1 H6810 "But now those who are younger H7832 than I have me in derision, H1 whose fathers H3988 I would have disdained H7896 to put H6629 with my sheep H3611 dogs.
2 H4100 Of what use H3581 is the strength H3027 of their hands H3624 to me, men in whom ripe age H6 has perished?
3 H1565 They are gaunt H2639 from lack H3720 and famine. H6207 They gnaw H6723 the dry ground, H570 in the gloom H4875 of waste H7722 and desolation.
4 H6998 They pluck H4408 salt herbs H7880 by the bushes. H8328 The roots H7574 of the broom H3899 are their food.
5 H1644 They are driven out 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 and in holes H6083 of the earth H3710 and of the rocks.
7 H7880 Among the bushes H5101 they bray; H2738 and under the nettles H5596 they are gathered together.
8 H1121 They are children H5036 of fools, H1121 yes, children H8034 of base men. H5217 They were flogged H776 out of the land.
10 H8581 They abhor H7368 me, they stand aloof H2820 from me, and don't hesitate H7536 to spit H6440 in my face.
11 H6605 For he has untied H3499 his cord, H6031 and afflicted H7971 me; and they have thrown H7448 off restraint H6440 before me.
12 H3225 On my right H6965 hand rise H6526 the rabble. H7971 They thrust aside H7272 my feet, H5549 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 without anyone's help.
14 H7342 As through a wide H6556 breach H857 they come, H8478 in the midst H7722 of the ruin H1556 they roll themselves in.
15 H1091 Terrors H2015 have turned H7291 on me. They chase H5082 my honor H7307 as the wind. H3444 My welfare H5674 has passed away H5645 as a cloud.
16 H5315 "Now my soul H8210 is poured out H3117 within me. Days H6040 of affliction H270 have taken hold on 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 great H3581 force H3830 is my garment H2664 disfigured. H247 It binds me about H6310 as the collar H3801 of my coat.
21 H2015 You have turned H393 to be cruel H6108 to me. With the might H3027 of your hand H7852 you persecute me.
22 H5375 You lift me up H7307 to the wind, H7392 and drive H4127 me with it. You dissolve H8454 me in the storm.
23 H3045 For I know H7725 that you will bring H4194 me to death, H1004 To the house H4150 appointed H2416 for all living.
24 H7971 "However doesn't one stretch out H3027 a hand H1164 in his fall? H6365 Or in his calamity H7769 therefore cry for help?
25 H1058 Didn't I weep H7186 for him who was in trouble? H5315 Wasn't my soul H5701 grieved H34 for the needy?
26 H6960 When I looked H2896 for good, H7451 then evil H935 came; H3176 When I waited H216 for light, H935 there came H652 darkness.
27 H4578 My heart H7570 is troubled, H1826 and doesn't rest. H3117 Days H6040 of affliction H6923 have come on 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 grows black H6106 and peels from me. My bones H2787 are burned H2721 with heat.
