Job - Chapter 008

8:1
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said:

8:2
How long wilt thou speak these things, seeing that the words of thy mouth are as a mighty wind?

8:3
Doth God pervert judgment? Or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

8:4
If thy children sinned against Him, He delivered them into the hand of their transgression.

8:5
If thou wouldest seek earnestly unto God, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;

8:6
If thou wert pure and upright; surely now He would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.

8:7
And though thy beginning was small, yet thy end should greatly increase.

8:8
For inquire, I pray thee, of the former generation, and apply thyself to that which their fathers have searched out--

8:9
For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow--

8:10
Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?

8:11
Can the rush shoot up without mire? Can the reed-grass grow without water?

8:12
Whilst it is yet in its greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.

8:13
So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hope of the godless man shall perish;

8:14
Whose confidence is gossamer, and whose trust is a spider's web.

8:15
He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand; he shall hold fast thereby, but it shall not endure.

8:16
He is green before the sun, and his shoots go forth over his garden.

8:17
His roots are wrapped about the heap, he beholdeth the place of stones.

8:18
If he be destroyed from his place, then it shall deny him: 'I have not seen thee.'

8:19
Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others spring.

8:20
Behold, God will not cast away an innocent man, neither will He uphold the evil-doers;

8:21
Till He fill thy mouth with laughter, and thy lips with shouting.

8:22
They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the tent of the wicked shall be no more.
