Job 29

  1 H347 Moreover Job H3254 continued H4912 his parable, H559 and said,
  2 H3391 Oh that I were as in months H6924 past, H3117 as in the days H433 when God H8104 preserved me;
  3 H5216 When his candle H1984 shined H7218 on my head, H216 and when by his light H3212 I walked H2822 through darkness;
  4 H3117 As I was in the days H2779 of my youth, H5475 when the secret H433 of God H168 was on my tabernacle;
  5 H5750 When H7706 the Almighty H5750 was yet H5288 with me, when my children H5439 were about me;
  6 H7364 When I washed H1978 my steps H2529 with butter, H6697 and the rock H6694 poured H6388 me out rivers H8081 of oil;
  7 H3318 When I went H8179 out to the gate H5921 through H7176 the city, H3559 when I prepared H4186 my seat H7339 in the street!
  8 H5288 The young H7200 men saw H2244 me, and hid H2205 themselves: and the aged H6965 arose, H5975 and stood up.
  9 H8269 The princes H6113 refrained H4405 talking, H7760 and laid H3709 their hand H6310 on their mouth.
  10 H5057 The nobles H2244 held H6963 their peace, H3956 and their tongue H1692 stuck H2441 to the roof H2441 of their mouth.
  11 H3588 When H241 the ear H8085 heard H833 me, then it blessed H5869 me; and when the eye H7200 saw H5749 me, it gave witness to me:
  12 H3588 Because H4422 I delivered H6041 the poor H7768 that cried, H3490 and the fatherless, H3808 and him that had none H5826 to help him.
  13 H1293 The blessing H6 of him that was ready to perish H935 came H490 on me: and I caused the widow’s H3820 heart H7442 to sing H7442 for joy.
  14 H3847 I put H6664 on righteousness, H3847 and it clothed H4941 me: my judgment H4598 was as a robe H6797 and a diadem.
  15 H5869 I was eyes H5787 to the blind, H7272 and feet H6455 was I to the lame.
  16 H1 I was a father H34 to the poor: H7379 and the cause H3045 which I knew H2713 not I searched out.
  17 H7665 And I broke H4973 the jaws H5767 of the wicked, H7993 and plucked H2964 the spoil H8127 out of his teeth.
  18 H559 Then I said, H1478 I shall die H7064 in my nest, H7235 and I shall multiply H3117 my days H2344 as the sand.
  19 H8328 My root H6605 was spread H4325 out by the waters, H2919 and the dew H3885 lay H3885 all H7105 night on my branch.
  20 H3519 My glory H2319 was fresh H7198 in me, and my bow H2498 was renewed H3027 in my hand.
  21 H8085 To me men gave ear, H3176 and waited, H1826 and kept silence H3926 at H6098 my counsel.
  22 H310 After H1697 my words H8138 they spoke not again; H4405 and my speech H5197 dropped on them.
  23 H3176 And they waited H4306 for me as for the rain; H6473 and they opened H6310 their mouth H4456 wide as for the latter H4456 rain.
  24 H7832 If I laughed H413 on H539 them, they believed H216 it not; and the light H6440 of my countenance H5307 they cast H5307 not down.
  25 H977 I chose H1870 out their way, H3427 and sat H7218 chief, H7931 and dwelled H4428 as a king H1416 in the army, H5162 as one that comforts H57 the mourners.
