Job 30

30:1 But now [they that are] younger than I, have me in
 derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to set with the
 dogs of my flock.
30:2 Yes, to what [might] the strength of their hands [profit]
 me, in whom old age had perished?
30:3 For want and famine [they were] solitary; fleeing into the
 wilderness in former time desolate and waste.
30:4 Who cut up mallows by the bushes, and juniper roots [for]
 their food.
30:5 They were driven forth from among [men], (they cried after
 them, as [after] a thief;)
30:6 To dwell in the clefts of the valleys, [in] caves of the
 earth, and [in] the rocks.
30:7 Among the bushes they brayed; under the nettles they were
30:8 [They were] children of fools, yes, children of base men:
 they were viler than the earth.
30:9 And now I am their song, yes, I am their by-word.
30:10 They abhor me, they flee far from me, and spare not to
 spit in my face.
30:11 Because he hath loosed my cord, and afflicted me, they
 have also let loose the bridle before me.
30:12 Upon [my] right [hand] rise the youth; they push away my
 feet, and they raise up against me the ways of their
30:13 They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, they have
 no helper.
30:14 They came [upon me] as a wide breaking in [of waters]: in
 the desolation they rolled themselves [upon me].
30:15 Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the
 wind: and my welfare passeth away as a cloud.
30:16 And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of
 affliction have taken hold upon me.
30:17 My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my
 sinews take no rest.
30:18 By the great force [of my disease] is my garment changed:
 it bindeth me about as the collar of my coat.
30:19 He hath cast me into the mire, and I have become like dust
 and ashes.
30:20 I cry to thee, and thou dost not hear me: I stand up, and
 thou regardest me [not].
30:21 Thou hast become cruel to me: with thy strong hand thou
 opposest thyself against me.
30:22 Thou liftest me up to the wind; thou causest me to ride
 [upon it], and dissolvest my substance.
30:23 For I know [that] thou wilt bring me [to] death, and [to]
 the house appointed for all living.
30:24 Yet he will not stretch out [his] hand to the grave,
 though they cry in his destruction.
30:25 Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? was [not] my
 soul grieved for the poor?
30:26 When I looked for good, then evil came: and when I waited
 for light, there came darkness.
30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction
 came upon me.
30:28 I went mourning without the sun: I stood up, [and] I cried
 in the congregation.
30:29 I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls.
30:30 My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with
30:31 My harp also is [turned] to mourning, and my organ into
 the voice of them that weep.
