"He has alienated my brothers1 from me; my acquaintances are completely estranged from me.2
My kinsmen have gone away; my friends3 have forgotten me.
My guests4 and my maidservants5 count me a stranger; they look upon me as an alien.
I summon my servant, but he does not answer, though I beg him with my own mouth.
My breath is offensive to my wife; I am loathsome6 to my own brothers.
Even the little boys7 scorn me; when I appear, they ridicule me.8
All my intimate friends9 detest me;10 those I love have turned against me.11
