Holman Christian Standard Bible
13 He has removed my brothers from me;
my acquaintances have abandoned me.(A)
14 My relatives stop coming by,
and my close friends have forgotten me.
15 My house guests[a] and female servants regard me as a stranger;
I am a foreigner in their sight.(B)
16 I call for my servant, but he does not answer,
even if I beg him with my own mouth.
17 My breath is offensive to my wife,
and my own family[b] finds me repulsive.
18 Even young boys scorn me.
When I stand up, they mock me.(C)
19 All of my best friends[c] despise me,(D)
and those I love have turned against me.(E)
20 My skin and my flesh cling to my bones;
I have escaped by the skin of my teeth.
