23 I know where this ends.
You will send me off to death
and usher me to that meetinghouse where all the living one day go.
24 And yet does not a person trapped in ruins stretch out his hand,
and in this disaster does he not cry out for help?[a]
25 Did I not grieve for the hard days of another
or weep for the pains of the poor?
- 30:24 Meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain.
