Job 18 (WEBP)

[1] Then Bildad the Shuhite answered,
[2] “How long will you hunt for words? Consider, and afterwards we will speak.
[3] Why are we counted as animals, which have become unclean in your sight?
[4] You who tear yourself in your anger, will the earth be forsaken for you? Or will the rock be removed out of its place?
[5] “Yes, the light of the wicked will be put out. The spark of his fire won’t shine.
[6] The light will be dark in his tent. His lamp above him will be put out.
[7] The steps of his strength will be shortened. His own counsel will cast him down.
[8] For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he wanders into its mesh.
[9] A snare will take him by the heel. A trap will catch him.
[10] A noose is hidden for him in the ground, a trap for him on the path.
[11] Terrors will make him afraid on every side, and will chase him at his heels.
[12] His strength will be famished. Calamity will be ready at his side.
[13] The members of his body will be devoured. The firstborn of death will devour his members.
[14] He will be rooted out of the security of his tent. He will be brought to the king of terrors.
[15] There will dwell in his tent that which is none of his. Sulfur will be scattered on his habitation.
[16] His roots will be dried up beneath. His branch will be cut off above.
[17] His memory will perish from the earth. He will have no name in the street.
[18] He will be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
[19] He will have neither son nor grandson among his people, nor any remaining where he lived.
[20] Those who come after will be astonished at his day, as those who went before were frightened.
[21] Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous. This is the place of him who doesn’t know God.”

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 18 (YLT)

[1] And Bildad the Shuhite answereth and saith:-
[2] When do ye set an end to words? Consider ye, and afterwards do we speak.
[3] Wherefore have we been reckoned as cattle? We have been defiled in your eyes!
[4] (He is tearing himself in his anger.) For thy sake is earth forsaken? And removed is a rock from its place?
[5] Also, the light of the wicked is extinguished. And there doth not shine a spark of his fire.
[6] The light hath been dark in his tent, And his lamp over him is extinguished.
[7] Straitened are the steps of his strength, And cast him down doth his own counsel.
[8] For he is sent into a net by his own feet, And on a snare he doth walk habitually.
[9] Seize on the heel doth a gin, Prevail over him do the designing.
[10] Hidden in the earth is his cord, And his trap on the path.
[11] Round about terrified him have terrors, And they have scattered him-at his feet.
[12] Hungry is his sorrow, And calamity is ready at his side.
[13] It consumeth the parts of his skin, Consume his parts doth death’s first-born.
[14] Drawn from his tent is his confidence, And it causeth him to step to the king of terrors.
[15] It dwelleth in his tent-out of his provender, Scattered over his habitation is sulphur.
[16] From beneath his roots are dried up, And from above cut off is his crop.
[17] His memorial hath perished from the land, And he hath no name on the street.
[18] They thrust him from light unto darkness, And from the habitable earth cast him out.
[19] He hath no continuator, Nor successor among his people, And none is remaining in his dwellings.
[20] At this day westerns have been astonished And easterns have taken fright.
[21] Only these are tabernacles of the perverse, And this the place God hath not known.
