and assign your nuggets to the dust, your gold of Ophir to the rocks in the ravines,
King James Bible
Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.
Darby Bible Translation
And put the precious ore with the dust, and [the gold of] Ophir among the stones of the torrents,
World English Bible
Lay your treasure in the dust, the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.
Young's Literal Translation
So as to set on the dust a defence, And on a rock of the valleys a covering.
Job 22:24 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust - The original is not fairly rendered in this translation, ושית על עפר בצר veshith al aphar batser, which Montanus renders: Et pone super pulverem munitionem, "And fix a tower upon the dust;" ובצור נחלים אופיר ubetsur nechalim Ophir, et in petra torrentes Ophir, "and in the rock, the torrents of Ophir." The Vulgate is widely different: Dabit pro terra silicem, et pro silice torrentes aureos, "He will give thee flint for earth: and torrents of gold for flint;" which Calmet thus paraphrases: "Instead of brick thou shalt build with solid stone; and for ornaments, instead of stone as formerly, thou shalt have massive gold!" All the versions are different. Mr. Good translates: "Then count thou treasure as dust: then shall he make fountains to gush forth amidst the rocks."
Coverdale is different from all: We shal give the an harvest which, in plenty and abundance, shal exceade the dust of the earthe, and the golde of Ophir like ryver stones.

This is the true God, and eternal …
