Job 42
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Job answers YHWH and says:

2“You have known that [for] all things You are able, "" And no purpose is withheld from You.

3[You said], Who [is] this hiding counsel without knowledge? Therefore, I have declared, and do not understand, "" Too wonderful for me, and I do not know.

4Please hear, and I speak; [You said], I ask you, and you cause Me to know.

5By the hearing of the ear I heard You, "" And now my eye has seen You.

6Therefore I loathe [it], "" And I have sighed on dust and ashes.”

7And it comes to pass after YHWH’s speaking these words to Job, that YHWH says to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My anger has burned against you and against your two friends, because you have not spoken correctly concerning Me, like My servant Job. 8And now, take seven bullocks and seven rams for yourselves, and go to My servant Job, and you have caused a burnt-offering to ascend for yourselves; and Job My servant prays for you, for surely I accept his face, so as not to do folly with you, because you have not spoken correctly concerning Me, like My servant Job.” 9And they go—Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, Zophar the Naamathite—and do as YHWH has spoken to them; and YHWH accepts the face of Job.

10And YHWH has turned [to] the captivity of Job in his praying for his friends, and YHWH adds [to] all that Job has—to double. 11And all his brothers come to him, and all his sisters, and all his former acquaintances, and they eat bread with him in his house, and bemoan him, and comfort him concerning all the calamity that YHWH had brought on him, and they each gave to him one kesitah, and each one ring of gold. 12And YHWH has blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning, and he has fourteen thousand of a flock, and six thousand camels, and one thousand pairs of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. 13And he has seven sons and three daughters; 14and he calls the name of the first Jemima, and the name of the second Kezia, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch. 15And there have not been found women [as] beautiful as the daughters of Job in all the land, and their father gives to them an inheritance in the midst of their brothers. 16And Job lives after this one hundred and forty years, and sees his sons, and his sons’ sons, four generations; 17and Job dies, aged and satisfied [with] days.
