Job 12:3-5 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

But I too have a brain, as much as you,
In no way am I inferior to you.
Besides, who doesn’t know things like these?

“Anyone who calls on God,
and he answers him,
becomes a laughingstock to his friends —
they make fun of an innocent, blameless man.
Those at ease have contempt for misfortune,
for the blow that strikes somebody already staggering.

Job 12:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

But I have a mind as well as you;
    I am not inferior to you.
    Who does not know all these things?

“I have become a laughingstock to my friends,
    though I called on God and he answered
    a mere laughingstock, though righteous and blameless!
Those who are at ease have contempt for misfortune
    as the fate of those whose feet are slipping.
