  1. “⌞Any⌟ ears that heard me blessed me. ⌞Any⌟ eyes that saw me spoke well of me, because I rescued the poor who called ⌞for help⌟ and the orphans who had no one to help them. I received a blessing from the dying. I made the widow’s heart sing for joy. I put on righteousness, and it was my clothing. I practiced justice, and it was my robe and my turban. I was eyes for the blind person. I was feet for the lame person. I was father to the needy. I carefully investigated cases brought by strangers. I broke the teeth of the wicked person and made him drop the prey out of his mouth.
    Job 29:11‭-‬17 GW

  2. “People listened to me eagerly, quietly waiting for my advice. After I had spoken, they wouldn’t speak again. After all, my words fell gently on them. They were as eager to hear me as they were for rain. They opened their mouths wide as if waiting for a spring shower. When I smiled at them, they could hardly believe it, but the expression on my face did not change. I decided how they should live. I sat as their leader. I lived like a king among his troops, like one who comforts mourners.
    Job 29:21‭-‬25 GW

  3. Because God has untied my cord and has made me suffer, they are no longer restrained in my presence.
    Job 30:11 GW

    Job 31:1 GW

  5. “If I have covered my disobedience like Adam and kept my sin to myself, because I dreaded the large, noisy crowd and because the contempt of the ⌞local⌟ mobs terrified me so that I kept quiet and didn’t go outside….
    Job 31:33‭-‬34 GW

  6. When I begin to lose hope, you ⌞already⌟ know what I am experiencing. ⌞My enemies⌟ have hidden a trap for me on the path where I walk.
    Psalms 142:3 GW

  7. Release my soul from prison so that I may give thanks to your name. Righteous people will surround me because you are good to me.
    Psalms 142:7 GW
