Job 16:4 Parallel
CommentaryJob 16:4 Parallel Commentaries
The people passing by shouted abuse, shaking their heads in mockery.
But if it were me, I would encourage you. I would try to take away your grief.
Everyone who sees me mocks me. They sneer and shake their heads, saying,
I am a joke to people everywhere; when they see me, they shake their heads in scorn.
the LORD has spoken this word against him: "The virgin daughter of Zion despises you and laughs at you. The daughter of Jerusalem shakes her head in derision as you flee.
Did you not ridicule the people of Israel? Were they caught in the company of thieves that you should despise them as you do?
This is the boisterous city, once so secure. "I am the greatest!" it boasted. "No other city can compare with me!" But now, look how it has become an utter ruin, a haven for wild animals. Everyone passing by will laugh in derision and shake a defiant fist.
