Job 8

WYC 1 Then Bildad (the) Shuhite answered, and said, NIV 1 Then Bildad the Shuhite replied: WYC 2 How long shalt thou speak such things? The spirit of the word of thy mouth is manyfold (The many words from thy mouth be just so much wind). NIV 2 “How long will you say such things? Your words are a blustering wind. WYC 3 Whether God supplanteth, either deceiveth, doom, and whether Almighty God destroyeth that, that is just? (Did God ever pervert judgement, and did Almighty God ever destroy what is fair?) NIV 3 Does God pervert justice? Does the Almighty pervert what is right? WYC 4 Yea, though thy sons sinned against him, and he left them in the hand of their wickedness; NIV 4 When your children sinned against him, he gave them over to the penalty of their sin. WYC 5 nevertheless, if thou risest early to God, and beseechest Almighty God, NIV 5 But if you will seek God earnestly and plead with the Almighty, WYC 6 if thou goest clean and rightful, anon he shall wake fully to thee, and shall make peaceable the dwelling place of thy rightfulness; (if thou goest clean and upright, at once he shall watch over thee, and he shall make the dwelling place of thy righteousness prosperous;) NIV 6 if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your prosperous state. WYC 7 in so much that thy former things were little, and that thy last things be multiplied greatly. (in so much that though thy first things were few, but thy last things shall be greatly multiplied.) NIV 7 Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be. WYC 8 For why, ask thou the former generations, and seek thou diligently the mind of [the] fathers (and diligently seek thou the wisdom of the forefathers). NIV 8 “Ask the former generation and find out what their ancestors learned, WYC 9 For we be men of yesterday, and know not (anything); for our days be as (a) shadow on the earth. NIV 9 for we were born only yesterday and know nothing, and our days on earth are but a shadow. WYC 10 And they shall teach thee, [and] they shall speak to thee, and (out) of their heart they shall bring forth true speeches (and they shall bring forth truth from their hearts). NIV 10 Will they not instruct you and tell you? Will they not bring forth words from their understanding? WYC 11 Whether a (bul)rush may grow without moisture? either a reed (can grow) without water? NIV 11 Can papyrus grow tall where there is no marsh? Can reeds thrive without water? WYC 12 When it is yet in the flower, neither it is taken with hand, it waxeth dry before all herbs. (When it is still flowering, and it hath not yet been picked by hand, it groweth dry before all the other plants.) NIV 12 While still growing and uncut, they wither more quickly than grass. WYC 13 So be the ways of all men, that forget God (who forget God); and the hope of an hypocrite shall perish. NIV 13 Such is the destiny of all who forget God; so perishes the hope of the godless. WYC 14 His cowardice shall not please God, and his trust shall be as a web of spiders. NIV 14 What they trust in is fragile ; what they rely on is a spider’s web. WYC 15 He shall lean, either rest, upon his house, and it shall not stand; he shall underset it, and it shall not rise up altogether. (He shall lean, or shall rest, upon his house, but it shall not stand; he shall undergird it, but it shall not endure.) NIV 15 They lean on the web, but it gives way; they cling to it, but it does not hold. WYC 16 The (bul)rush seemeth moist, before that the sun come; and in the rising of the sun, the seed thereof shall go out. NIV 16 They are like a well-watered plant in the sunshine, spreading its shoots over the garden; WYC 17 The roots thereof shall be made thick upon an heap of stones, and it shall dwell among [the] stones. NIV 17 it entwines its roots around a pile of rocks and looks for a place among the stones. WYC 18 If a man draweth it out of the place thereof, that place shall deny it, and it shall say (in effect), I know thee not. NIV 18 But when it is torn from its spot, that place disowns it and says, ‘I never saw you.’ WYC 19 For this is the gladness of his way, that again other rushes spring out of the earth. (For this is the joy of its way, that other bulrushes shall spring out of the earth.) NIV 19 Surely its life withers away, and from the soil other plants grow. WYC 20 Forsooth God shall not cast away a simple man, neither he shall address his hand to (help) wicked men; (But God shall not throw away a person who is without guile, nor shall he direct his hand to help the wicked;) NIV 20 “Surely God does not reject one who is blameless or strengthen the hands of evildoers. WYC 21 till thy mouth be filled with laughter, and thy lips with hearty song. NIV 21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. WYC 22 They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the tabernacle of wicked men shall not stand (and the tents, or the homes, 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.”
