1 Job again took up his discourse and said: 1 Job continued his discourse:
2 "O that I were as in the months of old, as in the days when God watched over me; 2 "How I long for the months gone by, for the days when God watched over me,
3 when his lamp shone over my head, and by his light I walked through darkness; 3 when his lamp shone upon my head and by his light I walked through darkness!
4 when I was in my prime, when the friendship of God was upon my tent; 4 Oh, for the days when I was in my prime, when God's intimate friendship blessed my house,
5 when the Almighty was still with me, when my children were around me; 5 when the Almighty was still with me and my children were around me,
6 when my steps were washed with milk, and the rock poured out for me streams of oil! 6 when my path was drenched with cream and the rock poured out for me streams of olive oil.
