Job 30:26-3126But a when I hoped for good, evil came,
and when I waited for light b darkness came.
27My inward parts are in turmoil and never still;
days of affliction c come to meet me.
28I d go about darkened, but not by the sun;
I stand up in e the assembly and cry for help.
29I am a brother of f jackals
and a companion of g ostriches.
30My h skin turns black and falls from me,
and my i bones burn with heat.
31My j lyre is k turned to mourning,
and my l pipe to the voice of those who weep.
