The Books of Poetry
I Corinthians 1-2
My spirit is broken, my days are extinct, the grave is ready for me.
Surely there are mockers about me, and my eye dwells on their provocation.
"Lay down a pledge for me with thyself; who is there that will give surety for me?
Since thou hast closed their minds to understanding, therefore thou wilt not let them triumph.
He who informs against his friends to get a share of their property, the eyes of his children will fail.
"He has made me a byword of the peoples, and I am one before whom men spit.
My eye has grown dim from grief, and all my members are like a shadow.
Upright men are appalled at this, and the innocent stirs himself up against the godless.
Yet the righteous holds to his way, and he that has clean hands grows stronger and stronger.
But you, come on again, all of you, and I shall not find a wise man among you.
My days are past, my plans are broken off, the desires of my heart.
They make night into day; 'The light,' they say, 'is near to the darkness.'
If I look for Sheol as my house, if I spread my couch in darkness,
if I say to the pit, 'You are my father,' and to the worm, 'My mother,' or 'My sister,'
where then is my hope? Who will see my hope?
Will it go down to the bars of Sheol? Shall we descend together into the dust?"
Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
"How long will you hunt for words? Consider, and then we will speak.
Why are we counted as cattle? Why are we stupid in your sight?
You who tear yourself in your anger, shall the earth be forsaken for you, or the rock be removed out of its place?
"Yea, the light of the wicked is put out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.
The light is dark in his tent, and his lamp above him is put out.
His strong steps are shortened and his own schemes throw him down.
For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walks on a pitfall.
A trap seizes him by the heel, a snare lays hold of him.
A rope is hid for him in the ground, a trap for him in the path.
Terrors frighten him on every side, and chase him at his heels.
His strength is hunger-bitten, and calamity is ready for his stumbling.
By disease his skin is consumed, the first-born of death consumes his limbs.
He is torn from the tent in which he trusted, and is brought to the king of terrors.
In his tent dwells that which is none of his; brimstone is scattered upon his habitation.
His roots dry up beneath, and his branches wither above.
His memory perishes from the earth, and he has no name in the street.
He is thrust from light into darkness, and driven out of the world.
He has no offspring or descendant among his people, and no survivor where he used to live.
They of the west are appalled at his day, and horror seizes them of the east.
Surely such are the dwellings of the ungodly, such is the place of him who knows not God."
