though you were a powerful man, owning land-- an honored man, living on it.
King James Bible
But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; and the honourable man dwelt in it.
American Standard Version
But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; And the honorable man, he dwelt in it.
Young's Literal Translation
As to the man of arm -- he hath the earth, And the accepted of face -- he dwelleth in it.
Job 22:8 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But as for the mighty man, he had the earth - איש זרוע ish zeroa, the man of arm. Finger, hand, and arm, are all emblems of strength and power. The man of arm is not only the strong man, but the man of power and influence, the man of rapine and plunder.
The honorable man - Literally, the man whose face is accepted, the respectable man, the man of wealth. Thou wert an enemy to the poor and needy, but thou didst favor and flatter the rich and great.
