Job - Chapter 29
1 And Job continued his solemn discourse. He said:
2 Will no one bring back to me the months that have gone, and the days when God was my guardian,
4 Shall I ever see my days of harvest again when God protected my tent;
5 when Shaddai still dwelt with me, and my children were around me;
21 They waited anxiously to hear me, and listened in silence to what I had to say.
24 If I smiled at them, it was too good to be true, they watched my face for the least sign of favour.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
