Job , CHAPTER 29

1

Job took up his theme again and said:

2

Oh, that I were as in the months past, as in the days when God watched over me:

3

While he kept his lamp shining above my head, and by his light I walked through darkness;

4

As I was in my flourishing days, when God sheltered my tent;

5

When the Almighty was still with me, and my children were round about me;

6

When my footsteps were bathed in cream, and the rock flowed with streams of oil.

7

Whenever I went out to the gate of the city and took my seat in the square,

8

The young men saw me and withdrew, and the elders rose up and stood;

9

Officials refrained from speaking and covered their mouths with their hands;

10

The voice of the princes was silenced, and their tongues stuck to the roofs of their mouths.

11

The ear that heard blessed me; the eye that saw acclaimed me.

12

For I rescued the poor who cried out for help, the orphans, and the unassisted;

13

The blessing of those in extremity came upon me, and the heart of the widow I made joyful.

14

I wore my righteousness like a garment; justice was my robe and my turban.

15

I was eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame was I.

16

I was a father to the poor; the complaint of the stranger I pursued,

17

And I broke the jaws of the wicked man; from his teeth I forced the prey.

18

I said: “In my own nest I shall grow old; I shall multiply years like the phoenix.

19

My root is spread out to the waters; the dew rests by night on my branches.

20

My glory is fresh within me, and my bow is renewed in my hand!”

21

For me they listened and waited; they were silent for my counsel.

22

Once I spoke, they said no more, but received my pronouncement drop by drop.

23

They waited for me as for the rain; they drank in my words like the spring rains.

24

When I smiled on them they could not believe it; they would not let the light of my face be dimmed.

25

I decided their course and sat at their head, I lived like a king among the troops, like one who comforts mourners.
