29 Job continued his discourse, saying:
in the days when God watched over me,
and I walked through darkness by his light!k
when God’s friendshipl rested on my tent,
and my children were around me,
and the rockm poured out streams of oil for me!
7 When I went out to the city gaten
and took my seat in the town square,
while older men stood to their feet.
and covered their mouths with their hands.a
and their tongues stuck to the roof of their mouths.b
and when they saw me, they spoke well of me.A
and the fatherless child who had no one to support him.c
and I made the widow’s heart rejoice.
14 I clothed myself in righteousness,d
and it enveloped me;
my just decisions were like a robe and a turban.
and feet to the lame.e
and I examined the case of the stranger.
17 I shattered the fangs of the unjustf
and snatched the prey from his teeth.
and multiply my days as the sand.B
19 My roots will have access to water,g
and the dew will rest on my branches all night.
and my bow will be renewed in my hand.”h
waiting silently for my advice.
my speech settled on them like dew.i
and opened their mouths as for spring showers.
they were thrilled atC the light of my countenance.
I lived as a king among his troops,
like one who comforts those who mourn.
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
