1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered,

1 וַ֭יַּעַן בִּלְדַּ֥ד הַשּׁוּחִ֗י וַיֹאמַֽר1׃

2 "How long will you speak these things? Shall the words of your mouth be a mighty wind?

2 עַד־אָ֥ן תְּמַלֶּל־אֵ֑לֶּה וְר֥וּחַ כַּ֝בִּיר אִמְרֵי־פִֽיךָ׃

3 Does God pervert justice? Or does the Almighty pervert righteousness?

3 הַ֭אֵל יְעַוֵּ֣ת מִשְׁפָּ֑ט וְאִםשַ֝־דַּ֗י יְעַוֵּֽת־צֶֽדֶק׃

4 If your children have sinned against him, He has delivered them into the hand of their disobedience;

4 אִם־בָּנֶ֥יךָ חָֽטְאוּ־לֹ֑ו וַֽ֝יְשַׁלְּחֵ֗ם בְּיַד־פִּשְׁעָֽם׃

5 If you want to seek God diligently, Make your supplication to the Almighty.

5 אִם־אַ֭תָּה תְּשַׁחֵ֣ר אֶל־אֵ֑ל וְאֶלשַ֝־דַּ֗י תִּתְחַנָּֽן׃

6 If you were pure and upright, Surely now he would awaken for you, And make the habitation of your righteousness prosperous.

6 אִם־זַ֥ךְ וְיָשָׁ֗ר אָ֥תָּה כִּי־עַ֭תָּה יָעִ֣יר עָלֶ֑יךָ וְ֝שִׁלַּ֗ם נְוַ֣ת צִדְקֶֽךָ׃

7 Though your beginning was small, Yet your latter end would greatly increase.

7 וְהָיָ֣ה רֵאשִׁיתְךָ֣ מִצְעָ֑ר וְ֝אַחֲרִיתְךָ֗ יִשְׂגֶּ֥ה מְאֹֽד׃

8 "Please inquire of past generations, Find out about the learning of their fathers.

8 כִּֽי־שְׁאַל־נָ֭א לְדֹ֣ר רִישֹׁ֑ון וְ֝כֹונֵ֗ן לְחֵ֣קֶר אֲבֹותָֽם׃

9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, Because our days on earth are a shadow.)

9 כִּֽי־תְמֹ֣ול אֲ֭נַחְנוּ וְלֹ֣א נֵדָ֑ע כִּ֤י צֵ֖ל יָמֵ֣ינוּ עֲלֵי־אָֽרֶץ׃

10 Shall they not teach you, tell you, And utter words out of their heart?

10 הֲלֹא־הֵ֣ם יֹ֭ורוּךָ יֹ֣אמְרוּ לָ֑ךְ וּ֝מִלִּבָּ֗ם יֹוצִ֥אוּ מִלִּֽים׃

11 "Can the papyrus grow up without mire? Can the rushes grow without water?

11 הֲיִֽגְאֶה־גֹּ֭מֶא בְּלֹ֣א בִצָּ֑ה יִשְׂגֶּה־אָ֥חוּ בְלִי־מָֽיִם׃

12 While it is yet in its greenness, not cut down, It withers before any other reed.

12 עֹדֶ֣נּוּ בְ֭אִבֹּו לֹ֣א יִקָּטֵ֑ף וְלִפְנֵ֖י כָל־חָצִ֣יר יִיבָֽשׁ׃

13 So are the paths of all who forget God. The hope of the godless man shall perish,

13 כֵּ֗ן אָ֭רְחֹות כָּל־שֹׁ֣כְחֵי אֵ֑ל וְתִקְוַ֖ת חָנֵ֣ף תֹּאבֵֽד׃

14 Whose confidence shall break apart, Whose trust is a spider's web.

14 אֲשֶׁר־יָקֹ֥וט כִּסְלֹ֑ו וּבֵ֥ית עַ֝כָּבִ֗ישׁ מִבְטַחֹֽו׃

15 He shall lean on his house, but it shall not stand. He shall cling to it, but it shall not endure.

15 יִשָּׁעֵ֣ן עַל־בֵּ֭יתֹו וְלֹ֣א יַעֲמֹ֑ד יַחֲזִ֥יק בֹּ֝֗ו וְלֹ֣א יָקֽוּם׃

16 He is green before the sun, His shoots go forth over his garden.

16 רָטֹ֣ב ה֖וּא לִפְנֵי־שָׁ֑מֶשׁ וְעַ֥ל3 גַּ֝נָּתֹ֗ו יֹֽנַקְתֹּ֥ו3 תֵצֵֽא׃

17 His roots are wrapped around the rock pile, He sees the place of stones.

17 עַל־גַּ֭ל שָֽׁרָשָׁ֣יו יְסֻבָּ֑כוּ בֵּ֖ית אֲבָנִ֣ים יֶחֱזֶֽה׃

18 If he is destroyed from his place, Then it shall deny him, saying, 'I have not seen you.'

18 אִם־יְבַלְּעֶ֥נּוּ מִמְּקֹומֹ֑ו וְכִ֥חֶשׁ בֹּ֝֗ו לֹ֣א רְאִיתִֽיךָ׃

19 Behold, this is the joy of his way: Out of the earth shall others spring.

19 הֶן־ה֭וּא מְשֹׂ֣ושׂ דַּרְכֹּ֑ו וּ֝מֵעָפָ֗ר אַחֵ֥ר יִצְמָֽחוּ׃

20 "Behold, God will not cast away a blameless man, Neither will he uphold the evil-doers.

20 הֶן־אֵ֭ל לֹ֣א יִמְאַס־תָּ֑ם וְלֹֽא־יַ֝חֲזִ֗יק בְּיַד־מְרֵעִֽים׃

21 He will still fill your mouth with laughter, Your lips with shouting.

21 עַד־יְמַלֵּ֣ה שְׂחֹ֣וק פִּ֑יךָ וּשְׂפָתֶ֥יךָ תְרוּעָֽה׃

22 Those who hate you shall be clothed with shame. The tent of the wicked shall be no more."

22 שֹׂנְאֶ֥יךָ יִלְבְּשׁוּ־בֹ֑שֶׁת וְאֹ֖הֶל רְשָׁעִ֣ים אֵינֶֽנּוּ׃
