Job 30

Job 30:1

Job 30:4   They pluck salt-wort by the bushes; And the roots of the broom are their food.

Job 30:6   So that they dwell in frightful valleys, In holes of the earth and of the rocks.
Job 30:7   Among the bushes they bray; Under the nettles they are gathered together.
Job 30:8   They are children of fools, yea, children of base men; They were scourged out of the land.

Job 30:11   For he hath loosed his cord, and afflicted me; And they have cast off the bridle before me.

Job 30:13   They mar my path, They set forward my calamity, Even men that have no helper.
Job 30:14   As through a wide breach they come: In the midst of the ruin they roll themselves upon me.
Job 30:15   Terrors are turned upon me; They chase mine honor as the wind; And my welfare is passed away as a cloud.
Job 30:16   And now my soul is poured out within me; Days of affliction have taken hold upon me.
Job 30:17   In the night season my bones are pierced in me, And the pains that gnaw me take no rest.
Job 30:18   By God's great force is my garment disfigured; It bindeth me about as the collar of my coat.
Job 30:19   He hath cast me into the mire, And I am become like dust and ashes.
Job 30:20   I cry unto thee, and thou dost not answer me: I stand up, and thou gazest at me.
Job 30:21   Thou art turned to be cruel to me; With the might of thy hand thou persecutest me.
Job 30:22   Thou liftest me up to the wind, thou causest me to ride upon it; And thou dissolvest me in the storm.
Job 30:23   For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, And to the house appointed for all living.
Job 30:24   Howbeit doth not one stretch out the hand in his fall? Or in his calamity therefore cry for help?
Job 30:25   Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? Was not my soul grieved for the needy?
Job 30:26   When I looked for good, then evil came; And when I waited for light, there came darkness.
Job 30:27   My heart is troubled, and resteth not; Days of affliction are come upon me.
Job 30:28   I go mourning without the sun: I stand up in the assembly, and cry for help.
