|<< Job 42 >>|
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
I know that thou canst do every thing and that there is no thought hidden from thee.
Who is he that hides counsel without knowledge? Therefore, I have denounced that which I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
Hear, now, and I will speak; I will ask of thee, and thou shalt cause me to know.
With my ears I had heard thee; but now my eyes see thee.
Therefore, 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 has been kindled against thee, and against thy two friends; for ye have not spoken by me in uprightness, as my slave Job has.
8Therefore, take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my slave Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my slave Job shall pray for you; for only because I will accept him, I shall not deal with you according to your folly, in that ye have not spoken by me in uprightness, like my slave Job.
9So Eliphaz, the Temanite, and Bildad, the Shuhite, and Zophar, the Naamathite, went, and did according as the LORD commanded them; and the LORD 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 all his brethren came unto him and all his sisters and all those that had been of his acquaintance before and ate bread with him in his house; and they condoled him and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him; each one also gave him an ewe, and an earring of gold.
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 also had 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 no women were found as beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
16After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.
17So Job died, being old and full of days.
