3 But I have understanding as well as you, and am not inferior unto you: yea, who knoweth not such things?
4 I am [a]as one mocked of his neighbor, who calleth upon God, and he [b]heareth him: the just and the upright is laughed to scorn.
5 [c]He that is ready to fall, is as a lamp despised in the opinion of the rich.
Job 12:4He reproveth these his friends of two faults: the one that they thought they had better knowledge than indeed they had: and the other, that instead of true consolation, they did deride and despise their friend in his adversity.
Job 12:4The which neighbor being a mocker and a wicked man, thinketh that no man is in God’s favor but he, because he hath all things that he desireth.
Job 12:5As the rich esteem not a light, or torch that goeth out, so is he despised that falleth from prosperity to adversity.
