Job’s Final Claim of Innocence

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:1 -

Job continued his discourse, saying:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:2 -

If only I could be as in months gone by,

in the days when God watched over me,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:3 -

when his lamp shone above my head,

and I walked through darkness by his light!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:4 -

I would be as I was in the days of my youth

when God’s friendship rested on my tent,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:5 -

when the Almighty was still with me

and my children were around me,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:6 -

when my feet were bathed in curds

and the rock poured out streams of oil for me!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:7 -

When I went out to the city gate

and took my seat in the town square,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:8 -

the young men saw me and withdrew,

while older men stood to their feet.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:9 -

City officials stopped talking

and covered their mouths with their hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:10 -

The noblemen’s voices were hushed,

and their tongues stuck to the roof of their mouths.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:11 -

When they heard me, they blessed me,

and when they saw me, they spoke well of me.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:12 -

For I rescued the poor who cried out for help,

and the fatherless child who had no one to support him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:13 -

The dying blessed me,

and I made the widow’s heart rejoice.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:14 -

I clothed myself in righteousness,

and it enveloped me;

my just decisions were like a robe and a turban.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:15 -

I was eyes to the blind

and feet to the lame.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:16 -

I was a father to the needy,

and I examined the case of the stranger.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:17 -

I shattered the fangs of the unjust

and snatched the prey from his teeth.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:18 -

So I thought, “I will die in my own nest

and multiply my days as the sand.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:19 -

“My roots will have access to water,

and the dew will rest on my branches all night.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:20 -

“My whole being will be refreshed within me,

and my bow will be renewed in my hand.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:21 -

Men listened to me with expectation,

waiting silently for my advice.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:22 -

After a word from me they did not speak again;

my speech settled on them like dew.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:23 -

They waited for me as for the rain

and opened their mouths as for spring showers.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:24 -

If I smiled at them, they couldn’t believe it;

they were thrilled at[fn] the light of my countenance.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 29:25 -

I directed their course and presided as chief.

I lived as a king among his troops,

like one who comforts those who mourn.

Or as the phoenix
Lit they did not cast down
