1But now they mock #Jb 12:4Jr 20:7Lm 3:14 me,
men younger than I am,
whose fathers I would have refused to put
with my sheep dogs.
2What use to me was the strength of their hands?
Their vigor had left them.
3Emaciated from poverty and hunger,
they gnawed the dry land,
the desolate wasteland by night.
4They plucked mallow # Or saltwort #Jb 12:4Jr 20:7Lm 3:14 among the shrubs,
and the roots of the broom tree were their food.
5They were expelled from human society;
people shouted at them as if they were thieves.
6They are living on the slopes of the wadis,
among the rocks and in holes in the ground.
7They bray among the shrubs;
they huddle beneath the thistles.
8Foolish #Pr 26:7Ec 7:5Is 32:5-6 men, without even a name.
They were forced to leave the land.
9Now I am mocked by their songs; #Jb 12:4|NoBook| 30:1Lm 3:14
I have become an object of scorn to them.
10They despise me and keep their distance from me; #Jb 19:19Ps 89:38Am 5:10
they do not hesitate to spit #Nm 12:14Is 50:6Mt 26:67 in my face.
11Because God has loosened my # Alt Hb tradition, LXX, Vg read His bowstring and oppressed me,
they have cast off restraint in my presence. #Jb 12:18|NoBook| 29:20Ps 32:9
12The rabble # Hb obscure rise up at my right;
they trap # Lit stretch out my feet
and construct their siege ramp # Lit and raise up their destructive paths against me. #Jb 16:10|NoBook| 19:12Ps 140:4-5
13They tear up my path;
they contribute to my destruction, #Jb 6:2Ps 57:1Pr 19:13
without anyone to help them.
14They advance as through a gaping breach;
they keep rolling in through the ruins. #Jb 16:14Jl 2:7
15Terrors #Jb 18:11|NoBook| 27:20Ps 73:19 are turned loose against me;
they chase my dignity away like the wind,
and my prosperity has passed by like a cloud.
16Now my life is poured out before my eyes,
and days of suffering #Jb 10:15|NoBook| 30:27|NoBook| 36:21 have seized me.
17Night pierces my bones,
but my gnawing pains never rest. #Jb 33:19Ps 6:2|NoBook| 38:3
18My clothing is distorted with great force;
He chokes me by the neck of my garment. # Hb obscure
19He throws me into the mud,
and I have become like dust and ashes. #Jb 16:15Ps 7:5|NoBook| 75:10
20I cry out to You for help, but You do not answer me; #Jb 19:7Ps 18:4188:13-14
when I stand up, You merely look at me.
21You have turned against me with cruelty;
You harass #Gn 49:23Jb 16:9Ps 55:3 me with Your strong hand.
22You lift me up on the wind and make me ride it;
You scatter me in the storm. #Jb 9:17Ps 83:15Jnh 1:4
23Yes, I know that You will lead me to death —
the place #Jb 3:15|NoBook| 17:13Ec 12:5 appointed for all who live.
24Yet no one would stretch out his hand
against a ruined man # Lit a heap of ruins
when he cries out to him for help
because of his distress. #Jb 12:5|NoBook| 31:29Pr 24:22
25Have I not wept for those who have fallen on hard times?
Has my soul not grieved for the needy? #Jb 5:15|NoBook| 24:4|NoBook| 31:19
26But when I hoped for good, evil came;
when I looked for light, darkness #Jb 19:8Is 59:9Lm 3:2 came.
27I am churning within # Lit My bowels boil and cannot rest;
days of suffering confront me.
28I walk about blackened, but not by the sun. # Or walk in sunless gloom
I stood in the assembly and cried out for help.
29I have become a brother to jackals
and a companion of ostriches.
30My skin blackens and flakes off, # Lit blackens away from me
and my bones burn with fever. #Ps 102:3Lm 4:8|NoBook| 5:10
31My lyre is used for mourning
and my flute for the sound of weeping. #Is 24:8Ezk 26:13Mt 11:17
