11 My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds; my neighbors stay far away.

My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
My friends and companions stand aloof from my plague, and my nearest kin stand far off.
My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease. Even my own family stands at a distance.
