Then Job answered JEHOVAH, and said,
I know that thou canst do every thing,
And that no thought can be withholden from thee.
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.
Hear, I beseech Thee, and I will speak:
I will demand of thee, and declare Thou unto me.
I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear:
But now mine eye seeth Thee.
Wherefore I abhor myself,
And repent in dust and aashes.
And it was so,
That after JEHOVAH had spoken these words unto Job,
JEHOVAH 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.
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.
So Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite,
and Zophar the Naamathite went,
And did according as JEHOVAH commanded them:
JEHOVAH also accepted Job.
And JEHOVAH turned the captivity of Job,
When he prayed for his friends:
Also JEHOVAH gave Job twice as much as he had before.
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 JEHOVAH had brought upon him:
Every man also gave him a piece of money,
And every one an earring of gold.
So JEHOVAH 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.
He had also seven sons and three daughters.
And he called the name of the first, Jemima;
And the name of the second, Kezia;
And the name of the third, Keren-happuch.
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.
aAfter this lived Job an hundred and forty years,
And saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.
aThe fact that Job was considered an old man before
his trial by difficulties, and yet lived another 140 years, leads
me to conclude that he lived sometime before Abraham when men lived
longer than even Abraham who died at 175 years.
So Job died, being old and full of days.
