Job's honour is turned into extreme contempt.
Job 30:1 Bvt now they that are my inferiours & yonger then I, haue me in derision: yee eue they, whose fathers I wolde haue thought scorne to haue set wt the dogges of my catell. Job 30:2 The power & stregth of their hades might do me no good, & as for their age, it is spet & past awaye without eny profit. Job 30:3 For very misery & honger, they wente aboute in the wildernesse like wretches & beggers, Job 30:4 pluckynge vp herbes from amonge the busshes, & the Iunipers rote was their meate. Job 30:5 And when they were dryuen forth, men cried after them, as it had bene after a thefe. Job 30:6 Their dwellinge was beside foule brokes, yee in the caues & dennes of the earth. Job 30:7 Vpo the drye heeth wete they aboute crienge, & in the brome hilles they gathered them together. Job 30:8 They were the children of fooles & vylanes, which are deed awaye fro the worlde. Job 30:9 Now am I their songe, & am become their iestinge stocke. Job 30:10 they abhorre me, they fle farre fro me & stayne my face wt spetle. Job 30:11 For ye LORDE hath opened his quyuer, he hath hytt me, & put a brydle in my mouth. Job 30:12 Vpon my right hade they rose together agaynst me, they haue hurte my fete, made awaye to destroye me, Job 30:13 & my path haue they clene marred. It was so easy for them to do me harme, that they neded no man to helpe the. Job 30:14 They fell vpon me, as it had bene ye breakynge in of waters, & came in by heapes to destroye me.
His prosperity into calamity.
Job 30:15 Fearfulnesse is turned agaynst me. Myne honoure vanisheth awaye more swiftly then wynde, & my prosperite departeth hece like as it were a cloude. Job 30:16 Therfore is my mynde poured full of heuynesse, & ye dayes of trouble haue take holde vpon me. Job 30:17 My bones are pearsed thorow in ye night season, & my synewes take no rest. Job 30:18 With all their power haue they chaunged my garmet, & gyrded me therwith, as it were wt a coate. Job 30:19 I am eue as it were claye, & am become like asshes & dust. Job 30:20 Whe I crie vnto the, thou doest not heare me: & though I stonde before the, yet thou regardest me not. Job 30:21 Thou art become myne enemye, & wt yi violet hade thou takest parte agaynst me. Job 30:22 In tymes past thou didest set me vp an hye, as it were aboue ye winde, but now hast thou geue me a very sore fall. Job 30:23 Sure I am, yt thou wilt delyuer me vnto death: where as a lodgyng is prepared for all me Job 30:24 Now vse not me to do violece vnto the, yt are destroyed allready: but where hurte is done, there vse thei to helpe. Job 30:25 Dyd not I wepe in ye tyme of trouble? Had not my soule copassion vpo ye poore? Job 30:26 Yet neuerthelesse where as I loked for good, euell happened vnto me: and where as I waited for light, there came darcknesse. Job 30:27 My bowels seeth wt in me & take no rest, for ye dayes of my trouble are come vpo me. Job 30:28 Mekely & lowly came I in, yee & without eny displeasure: I stode vp in ye cogregacion, & commoned with the Job 30:29 But now. I am a copanyon of dragons, & a felowe of Esiriches. Job 30:30 My skynne vpo me is turned to black, & my bones are bret wt heate: Job 30:31 my harpe is turned to sorow, & my pipe to wepinge.
