New International Version
3 and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys,(A) and had a large number of servants.(B) He was the greatest man(C) among all the people of the East.(D)
4 His sons used to hold feasts(E) in their homes on their birthdays, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified.(F) Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering(G) for each of them, thinking, “Perhaps my children have sinned(H) and cursed God(I) in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular custom.
