Job 18

1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

2 How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak. (Job. 18:2)

3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight? (Job. 18:3)

4 He teareth himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place? (Job. 18:4)

5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine. (Job. 18:5)

6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him. (Job. 18:6)

7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down. (Job. 18:7)

8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare. (Job. 18:8)

9 The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him. (Job. 18:9)

10 The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way. (Job. 18:10)

11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet. (Job. 18:11)

12 His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side. (Job. 18:12)

13 It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength. (Job. 18:13)

14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors. (Job. 18:14)

15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation. (Job. 18:15)

16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off. (Job. 18:16)

17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street. (Job. 18:17)

18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world. (Job. 18:18)

19 He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings. (Job. 18:19)

20 They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted. (Job. 18:20)

21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God. (Job. 18:21)

Job 19

1 Then Job answered and said,

2 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words? (Job. 19:2)

3 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me. (Job. 19:3)

4 And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself. (Job. 19:4)

5 If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach: (Job. 19:5)

6 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net. (Job. 19:6)

7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment. (Job. 19:7)

8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths. (Job. 19:8)

9 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head. (Job. 19:9)

10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree. (Job. 19:10)

11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies. (Job. 19:11)

12 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle. (Job. 19:12)

13 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me. (Job. 19:13)

14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me. (Job. 19:14)

15 They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight. (Job. 19:15)

16 I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I entreated him with my mouth. (Job. 19:16)

17 My breath is strange to my wife, though I entreated for the children's sake of mine own body. (Job. 19:17)

18 Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me. (Job. 19:18)

19 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me. (Job. 19:19)

20 My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth. (Job. 19:20)

21 Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me. (Job. 19:21)

22 Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh? (Job. 19:22)

23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! (Job. 19:23)

24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! (Job. 19:24)

25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: (Job. 19:25)

26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: (Job. 19:26)

27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me. (Job. 19:27)

28 But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me? (Job. 19:28)

29 Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment. (Job. 19:29)
