Job's Confession

1 Then Job answered the LORD and said, 2 "I know that 1You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. 3 'Who is this that 2hides counsel without knowledge?' "Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things 3too wonderful for me, which I did not know." 4 'Hear, now, and I will speak; I will 4ask You, and You instruct me.' 5 "I have 5heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my 6eye sees You; 6 Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes."

God Displeased with Job's Friends

7 It came about after the LORD had spoken these words to Job, that the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, because you have not spoken of Me what is right 7as My servant Job has. 8 "Now therefore, take for yourselves 8seven bulls and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer up a 9burnt offering for yourselves, and My servant Job will 10pray for you. 11For I will aaccept him so that I may not do with you according to your folly, because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has." 9 So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD told them; and the LORD baccepted Job.

God Restores Job's Fortunes

10 The LORD 12restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold. 11 Then all his 13brothers and all his sisters and all who had known him before came to him, and they ate bread with him in his house; and they 14consoled him and comforted him for all the adversities that the LORD had brought on him. And each one gave him one cpiece of money, and each a ring of gold. 12 15The LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; 16and he had 14,000 sheep and 6,000 camels and 1,000 yoke of oxen and 1,000 female donkeys. 13 17He had seven sons and three daughters. 14 He named the first Jemimah, and the second Keziah, and the third Keren-happuch. 15 In all the land no women were found so fair as Job's daughters; and their father gave them inheritance among their brothers. 16 After this, Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons and his grandsons, four generations. 17 18And Job died, an old man and full of days.
