Job 12:3-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

But I have intelligence as well as you;
    I do not fall short of you;
    for who does not know such things as these?
I have become the sport of my neighbors:[a]
    “The one whom God answers when he calls upon him,
    The just, the perfect man,” is a laughingstock;
The undisturbed esteem my downfall a disgrace
    such as awaits unsteady feet;


  1. 12:4–5 The Hebrew is somewhat obscure, but the general sense is that the wicked mock the pious when the latter appear to be abandoned by God; cf. Ps 22:7–9; Mt 27:39–43.
