JOB · Chapter 8
8:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
8:2 How long will you speak these things? and how long shall the words of your mouth be like a strong wind?
8:3 Does God pervert judgment? or does the Almighty pervert justice?
8:4 If your children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;
8:5 If you would seek unto God early, and make your supplication to the Almighty;
8:6 If you were pure and upright; surely now he would awake for you, and make the habitation of your righteousness prosperous.
8:7 Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end should greatly increase.
8:8 For enquire, I pray you, of the former age, and prepare yourself to the search of their fathers:
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 you, and tell you, and utter words out of their heart?
8:11 Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?
8:12 Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withers before any other herb.
8:13 So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:
8:14 Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.
8:15 He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
8:16 He is green before the sun, and his branch shoots forth in his garden.
8:17 His roots are wrapped about the heap, and sees the place of stones.
8:18 If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen you.
8:19 Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.
8:20 Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:
8:21 Till he fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing.
8:22 They that hate you shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nothing.
