Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then Iyov answered the LORD, 1 Then Job replied to the LORD:
2 "I know that you can do all things, And that no purpose of yours can be restrained. 2 "I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.
3 You asked, 'Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?' Therefore I have uttered that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I didn't know. 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 You said, 'Listen, now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you will answer me.' 4 ["You said,] 'Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.'
5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees you. 5 My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.
6 Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes." 6 Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes."
7 It was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words to Iyov, the LORD said to Elifaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you, and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Iyov has. 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 Now therefore, take to yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my servant Iyov, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Iyov shall pray for you, for I will accept him, that I not deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Iyov has." 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 Elifaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuchite and Tzofar the Na`amatite went, and did what the LORD commanded them, and the LORD accepted Iyov. 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 turned the captivity of Iyov, when he prayed for his friends. The LORD gave Iyov 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 Then came there to him all his brothers, and all his sisters, and all those who had been of his acquaintance before, and ate bread with him in his house. They comforted him, and consoled him concerning all the evil that the LORD had brought on him. Everyone also gave him a piece of money, and everyone a 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 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Iyov more than his beginning. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand female donkeys. 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 He had also seven sons and three daughters. 13 And he also had seven sons and three daughters.
14 He called the name of the first, Yemimah; and the name of the second, Ketzi`a; and the name of the third, Keren-Happukh. 14 The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch.
15 In all the land were no women found so beautiful as the daughters of Iyov. Their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers. 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 After this Iyov lived one hundred forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, to four generations. 16 After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation.
17 So Iyov died, being old and full of days. 17 And so he died, old and full of years.
