Job 42

Then Job replied to the Lord : 
“I know that you can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted.

You asked, ‘Who is this that
obscures my plans without knowledge?’
Surely I spoke of things I did
not understand, things too
wonderful for me to know.

“You said, ‘Listen now, and I
will speak; I will question you,
and you shall answer me.’

My ears had heard of you but
now my eyes have seen you.

Therefore I despise myself
and repent in dust and ashes.”

After the Lord had said these
things to Job, he said to
Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am
angry with you and your two friends,
because you have not spoken the
truth about me, as my
servant Job has. So now take
seven bulls and seven rams
and go to my servant Job and
sacrifice a burnt offering
for yourselves. My servant
Job will pray for you, and
I will accept his prayer and
not deal with you according
to your folly. You have not
spoken the truth about me,
as my servant Job has.”
So Eliphaz the Temanite,
Bildad the Shuhite and
Zophar the Naamathite did
what the Lord told them;
and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer.

After Job had prayed for
his friends, the Lord restored
his fortunes and gave him
twice as much as he had before.
All his brothers and sisters
and everyone who had known him
before came and ate with him
in his house. They comforted
and consoled him over all the
trouble the Lord had brought
on him, and each one gave him
a piece of silver and a gold ring.

The Lord blessed the latter
part of Job’s life more than
the former part. He had fourteen
thousand sheep, six thousand
camels, a thousand yoke of oxen
and a thousand donkeys. And he
also had seven sons and three
daughters. The first daughter
he named Jemimah, the second
Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch.
Nowhere in all the land were
there found women as beautiful
as Job’s daughters, and their
father granted them an
inheritance along with their brothers.

After this, Job lived a hundred
and forty years; he saw his
children and their children
to the fourth generation.
And so Job died, an old man and full of years.

Job 42:1‭-‬17 NIV
