Job 42

1Then Job answered Jehovah, and said, 2I know that thou can do all things, and that no purpose of thine can be restrained. 3Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge? Therefore I have uttered that which I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. 4Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak, I will ask of thee, and declare thou to me. 5I had heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees thee. 6Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. 7And it was so, that, after Jehovah had spoken these words to Job, Jehovah 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 has. 8Now therefore, take to you 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 I will accept, that I not deal with you after your folly. For ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job has. 9So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did according as Jehovah commanded them, and Jehovah accepted Job. 10And Jehovah turned back the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends. And Jehovah gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11Then there came 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. And they bemoaned him, and comforted him concerning all the evil that Jehovah had brought upon him. Each man also gave him a piece of money, and each one a ring of gold. 12So Jehovah blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning. And he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-donkeys. 13He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14And he called the name of the first, Jemimah, and the name of the second, Keziah, and the name of the third, Keren-happuch. 15And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job. And their father gave them inheritance among their brothers. 16And after this Job lived a hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations. 17So Job died, being old and full of days.
