The topaz of Cush cannot compare with it; it cannot be bought with pure gold.
King James Bible
The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
American Standard Version
The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, Neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
Young's Literal Translation
Not equal it doth the topaz of Cush, With pure gold it is not valued.
Job 28:19 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The topaz of Ethiopia - The country called Cush, which we call Ethiopia, is supposed to be that which extends from the eastern coast of the Red Sea, and stretches towards Lower Egypt. Diodorus Siculus says that the topaz was found in great abundance, as his description intimates, in an island in the Red Sea called Ophiodes, or the isle of serpents, Hist. lib. iii., p. 121. His account is curious, but I greatly doubt its correctness; it seems too much in the form of a legend: yet the reader may consult the place. See also Clarke on Job 28:16 (note).
