29:3 When his a candle shined upon my head, [and when] by his light I walked [through] b darkness;

    (a) When I felt his favour.
    (b) I was free from affliction.
29:4 As I was in the days of my youth, when the c secret of God [was] upon my tabernacle;
    (c) That is, seemed by evident tokens to be more present with me.
29:6 When I washed my steps d with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;
    (d) By these comparisons he declares the great prosperity that he was in, so that he had no opportunity to be such a sinner as they accused him.
29:8 The young men saw me, and e hid themselves: and the aged arose, [and] stood up.
    (e) Being ashamed of their lightness and afraid of my gravity.
29:9 The princes refrained talking, and laid [their] hand on their f mouth.
    (f) Acknowledging my wisdom.
29:11 When the g ear heard [me], then it blessed me; and when the eye saw [me], it gave witness to me:
    (g) All that heard me, praised me.

29:12 Because I delivered the i poor that cried, and the fatherless, and [him that had] none to help him.

    (i) Because his adversaries did so much charge him with wickedness, he is compelled to render account of his life.
29:13 k The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
    (k) That is, I helped him who was in distress, and so he had cause to praise me.
29:14 I put on l righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment [was] as a robe and a diadem.
    (l) I delighted to do justice, as others did to wear costly apparel.
29:18 Then I said, I shall die in my m nest, and I shall multiply [my] days as the sand.
    (m) That is, at home in my bed without all trouble and unquietness.
29:19 My root [was] n spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.
    (n) My happiness increases.
29:22 After my words they spake not again; and my speech o dropped upon them.
    (o) That is, was pleasant to them.
29:23 And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide p [as] for the latter rain.
    (p) As the dry ground thirsts for the rain.
29:24 [If] I q laughed on them, they believed [it] not; and the light of my countenance they r cast not down.
    (q) That is, they thought it not to be a rest, or they did not think that I would condescend to them.
    (r) They were afraid to offend me and cause me to be angry.
29:25 I chose out s their way, and sat chief, and dwelt as a king in the army, as one [that] comforteth the mourners.
    (s) I had them at commandment.
