Job Submits Himself to God

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1Then Job replied to the LORD:1Then Job answered the LORD and said:1Then Job answered the LORD and said,1Then Job answered the LORD, and said,1Then Job replied to the LORD:
2"I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.2“I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.2"I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.2I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.2I know that You can do anything and no plan of Yours can be thwarted.
3You 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.3‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.3'Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' "Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know."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.3You asked, "Who is this who conceals My counsel with ignorance?" Surely I spoke about things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.
4"You said, 'Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.'4‘Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you make it known to me.’4'Hear, now, and I will speak; I will ask You, and You instruct me.'4Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.4You said, "Listen now, and I will speak. When I question you, you will inform Me."
NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
5My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.5I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you;5"I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You;5I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.5I had heard rumors about You, but now my eyes have seen You.
6Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes."6therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”6Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes."6Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.6Therefore I take back my words and repent in dust and ashes.

The Lord Rebukes Job's Friends

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
7After 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.7After the LORD had spoken these words to Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “My anger burns against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.7It came about after the LORD had spoken these words to Job, that the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, because you have not spoken of Me what is right as My servant Job has.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.7After the LORD had finished speaking to Job, He said to Eliphaz the Temanite: "I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken the truth about Me, as My servant Job has.
8So 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."8Now therefore take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves. And my servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept his prayer not to deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.”8"Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves, and My servant Job will pray for you. For I will accept him so that I may not do with you according to your folly, because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has."8Therefore 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.8Now take seven bulls and seven rams, go to My servant Job, and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. Then My servant Job will pray for you. I will surely accept his prayer and not deal with you as your folly deserves. For you have not spoken the truth about Me, as My servant Job has."
9So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job's prayer.9So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did what the LORD had told them, and the LORD accepted Job’s prayer.9So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job.9So 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.9Then Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD had told them, and the LORD accepted Job's prayer.
