Job 8:1-10, 20-22

Bildad Speaks: Job Should Repent

8Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
2 ‘How long will you say these things,
   and the words of your mouth be a great wind?
3 Does God pervert justice?
   Or does the Almighty* pervert the right?
4 If your children sinned against him,
   he delivered them into the power of their transgression.
5 If you will seek God
   and make supplication to the Almighty,*
6 if you are pure and upright,
   surely then he will rouse himself for you
   and restore to you your rightful place.
7 Though your beginning was small,
   your latter days will be very great.


8 ‘For inquire now of bygone generations,
   and consider what their ancestors have found;
9 for we are but of yesterday, and we know nothing,
   for our days on earth are but a shadow.
10 Will they not teach you and tell you
   and utter words out of their understanding?


20 ‘See, God will not reject a blameless person,
   nor take the hand of evildoers.
21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter,
   and your lips with shouts of joy.
22 Those who hate you will be clothed with shame,
   and the tent of the wicked will be no more.’
