Job 12:3-5 Common English Bible (CEB)

I am also intelligent;
    I’m not inferior to you.
    Who isn’t like these people?[a]
I’m a joke to friends
        who called to God and he answered;
    the innocent and blameless one is a joke,
    a torch[b] of contempt to one who is idle,
    a fixed point for slipping feet.
