Job 42

21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

42 Then Job answered the Lord and said:

“I know that Thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withheld from Thee.

‘Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore have I uttered what I understood not, things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.

‘Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak; I will question thee, and declare thou unto Me.’

I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eye seeth Thee.

Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

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.

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 the Lord commanded them. The Lord also accepted Job.

10 And the Lord released Job from captivity 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 those who had been of his acquaintance before, and ate 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 sheasses.

13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.

14 And he called the name of the first Jemimah, and the name of the second Keziah, 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 an inheritance among their brethren.

16 After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his sons and his sons’ sons, even four generations.

17 So Job died, being old and full of days.
