NIV 24 to be gracious to him and say, 'Spare him from going down to the pit; I have found a ransom for him'-- WBT 25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he will return to the days of his youth: NIV 25 then his flesh is renewed like a child's; it is restored as in the days of his youth. WBT 26 He shall pray to God, and he will be favorable to him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render to man his righteousness. NIV 26 He prays to God and finds favor with him, he sees God's face and shouts for joy; he is restored by God to his righteous state. WBT 27 He looketh upon men, and [if any] shall say, I have sinned, and perverted [that which was] right, and it profited me not; NIV 27 Then he comes to men and says, 'I sinned, and perverted what was right, but I did not get what I deserved. WBT 28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light. NIV 28 He redeemed my soul from going down to the pit, and I will live to enjoy the light.'
