Job 29:16-18 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
16 I was a father to the poor:
and the cause which I knew not I searched out.
17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked,
and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.
18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest,
and I shall multiply my days as the sand.
Job 29:16-18 New International Version (NIV)
16 I was a father to the needy;
I took up the case of the stranger.
17 I broke the fangs of the wicked
and snatched the victims from their teeth.
18 “I thought, ‘I will die in my own house,
my days as numerous as the grains of sand.
