Job 29:16-18 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16 I was a father to the poor;
    the complaint of the stranger I pursued,
17 And I broke the jaws of the wicked man;
    from his teeth I forced the prey.
18 I said: “In my own nest I shall grow old;
    I shall multiply years like the phoenix.[a]


  1. 29:18 Phoenix: a legendary bird which, after several centuries of life, consumed itself in fire, then rose from its ashes in youthful freshness.
