- As I have been in days of my maturity, And the counsel of God upon my tent.
- When yet the Mighty One [is] with me. Round about me -- my young ones,
- When washing my goings with butter, And the firm rock [is] with me rivulets of oil.

- After my word they change not, And on them doth my speech drop,
- And they wait as [for] rain for me, And their mouth they have opened wide [As] for the latter rain.
- I laugh unto them -- they give no credence, And the light of my face cause not to fall.
- I choose their way, and sit head, And I dwell as a king in a troop, When mourners he doth comfort.
- And now, laughed at me, Have the younger in days than I, Whose fathers I have loathed to set With the dogs of my flock.
- Also -- the power of their hands, why [is it] to me? On them hath old age perished.
- With want and with famine gloomy, Those fleeing to a dry place, Formerly a desolation and waste,
- Those cropping mallows near a shrub, And broom-roots [is] their food.

- In a frightful place of valleys to dwell, Holes of earth and clefts.
