Job’s Repentance and Restoration
42 Then[a] Job answered Yahweh and said,
2 “I know that you can do all things,
7 And then[f] after Yahweh spoke these words to Job, Yahweh said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath has been kindled[g] against you[h] and against the two of your friends, for you[i] have not spoken to me what is right as my servant Job has. 8 So then,[j] take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my servant Job and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. And my servant Job will pray for you,[k] for I will certainly accept his prayer,[l] so that it will not be done with you[m] according to your folly, for you[n] have not spoken to me what is right as my servant Job has.”
10 Then[q] Yahweh returned Job’s fortune when he prayed to him on behalf of his friends. Thus[r] Yahweh increased all that Job had twice as much as before.[s] 11 So[t] all his brothers and all his sisters and all those who had known him before[u] came to him, and they ate bread[v] with him in his house and showed sympathy to him and comforted him for all the disaster[w] that Yahweh had brought upon him. Then[x] each one gave to him one piece of money, and each one gave to him one ornamental ring of gold.
12 So[y] Yahweh blessed Job’s latter days more than his beginning. Thus he had[z] fourteen thousand sheep and goats and six thousand camels and a thousand pair of oxen and a thousand female donkeys. 13 And he had[aa] 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 Qeren-Happuk. 15 And beautiful women were not found in all the land like Job’s daughters, and their father gave to them an inheritance in the midst of their brothers.
