Bildad reproveth Job of presumption and impatience.
Job 18:1 Then answered Baldad the Suhite, and sayde: Job 18:2 when wil ye make an ende of youre wordes? Marcke well, and considre, we wil speake also. Job 18:3 Wherfore are we counted as beestes, & reputed so vyle in youre sight? Job 18:4 Why destroyest thou thy self with anger? Shal ye earth be forsaken, or the stones remoued out of their place because of ye?
The calamities of the wicked.
Job 18:5 Shal not the light of the vngodly be put out? yee the flame of his fyre shal not burne. Job 18:6 The light shalbe darcke in his dwellinge, & his candle shalbe put out with him. Job 18:7 His presumptuous goinges shal be kepte in, and his owne councell shal cast him downe. Job 18:8 For his fete shalbe taken in the nett, and he shal walke in the snare. Job 18:9 His fote shalbe holden in the gilder, and the thurstie shal catch him. Job 18:10 The snare is layed for him in the grounde, and a pytfall in the waye. Job 18:11 Fearfulnesse shal make him afrayed on euery syde, that he shall not knowe, where to get out. Job 18:12 Honger shalbe his substaunce, and mysfortune shall hange vpon him. Job 18:13 He shall eate his owne skynne, yee his owne armes shall he deuoure, beynge a firstborne of death. Job 18:14 All his comforte and hope shalbe roted out of his dwellynge, very fearfulnesse shall brynge him to the kynge. Job 18:15 Other men shall dwel in his house (which now is none of his) and brymstone shalbe scatered vpon his habitacion. Job 18:16 His rotes shalbe dryed vp beneth, & aboue shall his haruest be cut downe. Job 18:17 His remembraunce shall perish from the earth, & his name shall not be praysed in the stretes: Job 18:18 he shalbe dryuen from the light into darcknesse, and be cast clene out of the worlde. Job 18:19 He shall nether haue children ner kynsfolkes amonge his people, no ner eny posterite in his countre: Job 18:20 yonge & olde shalbe astonyshed at his death. Job 18:21 Soch are now the dwellynges of the wicked, and this is ye place of him that knoweth not God.
