29:1 Moreover Job [H347] continued [H3254] [H5375] his parable [H4912] , and said [H559] ,(continued: Heb. added to take up)
29:2 Oh that [H5414] I were as [in] months [H3391] past [H6924] , as [in] the days [H3117] [when] God [H433] preserved [H8104] me;
29:3 When his candle [H5216] shined [H1984] upon my head [H7218] , [and when] by his light [H216] I walked [H3212] [through] darkness [H2822] ;(candle: or, lamp)
29:4 As I was in the days [H3117] of my youth [H2779] , when the secret [H5475] of God [H433] [was] upon my tabernacle [H168] ;
29:5 When the Almighty [H7706] [was] yet with me, [when] my children [H5288] [were] about [H5439] me;
29:6 When I washed [H7364] my steps [H1978] with butter [H2529] , and the rock [H6697] poured me out [H6694] rivers [H6388] of oil [H8081] ;(me: Heb. with me)
29:7 When I went out [H3318] to the gate [H8179] through the city [H7176] , [when] I prepared [H3559] my seat [H4186] in the street [H7339] !
29:8 The young men [H5288] saw [H7200] me, and hid [H2244] themselves: and the aged [H3453] arose [H6965] , [and] stood up [H5975] .
29:9 The princes [H8269] refrained [H6113] talking [H4405] , and laid [H7760] [their] hand [H3709] on their mouth [H6310] .
29:10 The nobles [H5057] held [H2244] their peace [H6963] , and their tongue [H3956] cleaved [H1692] to the roof of their mouth [H2441] .(The nobles: Heb. The voice of the nobles was hid)
29:11 When the ear [H241] heard [H8085] [me], then it blessed [H833] me; and when the eye [H5869] saw [H7200] [me], it gave witness [H5749] to me:
29:12 Because I delivered [H4422] the poor [H6041] that cried [H7768] , and the fatherless [H3490] , and [him that had] none to help [H5826] him.
29:13 The blessing [H1293] of him that was ready to perish [H6] came [H935] upon me: and I caused the widow's [H490] heart [H3820] to sing for joy [H7442] .
29:14 I put [H3847] on righteousness [H6664] , and it clothed [H3847] me: my judgment [H4941] [was] as a robe [H4598] and a diadem [H6797] .
29:15 I was eyes [H5869] to the blind [H5787] , and feet [H7272] [was] I to the lame [H6455] .
29:16 I [was] a father [H1] to the poor [H34] : and the cause [H7379] [which] I knew [H3045] not I searched out [H2713] .
29:17 And I brake [H7665] the jaws [H4973] of the wicked [H5767] , and plucked [H7993] the spoil [H2964] out of his teeth [H8127] .(the jaws: Heb. the jawteeth, or, the grinders)(plucked: Heb. cast)
29:18 Then I said [H559] , I shall die [H1478] in my nest [H7064] , and I shall multiply [H7235] [my] days [H3117] as the sand [H2344] .
29:19 My root [H8328] [was] spread out [H6605] by the waters [H4325] , and the dew [H2919] lay all night [H3885] upon my branch [H7105] .(spread: Heb. opened)
29:20 My glory [H3519] [was] fresh [H2319] in me [H5978] , and my bow [H7198] was renewed [H2498] in my hand [H3027] .(fresh: Heb. new)(renewed: Heb. changed)
29:21 Unto me [men] gave ear [H8085] , and waited [H3176] , and kept silence [H1826] at [H3926] my counsel [H6098] .
29:22 After [H310] my words [H1697] they spake not again [H8138] ; and my speech [H4405] dropped [H5197] upon them.
29:23 And they waited [H3176] for me as for the rain [H4306] ; and they opened [H6473] their mouth [H6310] wide [as] for the latter rain [H4456] .
29:24 [If] I laughed [H7832] on them, they believed [H539] [it] not; and the light [H216] of my countenance [H6440] they cast not down [H5307] .
29:25 I chose [H977] out their way [H1870] , and sat [H3427] chief [H7218] , and dwelt [H7931] as a king [H4428] in the army [H1416] , as one [that] comforteth [H5162] the mourners [H57] .
