Job Speaks of His Former Blessings

29Job continued speaking.H347H3254H5375H4912H559 2"I long for the years gone by when God took care of me,H5414H3391H6924H3117H433H8104 3when he lit up the way before me and I walked safely through the darkness.H5216H1984H7218H216H3212H2822 4When I was in my prime, God's friendship was felt in my home.H3117H2779H5475H433H168 5The Almighty was still with me, and my children were around me.H7706H5288H5439 6My cows produced milk in abundance, and my groves poured out streams of olive oil.H7364H1978H2529H6697H6694H6388H8081 7"Those were the days when I went to the city gate and took my place among the honored leaders.H3318H8179H7176H3559H4186H7339 8The young stepped aside when they saw me, and even the aged rose in respect at my coming.H5288H7200H2244H3453H6965H5975 9The princes stood in silence and put their hands over their mouths.H8269H6113H4405H7760H3709H6310 10The highest officials of the city stood quietly, holding their tongues in respect.H5057H2244H6963H3956H1692H2441 11"All who heard me praised me. All who saw me spoke well of me.H241H8085H833H5869H7200H5749 12For I assisted the poor in their need and the orphans who required help.H4422H6041H7768H3490H5826 13I helped those without hope, and they blessed me. And I caused the widows' hearts to sing for joy.H1293H6H935H490H3820H7442 14Everything I did was honest. Righteousness covered me like a robe, and I wore justice like a turban.H3847H6664H3847H4941H4598H6797 15I served as eyes for the blind and feet for the lame.H5869H5787H7272H6455 16I was a father to the poor and assisted strangers who needed help.H1H34H7379H3045H2713 17I broke the jaws of godless oppressors and plucked their victims from their teeth.H7665H4973H5767H7993H2964H8127 18"I thought, 'Surely I will die surrounded by my family after a long, good life.H559H1478H7064H7235H3117H2344 19For I am like a tree whose roots reach the water, whose branches are refreshed with the dew.H8328H6605H4325H2919H3885H7105 20New honors are constantly bestowed on me, and my strength is continually renewed.'H3519H2319H5978H7198H2498H3027 21"Everyone listened to my advice. They were silent as they waited for me to speak.H8085H3176H1826H3926H6098 22And after I spoke, they had nothing to add, for my counsel satisfied them.H310H1697H8138H4405H5197 23They longed for me to speak as people long for rain. They drank my words like a refreshing spring rain.H3176H4306H6473H6310H4456 24When they were discouraged, I smiled at them. My look of approval was precious to them.H7832H539H216H6440H5307 25Like a chief, I told them what to do. I lived like a king among his troops and comforted those who mourned.H977H1870H3427H7218H7931H4428H1416H5162H57
