Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then Job answered the Lord, and said: 1 Then Job replied to the LORD:
2 I know that thou canst do all things, and no thought is hid from thee. 2 "I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.
3 Who is this that hideth counsel without knowledge? Therefore I have spoken unwisely, and things that above measure exceeded my knowledge. 3 [You asked,] 'Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?' Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.
4 Hear, and I will speak: I will ask thee, and do thou tell me. 4 ["You said,] 'Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.'
5 With the hearing of the ear, I have heard thee, but now my eye seeth thee. 5 My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.
6 Therefore I reprehend myself, and do penance in dust and ashes. 6 Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes."
7 And after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Themanite: My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends, because you have not spoken the thing that is right before me, as my servant Job hath. 7 After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.
8 Take unto you therefore seven oxen and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer for yourselves a holocaust, and my servant Job shall pray for you: his face I will accept, that folly be not imputed to you: for you have not spoken right things before me, as my servant Job hath. 8 So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has."
9 So Eliphaz the Themanite, and Baldad the Suhite, and Sophar the Naamathite went, and did as the Lord had spoken to them, and the Lord accepted the face of Job. 9 So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job's prayer.
10 The Lord also was turned at the penance of Job, when he prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. 10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before.
11 And all his brethren came to him, and all his sisters, and all that knew him before, and they ate bread with him in his house: and bemoaned him, and comforted him upon all the evil that God had brought upon him. And every man gave him one ewe, and one earring of gold. 11 All his brothers and sisters and everyone who had known him before came and ate with him in his house. They comforted and consoled him over all the trouble the LORD had brought upon him, and each one gave him a piece of silver and a gold ring.
12 And the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning. And he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. 12 The LORD blessed the latter part of Job's life more than the first. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys.
13 And he had seven sons, and three daughters. 13 And he also had seven sons and three daughters.
14 And he called the name of one Dies, and the name of the second Cassia, and the name of the third Cornustibii. 14 The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch.
15 And there were not found in all the earth women so beautiful as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. 15 Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job's daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers.
16 And Job lived after these things, a hundred and forty years, and he saw his children, and his children’s children, unto the fourth generation, 16 After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation.
17 (42-16) and he died an old man, and full of days. 17 And so he died, old and full of years.
