[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]

JOB 29:1 And Job again took up his parable, and said,
JOB 29:2 Oh that I were as in the months of old, As in the days when God watched over me;
JOB 29:3 When his lamp shined upon my head, And by his light I walked through darkness;
JOB 29:4 As I was in the ripeness of my days, When the friendship of God was upon my tent;
JOB 29:5 When the Almighty was yet with me, And my children were about me;
JOB 29:6 When my steps were washed with butter, And the rock poured me out streams of oil!
JOB 29:7 When I went forth to the gate unto the city, When I prepared my seat in the street,
JOB 29:8 The young men saw me and hid themselves, And the aged rose up and stood;
JOB 29:9 The princes refrained from talking, And laid their hand on their mouth;
JOB 29:10 The voice of the nobles was hushed, And their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.
JOB 29:11 For when the ear heard `me', then it blessed me; And when the eye saw `me', it gave witness unto me:
JOB 29:12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, The fatherless also, that had none to help him.
JOB 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.
JOB 29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: My justice was as a robe and a diadem.
JOB 29:15 I was eyes to the blind, And feet was I to the lame.
JOB 29:16 I was a father to the needy: And the cause of him that I knew not I searched out.
JOB 29:17 And I brake the jaws of the unrighteous, And plucked the prey out of his teeth.
JOB 29:18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, And I shall multiply my days as the sand:
JOB 29:19 My root is spread out to the waters, And the dew lieth all night upon my branch;
JOB 29:20 My glory is fresh in me, And my bow is renewed in my hand.
JOB 29:21 Unto me men gave ear, and waited, And kept silence for my counsel.
JOB 29:22 After my words they spake not again; And my speech distilled upon them.
JOB 29:23 And they waited for me as for the rain; And they opened their mouth wide `as' for the latter rain.
JOB 29:24 I smiled on them, when they had no confidence; And the light of my countenance they cast not down.
JOB 29:25 I chose out their way, and sat `as' chief, And dwelt as a king in the army, As one that comforteth the mourners.
