7 “If I cry out concerning 3wrong, I am not heard.
If I cry aloud, there is no justice.
And He has set darkness in my paths.
9 dHe has stripped me of my glory,
And taken the crown from my head.
And I am gone;
My ehope He has uprooted like a tree.
And fHe counts me as one of His enemies.
And build up their road against me;
They encamp all around my tent.
13 “He ghas removed my brothers far from me,
And my acquaintances are completely estranged from me.
And my close friends have forgotten me.
Count me as a stranger;
I am an alien in their sight.
I beg him with my mouth.
And I am 5repulsive to the children of my own body.
18 Even hyoung children despise me;
I arise, and they speak against me.
19 iAll my close friends abhor me,
And those whom I love have turned against me.
20 jMy bone clings to my skin and to my flesh,
And I have escaped by the skin of my teeth.
For the hand of God has struck me!
walled off my way
