Job answered the LORD, and said,
2I know that
thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.
3Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things
too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
5I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
6Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
7And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said
to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing
that is right, as my servant Job hath.
take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and
my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken
of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.
Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the LORD commanded them:
the LORD also accepted Job.
10And the LORD
turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they
that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him
over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of
12So the LORD blessed the latter end
of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen,
and a thousand she asses.
13He had also seven
sons and three daughters.
14And he called
the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.
15And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and
their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.
17So Job died, being old and full of days.
