8:1 ¶ Then responded Bildad the Shuhite, and said:
8:2 How long wilt thou speak these things? Or, as a mighty wind, shall be the sayings of thy mouth?
8:3 Should, GOD, pervert justice? Or, the Almighty, pervert righteousness?
8:4 Though, thy children, sinned against him, and he delivered them into the hand of their transgression,
8:5 Yet, if, thou thyself, wilt diligently seek unto GOD,and, unto the Almighty, wilt make supplication;
8:6 If, pure and upright, thou thyself, art, surely, now, will he answer thy prayer, and will prosper thy righteous habitation:
8:7 So shall thy beginning appear small,when, thy latter end, he shall greatly increase!
8:8 ¶ For inquire, I pray thee, of a former generation, and prepare thyself for the research of their fathers;
8:9 For, of yesterday, are, we, and cannot know, for, a shadow, are our days upon earth:
8:10 Shall, they, not teach theetell thee, and, out of their memory, bring forth words?
8:11 Can the paper-reed grow up, without a marsh? Or the rush grow up, without water?
8:12 Though while still, in its freshness, it be not plucked off, yet, before any kind of grass, it doth wither:
8:13 So, shall be the latter end of all who forget GOD, and, the hope of the impious, shall perish:
8:14 Whose trust shall be contemptible,and, a spider's web, his confidence:
8:15 He leaneth upon his house, and it will not stand, he holdeth it fast, and it will not remain erect.
8:16 Full of moisture he is, before the sun, and, over his garden, his shoot goeth forth:
8:17 Over a heap, his roots are entwined, a place of stones, he descrieth;
8:18 If one destroy him out of his place, then will it disown him [saying]I have not seen thee.
8:19 Lo! that, is the joy of his way,and, out of the dust, shall others spring up.
8:20 ¶ Lo! GOD, will not reject a blameless man, neither will he grasp the hand of evil-doers:
8:21 At length he shall fill with laughter thy mouth, and thy lips, with a shout of triumph:
8:22 They who hate thee, shall be clothed with shame, but, the tent of the lawless, shall not be!
