Job 42

1 Then Iyov answered the LORD,
2 "I know that you can do all things, And that no purpose of yours can be restrained.
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.
4 You said, 'Listen, now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you will answer me.'
5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees you.
6 Therefore I abhor 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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
13 He had also 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.
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.
16 After this Iyov lived one hundred forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, to four generations.
17 So Iyov died, being old and full of days.
