|New International Version (© 2011)|
My guests and my female servants count me a foreigner; they look on me as on a stranger.
King James Bible
They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.
American Standard Version
They that dwell in my house, and my maids, count me for a stranger; I am an alien in their sight.
Young's Literal Translation
Sojourners of my house and my maids, For a stranger reckon me: An alien I have been in their eyes.
Job 19:15 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They that dwell in mine house - In this and the following verses the disregard and contempt usually shown to men who have fallen from affluence and authority into poverty and dependence, are very forcibly described: formerly reverenced by all, now esteemed by none. Pity to those who have fallen into adversity is rarely shown; the rich have many friends, and to him who appears to be gaining worldly substance much court is paid; for many worship the rising sun, who think little of that which is gone down. Some are even reproached with that eminence which they have lost, though not culpable for the loss. A bishop, perhaps Bale, of Ossory, being obliged to leave his country and fly for his life, in the days of bloody Queen Mary, and who never regained his bishopric, was met one morning by one like those whom Job describes, who, intending to be witty at the expense of the venerable prelate, accosted him thus: "Good morrow, Bishop quondam." To which the bishop smartly replied, "Adieu, Knave semper."
