Job continued speaking:
"I long for the years gone by when God took care of me,
when he lighted the way before me and I walked safely through the darkness.
In my early years, the friendship of God was felt in my home.
The Almighty was still with me, and my children were around me.
In those days my cows produced milk in abundance, and my olive groves poured out streams of olive oil.
