Chapter 8

1

 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, 

2

 How long wilt thou speak these [things]? and [how long shall] the words of thy mouth [be like] a strong wind? 

3

 Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice? 

4

 If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression; 

5

 If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty; 

6

 If thou [wert] pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous. 

7

 Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. 

8

 For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers: 

9

 (For we [are but of] yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth [are] a shadow:) 

10

 Shall not they teach thee, [and] tell thee, and utter words out of their heart? 

11

 Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water? 

12

 Whilst it [is] yet in his greenness, [and] not cut down, it withereth before any [other] herb. 

13

 So [are] the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish: 

14

 Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust [shall be] a spider's web. 

15

 He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure. 

16

 He [is] green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden. 

17

 His roots are wrapped about the heap, [and] seeth the place of stones. 

18

 If he destroy him from his place, then [it] shall deny him, [saying], I have not seen thee. 

19

 Behold, this [is] the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow. 

20

 Behold, God will not cast away a perfect [man], neither will he help the evil doers: 

21

 Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing. 

22

 They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought. 

Job 9
