KJV JOB30 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB29.htm JOB31.htm
30:1 But now [they that are] younger [H6810] [H3117] than I have me in derision [H7832] , whose fathers [H1] I would have disdained [H3988] to have set [H7896] with the dogs [H3611] of my flock [H6629] .(younger: Heb. of fewer days than I)
30:2 Yea, whereto [H4100] [might] the strength [H3581] of their hands [H3027] [profit] me, in whom old age [H3624] was perished [H6] ?
30:3 For want [H2639] and famine [H3720] [they were] solitary [H1565] ; fleeing [H6207] into the wilderness [H6723] in former time [H570] desolate [H7722] and waste [H4875] .(solitary: or, dark as the night)(in: Heb. yesternight)
30:4 Who cut up [H6998] mallows [H4408] by the bushes [H7880] , and juniper [H7574] roots [H8328] [for] their meat [H3899] .
30:5 They were driven forth [H1644] from among [H1460] [men], (they cried [H7321] after them as [after] a thief [H1590] ;)
30:6 To dwell [H7931] in the clifts [H6178] of the valleys [H5158] , [in] caves [H2356] of the earth [H6083] , and [in] the rocks [H3710] .(caves: Heb. holes)
30:7 Among the bushes [H7880] they brayed [H5101] ; under the nettles [H2738] they were gathered together [H5596] .
30:8 [They were] children [H1121] of fools [H5036] , yea, children [H1121] of base men [H8034] : they were viler [H5217] than the earth [H776] .(base: Heb. men of no name)
30:9 And now am I their song [H5058] , yea, I am their byword [H4405] .
30:10 They abhor [H8581] me, they flee far [H7368] from me, and spare [H2820] not to spit [H7536] in my face [H6440] .(and: Heb. and withhold not spittle from)
30:11 Because he hath loosed [H6605] my cord [H3499] , and afflicted [H6031] me, they have also let loose [H7971] the bridle [H7448] before [H6440] me.
30:12 Upon [my] right [H3225] [hand] rise [H6965] the youth [H6526] ; they push away [H7971] my feet [H7272] , and they raise up [H5549] against me the ways [H734] of their destruction [H343] .
30:13 They mar [H5420] my path [H5410] , they set forward [H3276] my calamity [H1942] [H1962] , they have no helper [H5826] .
30:14 They came [H857] [upon me] as a wide [H7342] breaking [H6556] in [of waters]: in [H8478] the desolation [H7722] they rolled [H1556] themselves [upon me].
30:15 Terrors [H1091] are turned [H2015] upon me: they pursue [H7291] my soul [H5082] as the wind [H7307] : and my welfare [H3444] passeth away [H5674] as a cloud [H5645] .(my soul: Heb. my principal one)
30:16 And now my soul [H5315] is poured out [H8210] upon me; the days [H3117] of affliction [H6040] have taken hold [H270] upon me.
30:17 My bones [H6106] are pierced [H5365] in me in the night season [H3915] : and my sinews [H6207] take no rest [H7901] .
30:18 By the great [H7230] force [H3581] [of my disease] is my garment [H3830] changed [H2664] : it bindeth me about [H247] as the collar [H6310] of my coat [H3801] .
30:19 He hath cast [H3384] me into the mire [H2563] , and I am become like [H4911] dust [H6083] and ashes [H665] .
30:20 I cry [H7768] unto thee, and thou dost not hear [H6030] me: I stand up [H5975] , and thou regardest [H995] me [not].
30:21 Thou art become [H2015] cruel [H393] to me: with thy strong [H6108] hand [H3027] thou opposest [H7852] thyself against me.(become: Heb. turned to be cruel)(thy: Heb. the strength of thy hand)
30:22 Thou liftest me up [H5375] to the wind [H7307] ; thou causest me to ride [H7392] [upon it], and dissolvest [H4127] my substance [H8454] [H7738] .(substance: or, wisdom)
30:23 For I know [H3045] [that] thou wilt bring [H7725] me [to] death [H4194] , and [to] the house [H1004] appointed [H4150] for all living [H2416] .
30:24 Howbeit he will not stretch out [H7971] [his] hand [H3027] to the grave [H1164] , though they cry [H7769] in his destruction [H6365] .(grave: Heb. heap)
30:25 Did not I weep [H1058] for him that was in trouble [H7186] [H3117] ? was [not] my soul [H5315] grieved [H5701] for the poor [H34] ?(in trouble: Heb. hard of day?)
30:26 When I looked [H6960] for good [H2896] , then evil [H7451] came [H935] [unto me]: and when I waited [H3176] for light [H216] , there came [H935] darkness [H652] .
30:27 My bowels [H4578] boiled [H7570] , and rested [H1826] not: the days [H3117] of affliction [H6040] prevented [H6923] me.
30:28 I went [H1980] mourning [H6937] without the sun [H2535] : I stood up [H6965] , [and] I cried [H7768] in the congregation [H6951] .
30:29 I am a brother [H251] to dragons [H8577] , and a companion [H7453] to owls [H1323] [H3284] .(owls: or, ostriches)
30:30 My skin [H5785] is black [H7835] upon me, and my bones [H6106] are burned [H2787] with heat [H2721] .
30:31 My harp [H3658] also is [turned] to mourning [H60] , and my organ [H5748] into the voice [H6963] of them that weep [H1058] .
