Job 18 (asv)
18:2How long will ye hunt for words?
Consider, and afterwards we will speak.
18:3Wherefore are we counted as beasts,
And are become unclean in your sight?
18:4Thou that tearest thyself in thine anger,
Shall the earth be forsaken for thee?
Or shall the rock be removed out of its place? \\ \\
18:5Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out,
And the spark of his fire shall not shine.
18:6The light shall be dark in his tent,
And his lamp above him shall be put out.
18:7The steps of his strength shall be straitened,
And his own counsel shall cast him down.
And he walketh upon the toils.
18:9A gin shall take him by the heel,
And a snare shall lay hold on him.
18:10A noose is hid for him in the ground,
And a trap for him in the way.
18:11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side,
And shall chase him at his heels.
18:12His strength shall be hunger-bitten,
And calamity shall be ready at his side.
18:13The members of his body shall be devoured,
18:14He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusteth;
And he shall be brought to the king of terrors.
18:15There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his:
Brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
18:16His roots shall be dried up beneath,
And above shall his branch be cut off.
18:17His remembrance shall perish from the earth,
And he shall have no name in the street.
And chased out of the world.
18:19He shall have neither son nor son's son among his people,
Nor any remaining where he sojourned.
18:20They that come after shall be astonished at his day,
As they that went before were affrighted.
18:21Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous,
