Job 30 ©
1 Job lamenteth the change of his honour into extreme contempt; 15 and of his prosperity into the deepest distress.
BUT now they that are 1younger than I ahave me in derision, bwhose fathers I would have cdisdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.
Yea, whereto might the strength of their hands profit me, in whom old age was perished?
They fwere driven forth from among men, (they cried after them as after a thief;)
To dwell in the clifts of the valleys, in 4caves of the earth, and in the rocks.
They were children of fools, yea, children of 5*base men: they were *viler than the earth.
Thou art 8become cruel to me: with 9thy strong hand thou opposest thyself against me.
For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, and zto the house appointed for all living.
Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the 11grave, though they cry in his destruction.
fMy skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat.
