018:008:001
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite,
and said,


018:008:002
How long wilt thou speak these things?
and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind?


018:008:003
Doth God pervert judgment?
or doth the Almighty pervert justice?


018:008:004
If thy children have sinned against him,
and he have cast them away for their transgression;


018:008:005
If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes,
and make thy supplication to the Almighty;


018:008:006
If thou wert pure and upright;
surely now he would awake for thee,
and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.


018:008:007
Though thy beginning was small,
yet thy latter end should greatly increase.


018:008:008
For enquire,
I pray thee,
of the former age,
and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:


018:008:009
(For we are but of yesterday,
and know nothing,
because our days upon earth are a shadow:)


018:008:010
Shall not they teach thee,
and tell thee,
and utter words out of their heart?


018:008:011
Can the rush grow up without mire?
can the flag grow without water?


018:008:012
Whilst it is yet in his greenness,
and not cut down,
it withereth before any other herb.


018:008:013
So are the paths of all that forget God;
and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:


018:008:014
Whose hope shall be cut off,
and whose trust shall be a spider's web.


018:008:015
He shall lean upon his house,
but it shall not stand:
he shall hold it fast,
but it shall not endure.


018:008:016
He is green before the sun,
and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.


018:008:017
His roots are wrapped about the heap,
and seeth the place of stones.


018:008:018
If he destroy him from his place,
then it shall deny him,
saying,
I have not seen thee.


018:008:019
Behold,
this is the joy of his way,
and out of the earth shall others grow.


018:008:020
Behold,
God will not cast away a perfect man,
neither will he help the evil doers:


018:008:021
Till he fill thy mouth with laughing,
and thy lips with rejoicing.


018:008:022
They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame;
and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.
