Job’s Confession

1 Then Job answered the LORD and said,
  2 “I know that aYou can do all things,
  And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.
  3 ‘Who is this that ahides counsel without knowledge?’
  Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand,
  Things btoo wonderful for me, which I did not know.”
  4 ‘Hear, now, and I will speak;
  I will aask You, and You instruct me.’
  5 “I have aheard of You by the hearing of the ear;
  But now my beye sees You;
  6 Therefore I retract,
  And I repent in dust and ashes.”

God Displeased with Job’s Friends

7 ¶ It 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 aas My servant Job has. 8 Now therefore, take for yourselves aseven bulls and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer up a bburnt offering for yourselves, and My servant Job will cpray for you. dFor I will Iaccept 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.” 9 So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite [and] Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD told them; and the LORD Iaccepted Job.

God Restores Job’s Fortunes

10 ¶ The LORD arestored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold. 11 Then all his abrothers and all his sisters and all who had known him before came to him, and they ate bread with him in his house; and they bconsoled him and comforted him for all the adversities that the LORD had brought on him. And each one gave him one Ipiece of money, and each a ring of gold. 12 aThe LORD blessed the latter [days] of Job more than his beginning; band he had 14,000 sheep and 6,000 camels and 1,000 yoke of oxen and 1,000 female donkeys. 13 aHe had seven sons and three daughters. 14 He named the first Jemimah, and the second Keziah, and the third Keren-happuch. 15 In all the land no women were found so fair as Job’s daughters; and their father gave them inheritance among their brothers. 16 After this, Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons and his grandsons, four generations. 17 aAnd Job died, an old man and full of days.

Job submitteth himself unto God.

1 ¶ Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 2 I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no thought can be withholden from thee. 3 Who [is] he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. 4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. 6 Wherefore I abhor [myself], and repent in dust and ashes.

God, preferring Job's cause, maketh his friends submit themselves, and accepteth him.

7 ¶ And 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]. 8 Therefore 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. 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.

He magnifieth and blesseth Job.

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. 11 Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned 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 earring of gold. 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. 13 He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14 And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. 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.
