1: Then Bildad the Shuhite answered,
2: "How long will you hunt for words? Consider, and afterwards we will speak.
3: Why are we counted as animals, which have become unclean in your sight?
4: You who tear yourself in your anger, shall the earth be forsaken for you? Or shall the rock be removed out of its place?
5: "Yes, the light of the wicked shall be put out, The spark of his fire shall not shine.
6: The light shall be dark in his tent. His lamp above him shall be put out.
7: The steps of his strength shall be shortened. His own counsel shall cast him down.
8: For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he wanders into its mesh.
9: A snare will take him by the heel. A trap will catch him.
10: A noose is hidden for him in the ground, a trap for him in the way.
11: Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall chase him at his heels.
12: His strength shall be famished. Calamity shall be ready at his side.
13: The members of his body shall be devoured. The firstborn of death shall devour his members.
14: He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusts. He shall be brought to the king of terrors.
15: There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his. Sulfur shall be scattered on his habitation.
16: His roots shall be dried up beneath. Above shall his branch be cut off.
17: His memory shall perish from the earth. He shall have no name in the street.
18: He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
19: He shall have neither son nor grandson among his people, nor any remaining where he lived.
20: Those who come after shall be astonished at his day, as those who went before were frightened.
21: Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous. This is the place of him who doesn't know God."
