Job 42 - Psalm 6 English Standard Version (ESV)
Job's Confession and Repentance
42 Then Job answered the Lord and said:
2 “I know that you can do all things,
The Lord Rebukes Job's Friends
7 After the Lord had spoken these words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “My anger burns against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. 8 Now therefore take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves. And my servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept his prayer not to deal with you according to your folly. For 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 what the Lord had told them, and the Lord accepted Job's prayer.
The Lord Restores Job's Fortunes
10 And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11 Then came to him all his brothers and sisters and all who had known him before, and ate bread with him in his house. And they showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil[b] that the Lord had brought upon him. And each of them gave him a piece of money[c] and a ring of gold.
12 And the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning. And he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. 13 He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14 And he called the name of the first daughter Jemimah, and the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-happuch. 15 And in all the land there were no women so beautiful as Job's daughters. And their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers. 16 And after this Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, four generations. 17 And Job died, an old man, and full of days.
The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked
1 Blessed is the man[d]
3 He is like a tree
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
The Reign of the Lord's Anointed
2 Why do the nations rage[f]
4 He who sits in the heavens laughs;
7 I will tell of the decree:
10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
Save Me, O My God
A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
3 O Lord, how many are my foes!
3 But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
5 I lay down and slept;
7 Arise, O Lord!
8 Salvation belongs to the Lord;
Answer Me When I Call
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
4 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
2 O men,[i] how long shall my honor be turned into shame?
4 Be angry,[j] and do not sin;
6 There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?
8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
Lead Me in Your Righteousness
To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.
5 Give ear to my words, O Lord;
4 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
9 For there is no truth in their mouth;
11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
O Lord, Deliver My Life
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith.[l] A Psalm of David.
6 O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger,
4 Turn, O Lord, deliver my life;
6 I am weary with my moaning;
8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
