Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Bildad sheweth Gods iustice, in dealing with men according to their workes. 8 He alledgeth antiquitie to proue the certaine destruction of the Hypocrite. 20 Hee applieth Gods iust dealing to Iob.
1Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
2How long wilt thou speake these things? and how long shall the wordes of thy mouth be like a strong wind?
3Doth God peruert iudgement? or doth the Almightie peruert iustice?3
4If thy children haue sinned against him, and he haue cast them away for their transgression:4
5If thou wouldest seeke vnto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almightie:5
6If thou wert pure and vpright, surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousnes prosperous.
7Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
8For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thy selfe to the search of their fathers.8
9(For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our dayes vpon earth are a shadow.)9
10Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, & vtter words out of their heart?
11Can the rush growe vp without myre? can the flag growe without water?
12Whilest it is yet in his greennesse, and not cut downe, it withereth before any other herbe.12
13So are the paths of all that forget God, and the hypocrites hope shall perish:13
14Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spiders web.14
15He shall leane vpon his house, but it shall not stand: he shal hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
16He is greene before the sunne, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.
17His roots are wrapped about the heape, and seeth the place of stones.
18If he destroy him from his place, then it shal denie him, saying, I haue not seene thee.
19Beholde, this is the ioy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.
20Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will hee helpe the euill doers:20
21Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with reioycing.21
22They that hate thee shall be cloathed with shame, and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.22
