“And now I have become [the subject of] their taunting;
Yes, I am a [a]byword and a laughingstock to them.
“They hate me, they stand aloof from me,
And do not refrain from spitting in my face.
“For God has loosed His bowstring [attacking me] and [He has] afflicted and humbled me;
They have cast off the bridle [of restraint] before me.
- Job 30:9 I.e. the object of cruel jokes.
