Job 18

1Then Bildad from Shuah answered: 2“Job, when will you stop talking? Be quiet and listen. Let us say something. 3Why do you think we are stupid like dumb cows? 4Job, your anger is only hurting yourself. Should people leave the earth just for you? Do you think God will move mountains just to satisfy you? 5“Yes, the evil person’s light will go out. His fire will stop burning. 6The light in his house will become dark. The lamp next to him will go out. 7His steps won’t be strong and fast again. But he will walk slowly and be weak. His own evil plans will make him fall. 8His own feet will lead him into a trap. He will walk into a trap and be caught. 9A trap will catch his heel. A trap will hold him tight. 10A rope in the ground will trap him. A trap is waiting in his path. 11Terror is waiting for him all around. Fears will follow every step he takes. 12Bad troubles are hungry for him. Ruin and disaster are ready for him when he falls. 13Terrible sickness will eat away his skin. It will rot his arms and legs. 14The evil person will be taken away from the safety of his house. He will be led away to meet the king of terrors. 15He will have nothing left in his house. Why? Burning sulfur will be scattered all through his home. 16His roots below will dry up, and his branches above will die. 17People on earth won’t remember him. No person remembers him anymore. 18People will push him away from light into the darkness. They will chase him out of this world. 19He will have no children or grandchildren. None of his family will be left alive. 20People in the west will be shocked when they hear what happened to the evil person. People in the east will be numb with fear. 21That really will happen to the evil person’s home. This is what will happen to the person that does not care about God!”
