World English Bible
They abhor me, they stand aloof from me, and don't hesitate to spit in my face.

Job 30:10 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
They abhor me - Hebrew, They regard me as abominable.
They flee far from me - Even such an impious and low born race now will have nothing to do with me. They would consider it no honor to be associated with me, but keep as far from me as possible.
And spare not to spit in my face - Margin, "withhold not spittle from." Noyes renders this "Before my face;" and so Luther Wemyss, Umbreit, and Prof. Lee. The Hebrew may mean either to spit in the face, or to spit "in the presence" of anyone.

Of nothing do foreigners complain of us more, or with more justice; and much as we boast of our intelligence and refinement, we should gain much if in this respect we would sit down at the feet of a Bedouin Arab, and incorporate his views into our maxims of politeness.

Therefore Abraham's bosom is …

Messiah Unpitied, and Without a Comforter
Then they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others slapped Him,
But the LORD said to Moses, "If her father had but spit in her face, would she not bear her shame for seven days? Let her be shut up for seven days outside the camp, and afterward she may be received again."
then his brother's wife shall come to him in the sight of the elders, and pull his sandal off his foot and spit in his face; and she shall declare, 'Thus it is done to the man who does not build up his brother's house.'
"But He has made me a byword of the people, And I am one at whom men spit.
You have removed my acquaintances far from me; You have made me an object of loathing to them; I am shut up and cannot go out.
I gave My back to those who strike Me, And My cheeks to those who pluck out the beard; I did not cover My face from humiliation and spitting.
All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.
