Job 29:8–17

8 The young men saw me and hid,

And the aged arose and stood;

9 The princes refrained from talking,

And gput their hand on their mouth;

10 The voice of nobles was hushed,

And their htongue stuck to the roof of their mouth.

11 When the ear heard, then it blessed me,

And when the eye saw, then it approved me;

12 Because iI delivered the poor who cried out,

The fatherless and the one who had no helper.

13 The blessing of a perishing man came upon me,

And I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.

14 jI put on righteousness, and it clothed me;

My justice was like a robe and a turban.

15 I was keyes to the blind,

And I was feet to the lame.

16 I was a father to the poor,

And lI searched out the case that I did not know.

17 I broke mthe fangs of the wicked,

And plucked the victim from his teeth.
