1 Then Baldad the Sauchite answered, and said, 2 How long wilt thou speak these things, [how long shall] the breath of thy mouth [be] abundant in words? 3 Will the Lord be unjust when he judges; or will he that has made all things pervert justice? 4 If thy sons have sinned before him, he has cast them away because of their transgression. 5 But be thou early in prayer to the Lord Almighty. 6 If thou art pure and true, he will hearken to thy supplication, and will restore to thee the habitation of righteousness. 7 Though then thy beginning should be small, yet thy end should be unspeakably great. 8 For ask of the former generation, and search diligently among the race of [our] fathers: 9 (for we are of yesterday, and know nothing; for our life upon the earth is a shadow:) 10 shall not these teach thee, and report [to thee], and bring out words from [their] heart? 11 Does the rush flourish without water, or shall the flag grow up without moisture? 12 When it is yet on the root, and [though] it has not been cut down, does not any herb wither before it has received moisture? 13 Thus then shall be the end of all that forget the Lord: for the hope of the ungodly shall perish. 14 For his house shall be without inhabitants, and his tent shall prove a spider’s web. 15 If he should prop up his house, it shall not stand: and when he has taken hold of it, it shall not remain. 16 For it is moist under the sun, and his branch shall come forth out of his dung-heap. 17 He lies down upon a gathering of stones, and shall live in the midst of flints. 18 If [God] should destroy [him], his place shall deny him. Hast thou not seen such things, 19 that such is the overthrow of the ungodly? And out of the earth another shall grow. 20 For the Lord will by no means reject the harmless man; but he will not receive any gift of the ungodly. 21 But he will fill with laughter the mouth of the sincere, and their lips with thanksgiving. 22 But their adversaries shall clothe themselves with shame; and the habitation of the ungodly shall perish. ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ Βαλδὰδ ὁ Σαυχίτης λέγει· 2 μέχρι τίνος λαλήσεις ταῦτα, πνεῦμα πολυρρῆμον τοῦ στόματός σου; 3 μὴ ὁ Κύριος ἀδικήσει κρίνων ἢ ὁ τὰ πάντα ποιήσας ταράξει τὸ δίκαιον; 4 εἰ οἱ υἱοί σου ἥμαρτον ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ, ἀπέστειλεν ἐν χειρὶ ἀνομίας αὐτῶν. 5 σὺ δὲ ὄρθριζε πρὸς Κύριον παντοκράτορα δεόμενος. 6 εἰ καθαρὸς εἶ καὶ ἀληθινός, δεήσεως ἐπακούσεταί σου, ἀποκαταστήσει δέ σοι δίαιταν δικαιοσύνης· 7 ἔσται οὖν τὰ μὲν πρῶτά σου ὀλίγα, τὰ δὲ ἔσχατά σου ἀμύθητα. 8 ἐπερώτησον γὰρ γενεὰν πρώτην, ἐξιχνίασον δὲ κατὰ γένος πατέρων· 9 χθιζοὶ γάρ ἐσμεν καὶ οὐκ οἴδαμεν, σκιὰ γάρ ἐστιν ἡμῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὁ βίος. 10 ἦ οὐχ οὗτοί σε διδάξουσι καὶ ἀναγγελοῦσι καὶ ἐκ καρδίας ἐξάξουσι ῥήματα; 11 μὴ θάλλει πάπυρος ἄνευ ὕδατος ἢ ὑψωθήσεται βούτομον ἄνευ πότου; 12 ἔτι ὂν ἐπὶ ρίζης καὶ οὐ μὴ θερισθῇ, πρὸ τοῦ πιεῖν πᾶσα βοτάνη οὐχὶ ξηραίνεται; 13 οὕτως τοίνυν ἔσται τὰ ἔσχατα πάντων τῶν ἐπιλανθανομένων τοῦ Κυρίου· ἐλπὶς γὰρ ἀσεβοῦς ἀπολεῖται. 14 ἀοίκητος γὰρ αὐτοῦ ἔσται ὁ οἶκος, ἀράχνη δὲ αὐτοῦ ἀποβήσεται ἡ σκηνή. 15 ἐὰν ὑπερείσῃ τὴν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ, οὐ μὴ στῇ· ἐπιλαβομένου δὲ αὐτοῦ, οὐ μὴ ὑπομείνῃ· 16 ὑγρὸς γάρ ἐστιν ὑπὸ ἡλίου, καὶ ἐκ σαπρίας αὐτοῦ ὁ ράδαμνος αὐτοῦ ἐξελεύσεται. 17 ἐπὶ συναγωγὴν λίθων κοιμᾶται, ἐν δὲ μέσῳ χαλίκων ζήσεται. 18 ἐὰν καταπίῃ, ὁ τόπος ψεύσεται αὐτόν· οὐχ ἑώρακας τοιαῦτα, 19 ὅτι καταστροφὴ ἀσεβοῦς τοιαύτη, ἐκ δὲ γῆς ἄλλον ἀναβλαστήσει. 20 ὁ γὰρ Κύριος οὐ μὴ ἀποποιήσεται τὸν ἄκακον, πᾶν δὲ δῶρον ἀσεβοῦς οὐ δέξεται. 21 ἀληθινῶν δὲ στόμα ἐμπλήσει γέλωτος, τὰ δὲ χείλη αὐτῶν ἐξομολογήσεως· 22 οἱ δὲ ἐχθροὶ αὐτῶν ἐνδύσονται αἰσχύνην, δίαιτα δὲ ἀσεβοῦς οὐκ ἔσται.
