10 They abhor me, they flee far from me, and spare not to spit in my face.
10 They detest me and keep their distance; they do not hesitate to spit in my face.
10 They abhor me; they keep aloof from me; they do not hesitate to spit at the sight of me.
10 They abhor me, they abuse me. How dare those scoundrels - they spit in my face!
10 They abhor me, they keep far from me; They do not hesitate to spit in my face.
10 They despise me and won't come near me, except to spit in my face.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 30:10
Commentary on Job 30:1-14
(Read Job 30:1-14)
Job contrasts his present condition with his former honour and authority. What little cause have men to be ambitious or proud of that which may be so easily lost, and what little confidence is to be put in it! We should not be cast down if we are despised, reviled, and hated by wicked men. We should look to Jesus, who endured the contradiction of sinners.
