Context: Job continues speaking for today's reading. In chapter 29, Job recounts his former life, remembering God's rich blessing on his life (1-6), the respect he used to command (7-10), how he used to strive for justice (8-17), his hope for a long and blessed life (18-20), and how he was the most respected elder (21-25). Job, in chapter 30 laments those who now mock him (1-8), what they mock him about (9-15), Job's accusation against God (16-23), and his self lament (24-31).
