because I rescued the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless who had none to assist them.
King James Bible
Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.
American Standard Version
Because I delivered the poor that cried, The fatherless also, that had none to help him.
Young's Literal Translation
For I deliver the afflicted who is crying, And the fatherless who hath no helper.
Job 29:12 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Because I delivered the poor that cried - This appears to be intended as a refutation of the charges produced by Eliphaz, Job 22:5-10, to confute which Job appeals to facts, and to public testimony.
