Iyov (Book of Job), Chapter 18

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 How long will ye lay snares for words? Consider, and afterwards we will speak.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed dull in your sight?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Thou that tearest thyself in thine anger, shall the earth be forsaken for thee? Or shall the rock be removed out of its place?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 The light shall be dark in his tent, and his lamp over him shall be put out.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon the toils.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 A gin shall take him by the heel, and a snare shall lay hold on him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 A noose is hid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Terrors shall overwhelm him on every side, and shall entrap him at his feet.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 His trouble shall be ravenous, and calamity shall be ready for his fall.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 It shall devour the members of his body, yea, the first-born of death shall devour his members.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 That wherein he trusteth shall be plucked out of his tent; and he shall be brought to the king of terrors.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his; brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 His roots shall dry up beneath, and above shall his branch wither.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name abroad.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 He shall have neither son nor son's son among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 They that come after shall be astonished at his day, as they that went before are affrighted.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not G-d.
