Job's honour is turned into extreme contempt.
Job 30:1 But nowe they that are yonger then I, haue mee in derision, whose fathers I would haue disdained to haue set with the dogs of my flocke. Job 30:2 Yea whereto might the strength of their hands [profit] me, in whom olde age was perished? Job 30:3 For want and famine they [were] solitarie: flying into the wildernesse in former time desolate and waste: Job 30:4 Who cut vp mallowes by the bushes, and Iuniper rootes [for] their meate. Job 30:5 They were driuen foorth from among [men], (they cried after them, as [after] a thiefe.) Job 30:6 To dwell in the clifts of the valleys, in caues of the earth, and in the rockes. Job 30:7 Among the bushes they brayed: vnder the nettles they were gathered together. Job 30:8 They [were] children of fooles, yea children of base men: they were viler then the earth. Job 30:9 And now am I their song, yea I am their by-word. Job 30:10 They abhorre me, they flee farre from me, and spare not to spit in my face. Job 30:11 Because hee hath loosed my cord and afflicted me, they haue also let loose the bridle before me. Job 30:12 Upon my right [hand] rise the youth, they push away my feete, and they raise vp against mee the wayes of their destruction. Job 30:13 They marre my path, they set forward my calamitie, they [haue] no helper. Job 30:14 They came [vpon me] as a wide breaking in [of waters]: in the desolation they rolled themselues [vpon me].
His prosperity into calamity.
Job 30:15 Terrours are turned vpon mee: they pursue my soule as the wind: and my welfare passeth away as a cloude. Job 30:16 And now my soule is powred out vpon me: the dayes of affliction haue taken hold vpon me. Job 30:17 My bones are pierced in mee in the night season: and my sinewes take no rest. Job 30:18 By the great force [of my disease], is my garment changed: it bindeth mee about as the collar of my coat. Job 30:19 He hath cast mee into the myre, and I am become like dust and ashes. Job 30:20 I crie vnto thee, and thou doest not heare me: I stand vp, and thou regardest me [not]. Job 30:21 Thou art become cruell to me: with thy strong hand thou opposest thy selfe against me. Job 30:22 Thou liftest me vp to the wind: thou causest me to ride [vpon it], and dissoluest my substance. Job 30:23 For I know [that] thou wilt bring me [to] death, and [to] the house appointed for all liuing. Job 30:24 Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the graue, though they cry in his destruction. Job 30:25 Did not I weepe for him that was in trouble? was [not] my soule grieued for the poore? Job 30:26 When I looked for good, then euill came vnto mee: and when I waited for light, there came darkenes. Job 30:27 My bowels boyled and rested not: the dayes of affliction preuented mee. Job 30:28 I went mourning without the Sunne: I stood vp, [and] I cried in the Congregation. Job 30:29 I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owles. Job 30:30 My skinne is blacke vpon mee, and my bones are burnt with heat. Job 30:31 My harpe also is turned to mourning, and my organe into the voyce of them that weepe.
