Job 42


42:1 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
42:2 I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no
 thought can be withheld from thee.
42:3 Who [is] he that hideth counsel without knowledge?
 therefore have I uttered that which I understood not; things
 too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
42:4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will ask of thee,
 and declare thou to me.
42:5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now my
 eye seeth thee.
42:6 Wherefore I abhor [myself], and repent in dust and ashes.
42:7 And it was [so], that after the LORD had spoken these words
 to 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].
42:8 Therefore take to you now seven bullocks and seven rams,
 and go to my servant Job, and offer 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.
42:9 So 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.
42:10 And 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.
42:11 Then came there to him all his brethren, and all his
 sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before,
 and ate bread with him in his house: and they condoled with
 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 ear-ring of gold.
42:12 So 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.
42:13 He had also seven sons, and three daughters.
42:14 And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name
 of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch.
42:15 And in all the land were no women found [so] fair as the
 daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among
 their brethren.
42:16 After this Job lived a hundred and forty years, and saw
 his sons, and his sons' sons, [even] four generations.
42:17 So Job died, [being] old and full of days.
