Job 8

RHE 1 Then Baldad, the Suhite, answered, and said: NIV 1 Then Bildad the Shuhite replied: RHE 2 How long wilt thou speak these things, and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind? NIV 2 “How long will you say such things? Your words are a blustering wind. RHE 3 Doth God pervert judgment, or doth the Almighty overthrow that which is just? NIV 3 Does God pervert justice? Does the Almighty pervert what is right? RHE 4 Although thy children have sinned against him, and he hath left them in the hand of their iniquity: NIV 4 When your children sinned against him, he gave them over to the penalty of their sin. RHE 5 Yet if thou wilt arise early to God, and wilt beseech the Almighty: NIV 5 But if you will seek God earnestly and plead with the Almighty, RHE 6 If thou wilt walk clean and upright, he will presently awake unto thee, and will make the dwelling of thy justice peaceable: NIV 6 if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your prosperous state. RHE 7 In so much, that if thy former things were small thy latter things would be multiplied exceedingly. NIV 7 Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be. RHE 8 For inquire of the former generation, and search diligently into the memory of the fathers: NIV 8 “Ask the former generation and find out what their ancestors learned, RHE 9 (For we are but of yesterday, and are ignorant that our days upon earth are but a shadow NIV 9 for we were born only yesterday and know nothing, and our days on earth are but a shadow. RHE 10 And they shall teach thee: they shall speak to thee, and utter words out of their hearts. NIV 10 Will they not instruct you and tell you? Will they not bring forth words from their understanding? RHE 11 Can the rush be green without moisture? or sedge bush grow without water? NIV 11 Can papyrus grow tall where there is no marsh? Can reeds thrive without water? RHE 12 When it is yet in flower, and is not plucked u with the hand, it withereth before all herbs. NIV 12 While still growing and uncut, they wither more quickly than grass. RHE 13 Even so are the ways of all that forget God, an the hope of the hypocrite shall perish: NIV 13 Such is the destiny of all who forget God; so perishes the hope of the godless. RHE 14 His folly shall not please him, and his trust shall be like the spider’s web. NIV 14 What they trust in is fragile ; what they rely on is a spider’s web. RHE 15 He shall lean upon his house, and it shall no stand: he shall prop it up, and it shall not rise: NIV 15 They lean on the web, but it gives way; they cling to it, but it does not hold. RHE 16 He seemeth to have moisture before the sun cometh; and at his rising, his blossom shall shoot forth. NIV 16 They are like a well-watered plant in the sunshine, spreading its shoots over the garden; RHE 17 His roots shall be thick upon a heap of stones; and among the stones he shall abide. NIV 17 it entwines its roots around a pile of rocks and looks for a place among the stones. RHE 18 If one swallow him up out of his place, he shall deny him, and shall say: I know thee not. NIV 18 But when it is torn from its spot, that place disowns it and says, ‘I never saw you.’ RHE 19 For this is the joy of his way, that others may spring again out of the earth. NIV 19 Surely its life withers away, and from the soil other plants grow. RHE 20 God will not cast away the simple, nor reach out his hand to the evil doer: NIV 20 “Surely God does not reject one who is blameless or strengthen the hands of evildoers. RHE 21 Until thy mouth be filled with laughter, and thy lips with rejoicing. NIV 21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. RHE 22 They that hate thee, shall be clothed with confusion: and the dwelling of the wicked shall not stand. NIV 22 Your enemies will be clothed in shame, and the tents of the wicked will be no more.”
