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 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,

29:2 Oh that I were as [in] months past, as [in] the days [when] God preserved me;

29:3 When his candle shined upon my head, [and when] by his light I walked [through] darkness;

29:4 As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God [was] upon my tabernacle;

29:5 When the Almighty [was] yet with me, [when] my children [were] about me;

29:6 When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;

29:7 When I went out to the gate through the city, [when] I prepared my seat in the street!

29:8 The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose, [and] stood up.

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

29:10 The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.

29:11 When the ear heard [me], then it blessed me; and when the eye saw [me], it gave witness to me:

29:12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and [him that had] none to help him.

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

29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment [was] as a robe and a diadem.

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

29:16 I [was] a father to the poor: and the cause [which] I knew not I searched out.

29:17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

29:18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply [my] days as the sand.

29:19 My root [was] spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.

29:20 My glory [was] fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

29:21 Unto me [men] gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.

29:22 After my words they spake not again; and my speech dropped upon them.

29:23 And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide [as] for the latter rain.

29:24 [If] I laughed on them, they believed [it] not; and the light of my countenance they cast not down.

29:25 I chose out their way, and sat chief, and dwelt as a king in the army, as one [that] comforteth the mourners.
