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.
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.
30 H5785 My skin H7835 is black [H8804] H6106 upon me, and my bones H2787 are burned [H8804] H2721 with heat.
