Everyone listened to Job (Job 29:21-29:25)

“They listened to me.

I waited.

I kept silence for my counsel.

After I spoke

They did not speak again.

My word dropped upon them like dew.

They waited for me as for the rain.

They opened their mouths as for the spring rain.

I smiled on them when they had no confidence.

The light of my countenance

They did not extinguish.

I chose their way.

I sat as chief.

I lived like a king among his troops.

I lived like the one who comforts mourners.”

Job was like the most interesting man in the world. He would listen. However, after he had spoken, they would not speak again because his words were so interesting. His words dropped down like dew on others. They waited for him like they waited for the rain. When he smiled, they had confidence. His face was like an inextinguishable light. He told people what to do, like a chief. He lived like a king who had many troops. He was like the chief comforter in charge. Thus some 2,500 years ago, he was the most interesting man in the world.
