English Standard Version (ESV)


Job 18

18:1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:

“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?

“Indeed, 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 its mesh.
A trap seizes him by the heel;
a snare lays hold of him.
10 A rope is hidden for him in the ground,
a trap for him in the path.
11 Terrors frighten him on every side,
and chase him at his heels.
12 His strength is famished,
and calamity is ready for his stumbling.
13 It consumes the parts of his skin;
the firstborn of death consumes his limbs.
14 He is torn from the tent in which he trusted
and is brought to the king of terrors.
15 In his tent dwells that which is none of his;
sulfur is scattered over his habitation.
16 His roots dry up beneath,
and his branches wither above.
17 His memory perishes from the earth,
and he has no name in the street.
18 He is thrust from light into darkness,
and driven out of the world.
19 He has no posterity or progeny among his people,
and no survivor where he used to live.
20 They of the west are appalled at his day,
and horror seizes them of the east.
21 Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous,
such is the place of him who knows not God.”

Luke 4:42-44

42 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desolate place. And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them, 43 but he said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.” 44 And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea.

Mark 1:35-39

35 And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, 37 and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.” 38 And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.” 39 And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons.

Matthew 4:23-25

23 And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. 24 So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, epileptics, and paralytics, and he healed them. 25 And great crowds followed him from Galilee and the Decapolis, and from Jerusalem and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.


King James Version (KJV)


Job 18:1-21

1Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,2How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak.3Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?4He teareth himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?5Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.6The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.7The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.8For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.9The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.10The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.12His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.13It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.14His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.15It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.16His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.17His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.18He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.19He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.20They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.21Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.

Luke 4:42-44

42And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.43And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.44And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

Mark 1:35-39

35And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.36And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.37And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.38And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.39And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

Matthew 4:23-25

23And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.24And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.25And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
