Job 30:1 (ESV)

1 “But now they laugh at me, men who are younger than I, whose fathers I would have disdained to set with the dogs of my flock.

From having described his happy past, Job goes on to describe his current misery (But now). He reverses the order of Job 29:1–25, this time starting with people’s attitude toward him and ending with God’s treatment of him.

From being the most honoured man in society, he is now mocked by the lowest members of society: the sons of men whom Job would not even have trusted with his dogs!
