Job 30:1-8 King James Version

Job Bewails His Present Affliction

30 1  But now they that are younger [1] than I have me in derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock. 2  Yea, whereto might the strength of their hands profit me, in whom old age was perished? 3  For want and famine they were solitary; [2] fleeing into the wilderness in former time desolate and waste. 4  Who cut up mallows by the bushes, and juniper roots for their meat. 5  They were driven forth from among men, (they cried after them as after a thief;) 6  To dwell in the clifts of the valleys, in caves [3] of the earth, and in the rocks. 7  Among the bushes they brayed; under the nettles they were gathered together. 8  They were children of fools, yea, children of base men: they were viler than the earth.


[1] 30:1 younger...: Heb. of fewer days than I

[2] 30:3 solitary: or, dark as the night
