18:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
18:2 How long [will it be ere] ye make an end of words? mark,

forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of its
18:5 Yes, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the
spark of his fire shall not shine.
18:6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle
shall be put out with him.
18:7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own
counsel shall cast him down.
18:8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh
upon a snare.
18:9 The gin shall take [him] by the heel, [and] the robber
shall prevail against him.
18:10 The snare [is] laid for him in the ground, and a trap for
him in the way.
18:11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall
drive him to his feet.
18:12 His strength shall be hunger-bitten, and destruction
[shall be] ready at his side.
18:13 It shall devour the strength of his skin: [even] the
first-born of death shall devour his strength.
18:14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and
it shall bring him to the king of terrors.
18:15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because [it is] none of
his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
18:16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his
branch be cut off.
18:17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall
have no name in the street.
18:18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased
out of the world.
18:19 He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor
any remaining in his dwellings.
18:20 They that come after [him] shall be astonished at his day,
as they that went before were affrighted.
18:21 Surely such [are] the dwellings of the wicked, and this
[is] the place [of him that] knoweth not God.
