Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO JOB 42\\

This chapter contains Job's answer to the last speech of the Lord's, in
which he acknowledges his omnipotence, and his certain performance of
his purposes and pleasure; owns his own folly and ignorance, and
confesses his sins; for which he abhorred himself, and of which he
repented, \\#Job 42:1-6\\; it also gives an account of the Lord's decision
of the controversy between Job and his friends, blaming them and
commending him above them; and ordered them to take sacrifices and go
to Job and offer them, who should pray for them and be accepted, which
was done, \\#Job 42:7-9\\; and it closes with a relation of the great
prosperity Job was restored unto, in which he lived and died,
\\#Job 42:10-17\\.
