Geneva Study Bible
   1: But now they that are younger than I have me in derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to set with the dogs of my flock.
   2: Yea, whereto [should] the strength of their hands [profit] me, [men] in whom vigour hath perished?
   3: Withered up through want and hunger, they flee into waste places long since desolate and desert:
   4: They gather the salt-wort among the bushes, and the roots of the broom for their food.
   5: They are driven forth from among [men] -- they cry after them as after a thief --
   6: To dwell in gloomy gorges, in caves of the earth and the rocks:
   7: They bray among the bushes; under the brambles they are gathered together:
   8: Sons of fools, and sons of nameless sires, they are driven out of the land.
   9: And now I am their song, yea, I am their byword.
   10: They abhor me, they stand aloof from me, yea, they spare not to spit in my face.
   11: For he hath loosed my cord and afflicted me; so they cast off the bridle before me.
   12: At [my] right hand rise the young brood; they push away my feet, and raise up against me their pernicious ways;
   13: They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, without any to help them;
   14: They come in as through a wide breach: amid the confusion they roll themselves onward.
   15: Terrors are turned against me; they pursue mine honour as the wind; and my welfare is passed away like a cloud.
   16: And now my soul is poured out in me; days of affliction have taken hold upon me.
   17: The night pierceth through my bones [and detacheth them] from me, and my gnawing pains take no rest:
   18: By their great force they have become my raiment; they bind me about as the collar of my coat.
   19: He hath cast me into the mire, and I have become like dust and ashes.
   20: I cry unto thee, and thou answerest me not; I stand up, and thou lookest at me.
   21: Thou art changed to a cruel one to me; with the strength of thy hand thou pursuest me.
   22: Thou liftest me up to the wind; thou causest me to be borne away, and dissolvest my substance.
   23: For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, and into the house of assemblage for all living.
   24: Indeed, no prayer [availeth] when he stretcheth out [his] hand: though they cry when he destroyeth.
   25: Did not I weep for him whose days were hard? was not my soul grieved for the needy?
   26: For I expected good, and there came evil; and I waited for light, but there came darkness.
   27: My bowels well up, and rest not; days of affliction have confronted me.
   28: I go about blackened, but not by the sun; I stand up, I cry in the congregation.
   29: I am become a brother to jackals, and a companion of ostriches.
   30: My skin is become black [and falleth] off me, and my bones are parched with heat.
   31: My harp also is [turned] to mourning, and my pipe into the voice of weepers.
