Job 30:1-10

1 But men younger than I am make fun of me now! Their fathers have always been so worthless that I wouldn't let them help my dogs guard sheep.
2 They were a bunch of worn-out men, too weak to do any work for me.
3 They were so poor and hungry that they would gnaw dry roots - at night, in wild, desolate places.
4 They pulled up the plants of the desert and ate them, even the tasteless roots of the broom tree!
5 Everyone drove them away with shouts, as if they were shouting at thieves.
6 They had to live in caves, in holes dug in the sides of cliffs.
7 Out in the wilds they howled like animals and huddled together under the bushes.
8 A worthless bunch of nameless nobodies! They were driven out of the land.
9 Now they come and laugh at me; I am nothing but a joke to them.
10 They treat me with disgust; they think they are too good for me, and even come and spit in my face.
