Then Jobanswered the LORD and said,
"I know that 1You can do allthings, And that nopurpose of Yours can be thwarted.
3'Who is this that 2hidescounselwithoutknowledge?' "Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things3toowonderful for me, which I did not know."
4'Hear, now, and I will speak; I will 4ask You, and You instruct me.'
"I have 5heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my 6eyesees You;
6Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes."
It came about after the LORD had spokenthesewords to Job, that the LORDsaid to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you and against your twofriends, because you have not spoken of Me what is right7as My servantJob has.
8"Now therefore, take for yourselves 8sevenbulls and sevenrams, and go to My servantJob, and offer up a 9burntoffering for yourselves, and My servantJob 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 servantJob has."
So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathitewent and did as the LORDtold them; and the LORDbacceptedJob.
The LORD12restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORDincreasedall that Job had twofold.
Then all his 13brothers and all his sisters and all who had known him beforecame to him, and they atebread with him in his house; and they 14consoled him and comforted him for all the adversities that the LORD had brought on him. And eachonegave him onecpiece of money, and each a ring of gold.
1215The LORDblessed the latter days of Jobmorethan his beginning; 16and he had14,000sheep and 6,000camels and 1,000yoke of oxen and 1,000femaledonkeys.
1317He hadsevensons and threedaughters.
He named the firstJemimah, and the secondKeziah, and the thirdKeren-happuch.
In all the landnowomen were found so fair as Job'sdaughters; and their fathergave them inheritanceamong their brothers.
16Afterthis, Joblived140years, and saw his sons and his grandsons, fourgenerations.
1718And Jobdied, an oldman and full of days.
