Job 42:16  (King James Version)
After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.

How long he had lived before his afflictions we cannot tell: if we could rely upon the LXX., all would be plain, which adds here, [ta de panta ete ezesen diakosia tessarakonta.] "And all the years he lived were two hundred and forty."
