And so it was, after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, that the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has. Now therefore, take for yourselves (A)seven bulls and seven rams, (B)go to My servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall (C)pray for you. For I will accept [a]him, lest I deal with you according to your folly; because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has.

So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the Lord commanded them; for the Lord had [b]accepted Job. 10 (D)And the Lord [c]restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job (E)twice as much as he had before. 11 Then (F)all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the Lord had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.

12 Now the Lord blessed (G)the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had (H)fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. 13 (I)He also had seven sons and three daughters. 14 And he called the name of the first [d]Jemimah, the name of the second [e]Keziah, and the name of the third [f]Keren-Happuch. 15 In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.

16 After this Job (J)lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations. 17 So Job died, old and (K)full of days.
