Job 30

1  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.

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; 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 cliffs of the valleys, in caves 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.

9  And now am I their song, yea, I am their byword.

10  They abhor me, they flee far from me, and spare not to spit in my face.
