Job 29

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.
