Job 8

8:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, 8:2 How long wilt thou speake these things and how long shall the wordes of thy mouth be like a strong wind 8:3 Doth God peruert iudgement or doth the Almightie peruert iustice 8:4 If thy children haue sinned against him, and he haue cast them away for their transgression: 8:5 If thou wouldest seeke vnto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almightie: 8:6 If thou wert pure and vpright, surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousnes prosperous. 8:7 Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. 8:8 For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thy selfe to the search of their fathers. 8:9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our dayes vpon earth are a shadow.) 8:10 Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, & vtter words out of their heart 8:11 Can the rush growe vp without myre can the flag growe without water 8:12 Whilest it is yet in his greennesse, and not cut downe, it withereth before any other herbe. 8:13 So are the paths of all that forget God, and the hypocrites hope shall perish: 8:14 Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spiders web. 8:15 He shall leane vpon his house, but it shall not stand: he shal hold it fast, but it shall not endure. 8:16 He is greene before the sunne, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden. 8:17 His roots are wrapped about the heape, and seeth the place of stones. 8:18 If he destroy him from his place, then it shal denie him, saying, I haue not seene thee. 8:19 Beholde, this is the ioy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow. 8:20 Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will hee helpe the euill doers: 8:21 Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with reioycing. 8:22 They that hate thee shall be cloathed with shame, and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.
