The Lord Restores Job's Fortunes

10 And the Lord (A)restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job (B)twice as much as he had before. 11 Then came to him all his (C)brothers and sisters and all who had (D)known him before, and ate bread with him in his house. And they (E)showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil[a] that the Lord had brought upon him. And each of them gave him (F)a piece of money[b] and (G)a ring of gold.

12 And the Lord blessed (H)the latter days of Job more than his beginning. And he had (I)14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. 13 He had also (J)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 (K)among their brothers. 16 And after this Job lived 140 years, and (L)saw his sons, and his sons' sons, four generations. 17 And Job died, an old man, and (M)full of days.
