1Then Job replied to the LORD:1Then Job answered the LORD and said:
2“I know that You can do all things and that no plan of Yours can be thwarted.2“I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
3You asked, ‘Who is this who conceals My counsel 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.
4You 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.’
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;
6Therefore I retract my words, and I repent in dust and ashes.”6therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”
7After the LORD had spoken these words to Job, He said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is kindled against you and your two friends. For you have not spoken about Me accurately, 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.
8So now, take seven bulls and seven rams, go to My servant Job, and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. Then My servant Job will pray for you, for I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken accurately 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.”
9So 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 request.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.
10After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his prosperity and doubled his former possessions.10And the LORD restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11All his brothers and sisters and prior acquaintances came and dined with him in his house. They consoled him and comforted him over all the adversity that the LORD had brought upon him. And each one gave him a piece of silver and a gold ring.11Then came to him all his brothers and sisters and all who had known him before, and ate bread with him in his house. And they showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him. And each of them gave him a piece of money and a ring of gold.
12So the LORD blessed Job's latter days more than his first. He owned 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.12And the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning. And he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.
13And he also had seven sons and three daughters.13He had also seven sons and three daughters.
14He named his first daughter Jemimah, his second Keziah, and his third Keren-happuch.14And he called the name of the first daughter Jemimah, and the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-happuch.
15No women as beautiful as Job’s daughters could be found in all the land, and their father granted them an inheritance among their brothers.15And in all the land there were no women so beautiful as Job’s daughters. And their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.
16After this, Job lived 140 years and saw his children and their children to the fourth generation.16And after this Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, four generations.
17And so Job died, old and full of years.17And Job died, an old man, and full of days.
