Job 42:12 Meaning and Commentary

Job 42:12

So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his
beginning
Which verified the words of Bildad, ( Job 8:6 Job 8:7 ) ; though they were spoken by him only by way of supposition. All blessings are of the Lord, temporal and spiritual; and sometimes the last days of a good man are his best, as to temporal things, as were David's, and here Job's; though this is not always the case: however, if their last days are but the best in spiritual things, that is enough: if they have more faith, hope, love, patience, humility, and self-denial, and resignation of will to the will of God; are more holy, humble, spiritually and heavenly minded; have more light and knowledge in divine things; have more peace and joy, and are more fruitful in every good work, and more useful; and often they are in their very last moments most cheerful and comfortable: the best wine is reserved till last;

for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a
thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses:
just double the number of each of what he had before, ( Job 1:3 ) .
