8:1 And Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,

8:2 How long wilt thou speak these things? and the words of thy mouth be a strong wind?

8:3 Doth łGod pervert judgment, and the Almighty pervert justice?

8:4 If thy children have sinned against him, he hath also given them over into the hand of their transgression.

8:5 If thou seek earnestly unto łGod, and make thy supplication to the Almighty,

8:6 If thou be pure and upright, surely now he will awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous;

8:7 And though thy beginning was small, yet thine end shall be very great.

8:8 For inquire, I pray thee, of the former generation, and attend to the researches of their fathers;

8:9 For we are [but] of yesterday, and know nothing, for our days upon earth are a shadow.

8:10 Shall not they teach thee, [and] tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?

8:11 Doth the papyrus shoot up without mire? doth the reed-grass grow without water?

8:12 Whilst it is yet in its greenness [and] not cut down, it withereth before any [other] grass.

8:13 So are the paths of all that forget łGod; and the profane man's hope shall perish,

8:14 Whose confidence shall be cut off, and his reliance is a spider's web.

8:15 He shall lean upon his house, and it shall not stand; he shall lay hold on it, but it shall not endure.

8:16 He is full of sap before the sun, and his sprout shooteth forth over his garden;

8:17 His roots are entwined about the stoneheap; he seeth the place of stones.

8:18 If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him: I have not seen thee!

8:19 Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the dust shall others grow.

8:20 Behold, łGod will not cast off a perfect man, neither will he take evil-doers by the hand.

8:21 Whilst he would fill thy mouth with laughing and thy lips with shouting,

8:22 They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame, and the tent of the wicked be no more.
