Job 29

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 broke 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
29:21 To me [men] gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my
29:22 After my words they spoke 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.
