Job 29

29:1 Moreouer Iob continued his parable, and said, 29:2 O that I were as in moneths past, as in the dayes when God preserued me. 29:3 When his candle shined vpon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkenesse: 29:4 As I was in the dayes of my youth, when the secret of God was vpon my tabernacle: 29:5 When the Almightie was yet with me, when my children were about me: 29:6 When I washed my steps with butter, and the rocke powred me out riuers of oyle: 29:7 When I went out to the gate, through the citie, when I prepared my seate in the street. 29:8 The yong men saw me, and hid themselues: and the aged arose, and stood vp. 29:9 The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth. 29:10 The Nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaued to the roofe of their mouth. 29:11 When the eare heard mee, then it blessed me, and when the eye saw me, it gaue witnesse to me: 29:12 Because I deliuered the poore that cried, and the fatherlesse, and him that had none to helpe him. 29:13 The blessing of him that was readie to perish, came vpon me: and I caused the widowes heart to sing for ioy. 29:14 I put on righteousnesse, and it clothed me: my iudgement was as a robe and a diademe. 29:15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame. 29:16 I was a father to the poore: and the cause which I knewe not, I searched out. 29:17 And I brake the iawes of the wicked, and pluckt the spoile out of his teeth. 29:18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiplie my dayes as the sand. 29:19 My roote was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night vpon my branch. 29:20 My glory was fresh in mee, and my bow was renewed in my hand. 29:21 Unto me men gaue eare, and waited, and kept silence at my counsell. 29:22 After my words they spake not againe, & my speach dropped vpon them, 29:23 And they waited for me as for the raine, and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter raine. 29:24 If I laughed on them, they beleeued it not, and the light of my countenance they cast not downe. 29:25 I chose out their way, and sate chiefe, and dwelt as a king in the army, as one that comforteth the mourners.
