New International Version
He does not take his eyes off the righteous; he enthrones them with kings and exalts them forever.
King James Bible
He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted.
Darby Bible Translation
He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous, but with kings on the throne doth he even set them for ever; and they are exalted.
World English Bible
He doesn't withdraw his eyes from the righteous, but with kings on the throne, he sets them forever, and they are exalted.
Young's Literal Translation
He withdraweth not from the righteous His eyes, And from kings on the throne, And causeth them to sit for ever, and they are high,
Job 36:7 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He withdraweth not his eyes - Exactly similar to those words of David, Psalm 34:15 : "The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous."
But with kings are they on the throne - I think the words should be read thus: - "But with kings upon the throne shall he place them; and they shall be exalted for ever." The word וישיבם vaiyeshibem, he will establish or place them, should be added to the first clause, as I have done; and then the sense becomes much clearer. Instead of לנצח fo da lanetsach, forever, perhaps to victory would be a better sense: "But with kings upon the throne will he place them; and they shall be exalted or triumph to victory." This is precisely the same idea, and conveyed in nearly the same words, as that of our Lord: - "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne;" Revelation 3:21. "Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father, to him be glory," etc.; Revelation 1:5, Revelation 1:6.

LibraryWhether by his Passion Christ Merited to be Exalted?
Objection 1: It seems that Christ did not merit to be exalted on account of His Passion. For eminence of rank belongs to God alone, just as knowledge of truth, according to Ps. 112:4: "The Lord is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens." But Christ as man had the knowledge of all truth, not on account of any preceding merit, but from the very union of God and man, according to Jn. 1:14: "We saw His glory . . . as it were of the only-Begotten of the Father, full of grace and of truth." …

Messiah's Easy Yoke
1 Samuel 2:8
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. "For the foundations of the earth are the LORD's; on them he has set the world.
"Consider now: Who, being innocent, has ever perished? Where were the upright ever destroyed?
The lowly he sets on high, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.
When people are brought low and you say, 'Lift them up!' then he will save the downcast.
Does he not see my ways and count my every step?
But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;
