Job 18

Wicked/Evil Man

Bildad didn’t quite say Job was a Wicked / Evil man….but it seems like it was implied.

He stated all the things that happen to a Wicked man.

5 “The lamp of a wicked man is snuffed out;
the flame of his fire stops burning.
6 The light in his tent becomes dark;
the lamp beside him goes out.
7 The vigor of his step is weakened;
his own schemes throw him down.

A wicked man has no hope.

9 A trap seizes him by the heel;
a snare holds him fast.
10 A noose is hidden for him on the ground;
a trap lies in his path.
11 Terrors startle him on every side
and dog his every step.

He lives in fear.

18 He is driven from light into the realm of darkness
and is banished from the world.
19 He has no offspring or descendants among his people,
no survivor where once he lived.

He hides and is forgotten.
