9 Jabez was 10more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, "Because I bore him in pain."b
10 Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, "Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harmc so that it might not bring me pain!" And God granted what he asked.
