death shall eate his strength. Job 18:14 His hope shalbe rooted out of his dwelling, and shall bring him to the king of feare. Job 18:15 Other men shall dwell in his house, and it shalbe none of his, and brimstone shall be scattered vpon his habitation. Job 18:16 His rootes shalbe dryed vp beneath, and aboue shall his braunche be cut downe. Job 18:17 His remembraunce shall perishe from the earth, and he shall haue no name in the streete. Job 18:18 They shall driue him from the light into darkenesse, and chaste him cleane out of the worlde. Job 18:19 He shall neither haue children nor kinsfolkes among his people, no nor any posteritie in his dwellinges. Job 18:20 They that come after him, shalbe astonyed at his day, and they that go before shalbe afrayde. Job 18:21 Such are now the dwellinges of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.
