Job 18:1-4

Bildad speaks to Job again

18:1Now Bildad tells Job how God punishes bad people. He tells Job to listen to people who can help him. He says that Job must become wise. Then he will understand what has happened to him.

1 Then Bildad, the man from Shuah, replied. This is what he said:

2 ‘You should not continue to talk like that!

Stop and think carefully. Then we can talk.

3 You should not think that we are as foolish as cows.

4 You are so angry that you are hurting yourself.

You will never change the way that things happen in the world.

Your anger will not cause the earth to shake,

or any rocks to move from their places.
