John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 42:12

Blessed — Not only with spiritual, but also with temporal blessings. Just double to what they were, Job 1:3. This is a remarkable instance of the extent of the Divine providence, to things that seem minute as this, the exact number of a man's cattle; as also of the harmony of providence, and the reference of one event to another: for known unto God are all his works, from the beginning to the end.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 42:12

So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had (l) fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.

(l) God made him twice as rich in cattle as he was before, and gave him as many children as he had taken from him.
