Job 29

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

29:1 Job again took up his parable, and said,

29:2 "Oh that I were as in the months of old, as in the days when God watched over me;

29:3 when his lamp shone on my head, and by his light I walked through darkness,

29:4 as I was in the ripeness of my days, when the friendship of God was in my tent,

29:5 when the Almighty was yet with me, and my children were around me,

29:6 when my steps were washed with butter, and the rock poured out streams of oil for me,

29:7 when I went forth to the city gate, when I prepared my seat in the street.

29:8 The young men saw me and hid themselves. The aged rose up and stood.

29:9 The princes refrained from talking, and laid their hand on their mouth.

29:10 The voice of the nobles was hushed, and their tongue stuck to the roof of their mouth.

29:11 For when the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it commended me:

29:12 Because I delivered the poor who cried, and the fatherless also, who had none to help him,

29:13 the blessing of him who was ready to perish came on me, and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.

29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me. My justice was as a robe and a diadem.

29:15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame.

29:16 I was a father to the needy. The cause of him who I didn't know, I searched out.

29:17 I broke the jaws of the unrighteous, and plucked the prey out of his teeth.

29:18 Then I said, 'I shall die in my own house, I shall number my days as the sand.

29:19 My root is spread out to the waters. The dew lies all night on my branch.

29:20 My glory is fresh in me. My bow is renewed in my hand.'

29:21 "Men listened to me, waited, and kept silence for my counsel.

29:22 After my words they didn't speak again. My speech fell on them.

29:23 They waited for me as for the rain. Their mouths drank as with the spring rain.

29:24 I smiled on them when they had no confidence. They didn't reject the light of my face.

29:25 I chose out their way, and sat as chief. I lived as a king in the army, as one who comforts the mourners.
