Job 8:17; Job 13:27; Job 14:8; Job 18:16; Job 19:28; Job 29:19; Job 30:4
His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones.
Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.
Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;
His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.
But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?
My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.
Who cut up mallows by the bushes, and juniper roots for their meat.
