Job 8

Job 8:1 And Bildad the Shuhite answered, saying:
Job 8:2 Until when will you speak these things, since the words of your mouth are like a mighty wind?
Job 8:3 Or does God pervert judgment? Or does the Almighty pervert the right?
Job 8:4 If your sons have sinned against Him, and if He has sent them away in the hand of their transgression,
Job 8:5 if you would seek earnestly to God, and make your prayer to the Almighty,
Job 8:6 if you were pure and upright, surely now He would rise for you, and make whole the abode of your righteousness.
Job 8:7 And your beginning was small, yet your end would greatly increase.
Job 8:8 For now ask of the former generation, and prepare to the search of their fathers;
Job 8:9 for we are but of yesterday, and we know nothing because our days on earth are a shadow.
Job 8:10 Shall they not teach you, speak to you, and bring forth words out of their heart?
Job 8:11 Can the rush grow up without mire? Can the reed grass grow without water?
Job 8:12 While it is yet in its greenness, and not cut down, it dries out before every plant.
Job 8:13 So are the paths of all those forgetting God; yea, the hope of the ungodly shall perish,
Job 8:14 whose hope is cut off, and his trust as a spider’s house.
Job 8:15 He shall lean on his house, but it shall not stand; he shall hold fast to it, but it shall not endure.
Job 8:16 He is moist before the sun, and his tender plants shoot forth on his garden.
Job 8:17 His roots are wrapped around a heap; he sees a house of stones.
Job 8:18 If one swallows him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying I have not seen you!
Job 8:19 Behold this is the joy of His way, and out of the earth others shall grow.
Job 8:20 Behold, God will not cast away the innocent, and He will not help the evildoers,
Job 8:21 until He fills your mouth with laughter and your lips with rejoicing.
Job 8:22 Those who hate you shall be clothed with shame; and the tent of the wicked shall not be.

On this day...
