1 H6810 But now they that are younger H7832 than I have me in derision, H1 Whose fathers H3988 I disdained H7896 to set H3611 with the dogs H6629 of my flock.
2 H3581 Yea, the strength H3027 of their hands, H4100 whereto H3624 should it profit me? Men in whom ripe age H6 is perished.
3 H1565 They are gaunt H2639 with want H3720 and famine; H6207 They gnaw H6723 the dry ground, H570 in the gloom H4875 of wasteness H7722 and desolation.
4 H6998 They pluck H4408 salt-wort H7880 by the bushes; H8328 And the roots H7574 of the broom H3899 are their food.
5 H1644 They are driven forth H1460 from the midst H7321 of men; They cry H1590 after them as after a thief;
6 H7931 So that they dwell H6178 in frightful H5158 valleys, H2356 In holes H6083 of the earth H3710 and of the rocks.
8 H1121 They are children H5036 of fools, H1121 yea, children H8034 of base men; H5217 They were scourged H776 out of the land.
10 H8581 They abhor H7368 me, they stand aloof H2820 from me, And spare H7536 not to spit H6440 in my face.
11 H6605 For he hath loosed H3499 his cord, H6031 and afflicted H7971 me; And they have cast H7448 off the bridle H6440 before me.
12 H3225 Upon my right H6965 hand rise H6526 the rabble; H7971 They thrust aside H7272 my feet, H5549 And they cast up H734 against me their ways H343 of destruction.
13 H5420 They mar H5410 my path, H3276 They set forward H1942 my calamity, H5826 Even men that have no helper.
14 H7342 As through a wide H6556 breach H857 they come: H8478 In the midst H7722 of the ruin H1556 they roll themselves upon me.
15 H1091 Terrors H2015 are turned H7291 upon me; They chase H5082 mine honor H7307 as the wind; H3444 And my welfare H5674 is passed away H5645 as a cloud.
16 H5315 And now my soul H8210 is poured out H3117 within me; Days H6040 of affliction H270 have taken hold upon me.
17 H3915 In the night season H6106 my bones H5365 are pierced H6207 in me, And the pains that gnaw H7901 me take no rest.
18 H7230 By God's great H3581 force H3830 is my garment H2664 disfigured; H247 It bindeth me about H6310 as the collar H3801 of my coat.
20 H7768 I cry H6030 unto thee, and thou dost not answer H5975 me: I stand up, H995 and thou gazest at me.
21 H2015 Thou art turned H393 to be cruel H6108 to me; With the might H3027 of thy hand H7852 thou persecutest me.
22 H5375 Thou liftest me up H7307 to the wind, H7392 thou causest me to ride H4127 upon it; And thou dissolvest H8454 me in the storm.
23 H3045 For I know H7725 that thou wilt bring H4194 me to death, H1004 And to the house H4150 appointed H2416 for all living.
24 H7971 Howbeit doth not one stretch out H3027 the hand H1164 in his fall? H6365 Or in his calamity H7769 therefore cry for help?
25 H1058 Did not I weep H7186 for him that was in trouble? H5315 Was not my soul H5701 grieved H34 for the needy?
26 H6960 When I looked H2896 for good, H7451 then evil H935 came; H3176 And when I waited H216 for light, H935 there came H652 darkness.
27 H4578 My heart H7570 is troubled, H1826 and resteth H3117 not; Days H6040 of affliction H6923 are come upon me.
28 H1980 I go H6937 mourning H2535 without the sun: H6965 I stand up H6951 in the assembly, H7768 and cry for help.
30 H5785 My skin H7835 is black, H6106 and falleth from me, And my bones H2787 are burned H2721 with heat.
