Job 42:1-11

GNTA 1 Then Job answered the Lord. NIV 1 Then Job replied to the LORD: GNTA 2 I know, Lord, that you are all-powerful; that you can do everything you want. NIV 2 “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted. GNTA 3 You ask how I dare question your wisdom when I am so very ignorant. I talked about things I did not understand, about marvels too great for me to know. NIV 3 You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. GNTA 4 You told me to listen while you spoke and to try to answer your questions. NIV 4 “You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’ GNTA 5 In the past I knew only what others had told me, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. NIV 5 My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. GNTA 6 So I am ashamed of all I have said and repent in dust and ashes. NIV 6 Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.” GNTA 7 After the Lord had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz, "I am angry with you and your two friends, because you did not speak the truth about me, the way my servant Job did. NIV 7 After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has. GNTA 8 Now take seven bulls and seven rams to Job and offer them as a sacrifice for yourselves. Job will pray for you, and I will answer his prayer and not disgrace you the way you deserve. You did not speak the truth about me as he did." NIV 8 So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has.” GNTA 9 Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar did what the Lord had told them to do, and the Lord answered Job's prayer. NIV 9 So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job’s prayer. GNTA 10 Then, after Job had prayed for his three friends, the Lord made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had had before. NIV 10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. GNTA 11 All Job's brothers and sisters and former friends came to visit him and feasted with him in his house. They expressed their sympathy and comforted him for all the troubles the Lord had brought on him. Each of them gave him some money and a gold ring. NIV 11 All his brothers and sisters and everyone who had known him before came and ate with him in his house. They comforted and consoled him over all the trouble the LORD had brought on him, and each one gave him a piece of silver and a gold ring.
