New International Reader's Version
10 They hate me. They stay away from me.
They even dare to spit in my face.
11 God has made my body weak.
It’s like a tent that has fallen down.
So those children do what they want to in front of me.
12 Many people attack me on my right side.
They lay traps for my feet.
They come at me from every direction.
New International Version
10 They detest me(A) and keep their distance;
they do not hesitate to spit in my face.(B)
11 Now that God has unstrung my bow(C) and afflicted me,(D)
they throw off restraint(E) in my presence.
12 On my right(F) the tribe[a] attacks;
they lay snares(G) for my feet,(H)
they build their siege ramps against me.(I)
