Men listened to me and waited and kept silence for my counsel.  After I spoke, they did not speak again, and my word dropped upon them.  They waited for me as for the rain, and they opened their mouths as for the spring rain.  I smiled on them when they had no confidence, and the light of my face they did not cast down.  I chose their way and sat as chief, and I lived like a king among his troops, like one who comforts mourners.  (Job 29.21-25)
