Bildad reproveth Job of presumption and impatience.
Job 18:1 Then answered Baldad the Suhite, and sayde: Job 18:2 when wyll ye make an ende of your wordes? Marcke well, and consydre, we wyll speake also. Job 18:3 Wherfore are we counted as beastes, and reputed so vyle in youre syght? Job 18:4 Why destroyest thou thy selfe with anger? Shall the earth be forsaken, or the stones remoued oute of their place because of the?
The calamities of the wicked.
Job 18:5 Shall not the lyght of the vngodly be put oute? yee the flame of hys fyre shall not burne. Job 18:6 The lyght shalbe darcke in hys dwellynge, and hys candle shalbe put out with hym. Job 18:7 His presumptuous goinges shall be kepte in, and his owne councell shal cast hym downe. Job 18:8 For his fete shalbe taken in the nett, and he shall walke in the snare. Job 18:9 His fote shalbe holden in the gilder, and the thrustie shall catch him. Job 18:10 The snare is layed for him in the grounde, and a pitfall in the waye. Job 18:11 Fearfulnesse shall make hym 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 hym. Job 18:13 He shall eate the strength of his skynne, the fyrste borne of death shall eate hys membres. Job 18:14 All his comforte & hope shalbe roted out of his dwellynge, very fearfulnesse shall bringe hym to the kynge. Job 18:15 Other men shall dwell in his house (which now is none of his) and brymstone shalbe scatered vpon his habitacion. Job 18:16 Hys rotes shalbe dryed vp beneth, and aboue shall his haruest be cutt downe. Job 18:17 Hys remembraunce shall perish from the earth, & hys name shall not be praysed in the stretes: Job 18:18 he shalbe dryuen from the lyght into darcknesse, and be cast cleane out of the world. Job 18:19 He shall nether haue chyldren nor kynsfolckes amonge his people, no, ner eny posterite in his countre: Job 18:20 yonng & olde shalbe astonished at his death. Job 18:21 Soche are now the dwellynges of the wycked, and this the place of him that knoweth not God.
