Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Job answereth Jehovah and saith: -- 1 Then Job replied to the LORD:
2 Thou hast known that [for] all things Thou art able, And not withheld from Thee is [any] device: 2 "I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.
3 `Who [is] this, hiding counsel without knowledge?' Therefore, I have declared, and understand not, Too wonderful for me, and I know not. 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, I pray thee, and I -- I do speak, I ask thee, and cause thou me to know.' 4 ["You said,] 'Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.'
5 By the hearing of the ear I heard Thee, And now mine eye hath seen Thee. 5 My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.
6 Therefore do I loathe [it], And I have repented on dust and ashes. 6 Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes."
7 And it cometh to pass after Jehovah's speaking these words unto Job, that Jehovah saith unto Eliphaz the Temanite, `Burned hath Mine anger against thee, and against thy two friends, because ye have not spoken concerning Me rightly, like My servant Job. 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 And now, take to you seven bullocks and seven rams, and go ye unto My servant Job, and ye have caused a burnt-offering to ascend for you; and Job My servant doth pray for you, for surely his face I accept, so as not to do with you folly, because ye have not spoken concerning Me rightly, like My servant Job. 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 And they go -- Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, Zophar the Naamathite -- and do as Jehovah hath spoken unto them; and Jehovah doth accept 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 And Jehovah hath turned [to] the captivity of Job in his praying for his friends, and Jehovah doth add [to] all that Job hath -- to double. 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 come unto him do all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all his former acquaintances, and they eat bread with him in his house, and bemoan him, and comfort him concerning all the evil that Jehovah had brought upon him, and they gave to him each one kesitah, and each one ring 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 Jehovah hath blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning, and he hath fourteen thousand of a flock, and six thousand camels, and a thousand pairs 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 hath seven sons and three daughters; 13 And he also had seven sons and three daughters.
14 and he calleth the name of the one Jemima, and the name of the second Kezia, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch. 14 The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch.
15 And there have not been found women fair as the daughters of Job in all the land, and their father doth give to them an inheritance in the midst of 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 liveth after this a hundred and forty years, and seeth his sons, and his sons' sons, four generations; 16 After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation.
17 and Job dieth, aged and satisfied [with] days. 17 And so he died, old and full of years.
