Job 30

  1 H6810 But now they that are younger H3117   H7832 than I have me in derision [H8804]   H1 , whose fathers H3988 I would have disdained [H8804]   H7896 to have set [H8800]   H3611 with the dogs H6629 of my flock.
  2 H4100 Yea, whereto H3581 might the strength H3027 of their hands H3624 profit me, in whom old age H6 was perished [H8804]  ?
  3 H2639 For want H3720 and famine H1565 they were solitary H6207 ; fleeing [H8802]   H6723 into the wilderness H570 in former time H7722 desolate H4875 and waste.
  4 H6998 Who cut up [H8801]   H4408 mallows H7880 by the bushes H7574 , and juniper H8328 roots H3899 for their meat.
  5 H1644 They were driven forth [H8792]   H1460 from among H7321 men, (they cried [H8686]   H1590 after them as after a thief;)
  6 H7931 To dwell [H8800]   H6178 in the clifts H5158 of the valleys H2356 , in caves H6083 of the earth H3710 , and in the rocks.
  7 H7880 Among the bushes H5101 they brayed [H8799]   H2738 ; under the nettles H5596 they were gathered together [H8792]  .
  8 H1121 They were children H5036 of fools H1121 , yea, children H8034 of base men H5217 : they were viler [H8738]   H776 than the earth.
  9 H5058 And now am I their song H4405 , yea, I am their byword.
  10 H8581 They abhor [H8765]   H7368 me, they flee far [H8804]   H2820 from me, and spare [H8804]   H7536 not to spit H6440 in my face.
  11 H6605 Because he hath loosed [H8765]   H3499 my cord H6031 , and afflicted [H8762]   H7971 me, they have also let loose [H8765]   H7448 the bridle H6440 before me.
  12 H3225 Upon my right H6965 hand rise [H8799]   H6526 the youth H7971 ; they push away [H8765]   H7272 my feet H5549 , and they raise up [H8799]   H734 against me the ways H343 of their destruction.
  13 H5420 They mar [H8804]   H5410 my path H3276 , they set forward [H8686]   H1942 my calamity [H8675]   H1962   H5826 , they have no helper [H8802]  .
  14 H857 They came [H8799]   H7342 upon me as a wide H6556 breaking H8478 in of waters : in H7722 the desolation H1556 they rolled [H8701]   themselves upon me .
  15 H1091 Terrors H2015 are turned [H8717]   H7291 upon me: they pursue [H8799]   H5082 my soul H7307 as the wind H3444 : and my welfare H5674 passeth away [H8804]   H5645 as a cloud.
  16 H5315 And now my soul H8210 is poured out [H8691]   H3117 upon me; the days H6040 of affliction H270 have taken hold [H8799]   upon me.
  17 H6106 My bones H5365 are pierced [H8765]   H3915 in me in the night season H6207 : and my sinews [H8802]   H7901 take no rest [H8799]  .
  18 H7230 By the great H3581 force H3830 of my disease is my garment H2664 changed [H8691]   H247 : it bindeth me about [H8799]   H6310 as the collar H3801 of my coat.
  19 H3384 He hath cast [H8689]   H2563 me into the mire H4911 , and I am become like [H8691]   H6083 dust H665 and ashes.
  20 H7768 I cry [H8762]   H6030 unto thee, and thou dost not hear [H8799]   H5975 me: I stand up [H8804]   H995 , and thou regardest [H8709]   me not .
  21 H2015 Thou art become [H8735]   H393 cruel H6108 to me: with thy strong H3027 hand H7852 thou opposest [H8799]   thyself against me.
  22 H5375 Thou liftest me up [H8799]   H7307 to the wind H7392 ; thou causest me to ride [H8686]   H4127 upon it, and dissolvest [H8787]   H8454 my substance [H8675]   H7738   [H8762]  .
  23 H3045 For I know [H8804]   H7725 that thou wilt bring [H8686]   H4194 me to death H1004 , and to the house H4150 appointed H2416 for all living.
  24 H7971 Howbeit he will not stretch out [H8799]   H3027 his hand H1164 to the grave H7769 , though they cry H6365 in his destruction.
  25 H1058 Did not I weep [H8804]   H7186 for him that was in trouble H3117   H5315 ? was not my soul H5701 grieved [H8804]   H34 for the poor?
  26 H6960 When I looked [H8765]   H2896 for good H7451 , then evil H935 came [H8799]   H3176 unto me : and when I waited [H8762]   H216 for light H935 , there came [H8799]   H652 darkness.
  27 H4578 My bowels H7570 boiled [H8795]   H1826 , and rested [H8804]   H3117 not: the days H6040 of affliction H6923 prevented [H8765]   me.
  28 H1980 I went [H8765]   H6937 mourning [H8802]   H2535 without the sun H6965 : I stood up [H8804]   H7768 , and I cried [H8762]   H6951 in the congregation.
  29 H251 I am a brother H8577 to dragons H7453 , and a companion H1323 to owls H3284  .
  30 H5785 My skin H7835 is black [H8804]   H6106 upon me, and my bones H2787 are burned [H8804]   H2721 with heat.
  31 H3658 My harp H60 also is turned to mourning H5748 , and my organ H6963 into the voice H1058 of them that weep [H8802]  .
