1Then Bildad the Shuhite spoke up and said,
2“How long will you go on talking, hunting for the right words to say? Talk sense if you want us to reply!
3Do you think we're dumb animals? Do we look stupid to you?
4You tear yourself apart with your anger. Do you think the earth has to be abandoned, or the mountains moved, just because of you?
5It's certain that the life of the wicked will end like a lamp that is snuffed out—their flame will shine no more.
6The light in their home goes out, the lamp hanging above is extinguished.
7Instead of taking strong strides they stumble, and their own plans cause them to fall.
8Their own feet trip them up and they are caught in a net; as they walk along they fall into a pit.
9A trap grabs them by the heel; a snare tightens around them.
10A noose is hidden on the ground for them; a rope is stretched across the path to trip them.
11Terrors scare the wicked, coming at them from every side, chasing them, biting at their heels.
12Hunger robs them of strength; disaster waits for them when they fall.
13Disease devours their skin; deadly disease consumes their limbs.
14They are torn from the homes they trusted in and taken to the king of terrors.
15People they don't know will live in their homes; sulfur will be scattered where they used to live.
16They wither away, roots below and branches above;
17the memory of them fades from the earth; nobody remembers their names any more.
18They are thrown out of light into darkness, driven from the world.

19They have no children or descendants among their people, and no survivors where they used to live.
20People of the west are appalled at what happens to them. People of the east are shocked.
21This is what happens to the homes of the wicked, to the places of those who reject God.”
