018:030:001
But now they that are younger than I have me in derision,
whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.


018:030:002
Yea,
whereto might the strength of their hands profit me,
in whom old age was perished?


018:030:003
For want and famine they were solitary;
fleeing into the wilderness in former time desolate and waste.


018:030:004
Who cut up mallows by the bushes,
and juniper roots for their meat.


018:030:005
They were driven forth from among men,
(they cried after them as after a thief;)


018:030:006
To dwell in the cliffs of the valleys,
in caves of the earth,
and in the rocks.


018:030:007
Among the bushes they brayed;
under the nettles they were gathered together.


018:030:008
They were children of fools,
yea,
children of base men:
they were viler than the earth.


018:030:009
And now am I their song,
yea,
I am their byword.


018:030:010
They abhor me,
they flee far from me,
and spare not to spit in my face.


018:030:011
Because he hath loosed my cord,
and afflicted me,
they have also let loose the bridle before me.


018:030:012
Upon my right hand rise the youth;
they push away my feet,
and they raise up against me the ways of their destruction.


018:030:013
They mar my path,
they set forward my calamity,
they have no helper.


018:030:014
They came upon me as a wide breaking in of waters:
in the desolation they rolled themselves upon me.


018:030:015
Terrors are turned upon me:
they pursue my soul as the wind:
and my welfare passeth away as a cloud.


018:030:016
And now my soul is poured out upon me;
the days of affliction have taken hold upon me.


018:030:017
My bones are pierced in me in the night season:
and my sinews take no rest.


018:030:018
By the great force of my disease is my garment changed:
it bindeth me about as the collar of my coat.


018:030:019
He hath cast me into the mire,
and I am become like dust and ashes.


018:030:020
I cry unto thee,
and thou dost not hear me:
I stand up,
and thou regardest me not.


018:030:021
Thou art become cruel to me:
with thy strong hand thou opposest thyself against me.


018:030:022
Thou liftest me up to the wind;
thou causest me to ride upon it,
and dissolvest my substance.


018:030:023
For I know that thou wilt bring me to death,
and to the house appointed for all living.


018:030:024
Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the grave,
though they cry in his destruction.


018:030:025
Did not I weep for him that was in trouble?
was not my soul grieved for the poor?


018:030:026
When I looked for good,
then evil came unto me:
and when I waited for light,
there came darkness.


018:030:027
My bowels boiled,
and rested not:
the days of affliction prevented me.


018:030:028
I went mourning without the sun:
I stood up,
and I cried in the congregation.


018:030:029
I am a brother to dragons,
and a companion to owls.


018:030:030
My skin is black upon me,
and my bones are burned with heat.


018:030:031
My harp also is turned to mourning,
and my organ into the voice of them that weep.
