King James Bible : Job : Chapter 29 King James Bible : Job : Chapter 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 judgement 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 brake 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 hand.
29:21
Unto me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.
29:22
After my words they spake 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.
