1 Then Baldad the Sauchite answered and said, 2 How long wilt thou continue? forbear, that we also may speak. 3 For wherefore have we been silent before thee like brutes? 4 Anger has possessed thee: for what if thou shouldest die; would [the earth] under heaven be desolate? or shall the mountains be overthrown from their foundations? 5 But the light of the ungodly shall be quenched, and their flame shall not go up. 6 His light [shall be] darkness in [his] habitation, and his lamp shall be put out with him. 7 Let the meanest of men spoil his goods, and let his counsel deceive [him]. 8 His foot also has been caught in a snare, [and] let it be entangled in a net. 9 And let snares come upon him: he shall strengthen those that thirst for his destruction. 10 His snare is hid in the earth, and that which shall take him is by the path. 11 Let pains destroy him round about, and let many [enemies] come about him, 12 [vex him] with distressing hunger: and a signal destruction has been prepared for him. 13 Let the soles of his feet be devoured: and death shall consume his beauty. 14 And let health be utterly banished from his tabernacle, and let distress seize upon him with a charge from the king. 15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle in his night: his excellency shall be sown with brimstone. 16 His roots shall be dried up from beneath, and his crop shall fall away from above. 17 Let his memorial perish out of the earth, and his name shall be publicly cast out. 18 Let [one] drive him from light into darkness. 19 He shall not be known among his people, nor his house preserved on the earth. 20 But strangers shall dwell in his possessions: the last groaned for him, and wonder seized the first. 21 These are the houses of the unrighteous, and this is the place of them that know not the Lord. ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ Βαλδὰδ ὁ Σαυχίτης λέγει· 2 μέχρι τίνος οὐ παύσῃ; ἐπίσχες, ἵνα καὶ αὐτοὶ λαλήσωμεν. 3 διατὶ δὲ ὥσπερ τετράποδα σεσιωπήκαμεν ἐναντίον σου; 4 κέχρηταί σοι ὀργή· τί γάρ; ἐὰν σὺ ἀποθάνῃς, ἀοίκητος ἡ ὑπ᾿ οὐρανόν; ἢ καταστραφήσεται ὄρη ἐκ θεμελίων; 5 καὶ φῶς ἀσεβῶν σβεσθήσεται, καὶ οὐκ ἀποβήσεται αὐτῶν ἡ φλόξ· 6 τὸ φῶς αὐτοῦ σκότος ἐν διαίτῃ, ὁ δὲ λύχνος ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ σβεσθήσεται. 7 θηρεύσαισαν ἐλάχιστοι τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτοῦ, σφάλαι δὲ αὐτοῦ ἡ βουλή. 8 ἐμβέβληται δὲ ὁ ποὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν παγίδι, ἐν δικτύῳ ἑλιχθείη. 9 ἔλθοισαν δὲ ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν παγίδες, κατισχύσει ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν διψῶντας. 10 κέκρυπται ἐν τῇ γῇ σχοινίον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ σύλληψις αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τρίβων. 11 κύκλῳ ὀλέσαισαν αὐτὸν ὀδύναι, πολλοὶ δὲ περὶ πόδα αὐτοῦ ἔλθοισαν 12 ἐν λιμῷ στενῷ. πτῶμα δὲ αὐτῷ ἡτοίμασται ἐξαίσιον. 13 βρωθείησαν αὐτοῦ κλῶνες ποδῶν, κατέδεται δὲ αὐτοῦ τὰ ὡραῖα θάνατος. 14 ἐκραγείη δὲ ἐκ διαίτης αὐτοῦ ἴασις, σχοίη δὲ αὐτὸν ἀνάγκη αἰτίᾳ βασιλικῇ. 15 κατασκηνώσει ἐν τῇ σκηνῇ αὐτοῦ ἐν νυκτὶ αὐτοῦ, κατασπαρήσονται τὰ εὐπρεπῆ αὐτοῦ θείῳ. 16 ὑποκάτωθεν αἱ ῥίζαι αὐτοῦ ξηρανθήσονται, καὶ ἐπάνωθεν ἐπιπεσεῖται θερισμὸς αὐτοῦ. 17 τὸ μνημόσυνον αὐτοῦ ἀπόλοιτο ἐκ γῆς, καὶ ὑπάρξει ὄνομα αὐτῷ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ἐξωτέρω. 18 ἀπώσειεν αὐτὸν ἐκ φωτὸς εἰς σκότος. 19 οὐκ ἔσται ἐπίγνωστος ἐν λαῷ αὐτοῦ, οὐδὲ σεσωσμένος ἐν τῇ ὑπ᾿ οὐρανὸν ὁ οἶκος αὐτοῦ, 20 ἀλλ᾿ ἐν τοῖς αὐτοῦ ζήσονται ἕτεροι. ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ ἐστέναξαν ἔσχατοι, πρώτους δὲ ἔσχε θαῦμα. 21 οὗτοί εἰσιν οἱ οἶκοι ἀδίκων, οὗτος δὲ ὁ τόπος τῶν μὴ εἰδότων τὸν Κύριον.
