If you are ·good [pure] and ·honest [virtuous; 1:1, 8; 2:3], he will ·stand up [L immediately rouse himself] for you and ·bring you back [restore you] ·where you belong [to your right/righteous pasture/place/home].
Bildad from Shuhah was next to speak: “How can you keep on talking like this? You’re talking nonsense, and noisy nonsense at that. Does God mess up? Does God Almighty ever get things backward? It’s plain that your children sinned against him— otherwise, why would God have punished them? Here’s what you must do—and don’t put it off any longer: Get down on your knees before God Almighty.

Even though you’re not much right now, you’ll end up better than ever.
if thou goest clean and rightful, anon he shall wake fully to thee, and shall make peaceable the dwelling place of thy rightfulness; (if thou goest clean and upright, at once he shall watch over thee, and he shall make the dwelling place of thy righteousness prosperous;)
