Bildad's Second Speech. 1Then Bildad the Shuhite replied and said:

2When will you put an end to words? Reflect, and then we can have discussion. 3Why are we accounted like the beasts, their equals in your sight? 4You who tear yourself in your anger,* shall the earth be neglected on your account [or the rock be moved out of its place]? 5Truly, the light of the wicked is extinguished; no flame brightens his hearth. 6The light is darkened in his tent; in spite of him, his lamp goes out. a Jb 21, 17; Prv 13, 9; 24, 20 . 7His vigorous steps are hemmed in, and his own counsel casts him down. 8For he rushes headlong into a net, and he wanders into a pitfall. 9A trap seizes him by the heel, and a snare lays hold of him. 10A noose for him is hid on the ground, and the toils for him on the way. 11On every side terrors affright him; b Jb 15, 20–24; 27, 20 . they harry him at each step. 12Disaster is ready at his side, 13the first‐born of death* consumes his limbs. 14Fiery destruction lodges in his tent, and marches him off to the king of terrors.* He is plucked from the security of his tent; 15over his abode brimstone is scattered. 16Below, his roots dry up, and above, his branches wither. 17His memory perishes from the land, c Ps 34, 17; Prv 2, 22; 10, 7 . and he has no name on the earth. 18He is driven from light into darkness, and banished out of the world. 19He has neither son nor grandson among his people, nor any survivor where once he dwelt. 20They who come after shall be appalled at his fate; they who went before are struck with horror. 21So is it then with the dwelling of the impious man, and such is the place of him who knows not God!
