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.”

Job 18 (KJVS)

[1] Then answered H6030 (8799) Bildad H1085 the Shuhite H7747, and said H559 (8799),
[2] How long H5704 [will it be ere] ye make H7760 (8799) an end H7078 of words H4405? mark H995 (8799), and afterwards H310 we will speak H1696 (8762).
[3] Wherefore are we counted H2803 (8738) as beasts H929, [and] reputed vile H2933 (8738) in your sight H5869?
[4] He teareth H2963 (8802) himself H5315 in his anger H639: shall the earth H776 be forsaken H5800 (8735) for thee? and shall the rock H6697 be removed H6275 (8799) out of his place H4725?
[5] Yea, the light H216 of the wicked H7563 shall be put out H1846 (8799), and the spark H7632 of his fire H784 shall not shine H5050 (8799).
[6] The light H216 shall be dark H2821 (8804) in his tabernacle H168, and his candle H5216 shall be put out H1846 (8799) with him.
[7] The steps H6806 of his strength H202 shall be straitened H3334 (8799), and his own counsel H6098 shall cast him down H7993 (8686).
[8] For he is cast H7971 (8795) into a net H7568 by his own feet H7272, and he walketh H1980 (8691) upon a snare H7639.
[9] The gin H6341 shall take H270 (8799) [him] by the heel H6119, [and] the robber H6782 shall prevail H2388 (8686) against him.
[10] The snare H2256 [is] laid H2934 (8803) for him in the ground H776, and a trap H4434 for him in the way H5410.
[11] Terrors H1091 shall make him afraid H1204 (8765) on every side H5439, and shall drive H6327 (8689) him to his feet H7272.
[12] His strength H202 shall be hungerbitten H7457, and destruction H343 [shall be] ready H3559 (8737) at his side H6763.
[13] It shall devour H398 (8799) the strength H905 of his skin H5785: [even] the firstborn H1060 of death H4194 shall devour H398 (8799) his strength H905.
[14] His confidence H4009 shall be rooted out H5423 (8735) of his tabernacle H168, and it shall bring H6805 (8686) him to the king H4428 of terrors H1091.
[15] It shall dwell H7931 (8799) in his tabernacle H168, because [it is] none H1097 of his: brimstone H1614 shall be scattered H2219 (8792) upon his habitation H5116.
[16] His roots H8328 shall be dried up H3001 (8799) beneath, and above H4605 shall his branch H7105 be cut off H5243 (8799).
[17] His remembrance H2143 shall perish H6 (8804) from the earth H776, and he shall have no name H8034 in the street H6440 H2351.
[18] He shall be driven H1920 (8799) from light H216 into darkness H2822, and chased H5074 (8686) out of the world H8398.
[19] He shall neither have son H5209 nor nephew H5220 among his people H5971, nor any remaining H8300 in his dwellings H4033.
[20] They that come after H314 [him] shall be astonied H8074 (8738) at his day H3117, as they that went before H6931 were affrighted H270 (8804) H8178.
[21] Surely such [are] the dwellings H4908 of the wicked H5767, and this [is] the place H4725 [of him that] knoweth H3045 (8804) not God H410.

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.
