Job 8

8:1 And Bildad the Shuhite answereth and saith: -- 8:2 Till when dost thou speak these things And a strong wind--sayings of thy mouth 8:3 Doth God pervert judgment And doth the Mighty One pervert justice 8:4 If thy sons have sinned before Him, And He doth send them away, By the hand of their transgression, 8:5 If thou dost seek early unto God, And unto the Mighty makest supplication, 8:6 If pure and upright thou [art] , Surely now He waketh for thee, And hath completed The habitation of thy righteousness. 8:7 And thy beginning hath been small, And thy latter end is very great.  8:8 For, ask I pray thee of a former generation, And prepare to a search of their fathers, 8:9 (For of yesterday we [are] , and we know not, For a shadow [are] our days on earth.) 8:10 Do they not shew thee--speak to thee, And from their heart bring forth words 8:11 `Doth a rush wise without mire A reed increase without water 8:12 While it [is] in its budding--uncropped, Even before any herb it withereth. 8:13 So [are] the paths of all forgetting God, And the hope of the profane doth perish, 8:14 Whose confidence is loathsome, And the house of a spider his trust. 8:15 He leaneth on his house--and it standeth not: He taketh hold on it--and it abideth not. 8:16 Green he [is] before the sun, And over his garden his branch goeth out. 8:17 By a heap his roots are wrapped, A house of stones he looketh for. 8:18 If [one] doth destroy him from his place, Then it hath feigned concerning him, I have not seen thee! 8:19 Lo, this [is] the joy of his way, And from the dust others spring up.'  8:20 Lo, God doth not reject the perfect, Nor taketh hold on the hand of evil doers. 8:21 While he filleth with laughter thy mouth, And thy lips with shouting, 8:22 Those hating thee do put on shame, And the tent of the wicked is not!
