Job 30:3-7 New King James Version (NKJV)

They are gaunt from want and famine,
Fleeing late to the wilderness, desolate and waste,
Who pluck [a]mallow by the bushes,
And broom tree roots for their food.
They were driven out from among men,
They shouted at them as at a thief.
They had to live in the clefts of the [b]valleys,
In [c]caves of the earth and the rocks.
Among the bushes they brayed,
Under the nettles they nestled.

Job 30:3-7 New International Version (NIV)

Haggard from want and hunger,
    they roamed[a] the parched land
    in desolate wastelands at night.
In the brush they gathered salt herbs,
    and their food[b] was the root of the broom bush.
They were banished from human society,
    shouted at as if they were thieves.
They were forced to live in the dry stream beds,
    among the rocks and in holes in the ground.
They brayed among the bushes
    and huddled in the undergrowth.
