Then Darius the Mede, son of Assuerus, was raised to the throne of Chaldaea; and in the year when his reign began who but I, Daniel, should discover by the reading of old records, how to compute the seventy years of Jerusalem’s widowhood? Such doom the Lord had foretold to the prophet Jeremias. And with that, I turned to the Lord my God; pray to him I would, and sue for mercy, fasting ever, sackcloth and ashes my only wear.
In the first year of Darius the son of Assuerus of the seed of the Medes, who reigned over the kingdom of the Chaldeans: The first year of his reign, I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, concerning which the word of the Lord came to Jeremias the prophet, that seventy years should be accomplished of the desolation of Jerusalem. And I set my face to the Lord my God, to pray and make supplication with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes.
No quotation marks in either.
Job 34 - Knox -
And Eliu spoke on: A word for the wise; listen, you that are the world’s sages; for food, the discerning palate, for wisdom, the discerning ear. Award we must give, this way or that; of two ways we must choose the better. Here is Job telling us that he is innocent, that God denies him his rights, judges him falsely, and plies him with punishment undeserved. Are there many such, many that thirst so greedily for the opportunity to cavil? What is this but to take part with wrong-doers, range himself among the impious, when he complains that there is no pleasing God, however ready a man is to do his will?
And Eliu continued his discourse, and said: Hear ye, wise men, my words, and ye learned, hearken to me: For the ear trieth words, and the mouth discerneth meats by the taste. Let us choose to us judgment, and let us see among ourselves what is the best. For Job hath said: I am just, and God hath overthrown my judgment.
For in judging me there is a lie: my arrow is violent without any sin. What man is there like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water? Who goeth in company with them that work iniquity, and walketh with wicked men? For he hath said: Man shall not please God, although he run with him.
I also found myself really liking the Knox one-column layout. It changes the flow and readability in a surprising way.
