Job 42

1Then Job answered the Lord. Job said, 2“Lord, I know you can do everything. You make plans, and nothing can change or stop your plans. 3Lord, you asked this question: 'Who is this ignorant person that is saying these foolish things?’ Lord, I talked about things that I didn’t understand. I talked about things that were too amazing for me to understand. 4“Lord, you said to me, 'Listen Job, and I will speak. I will ask you questions, and you will answer me.’ 5Lord, in the past, I heard about you, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. 6And Lord, I am ashamed of myself. Lord, I am so sorry. As I sit in the dust and ashes, I promise to change my heart and my life.” 7After the Lord finished talking to Job, he spoke to Eliphaz from Teman. The Lord said to Eliphaz, “I am angry at you and your two friends. Why? Because you didn’t say right things about me. But Job is my servant. Job said right things about me. 8So now Eliphaz, get seven bulls and seven rams. Take them to my servant Job. Kill them and offer them as a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will answer his prayer. Then I won’t give you the punishment that you deserve. You should be punished because you were very foolish. You didn’t say right things about me. But my servant Job said right things about me.” 9So Eliphaz from Teman, and Bildad from Shuah, and Zophar from Naamah obeyed the Lord. Then the Lord answered Job’s prayer. 10Job prayed for his friends. And the Lord made Job successful again. God gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11Then all of Job’s brothers and sisters and all of the people that knew Job before came to his house. They all ate a big meal with Job. They comforted Job. They were sorry that the Lord had brought so much trouble to Job. Each person gave Job a piece of silver and a gold ring. 12The Lord blessed Job with even more things than he had in the beginning. Job got 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 2,000 cows, and 1,000 female donkeys. 13Job also got seven sons and three daughters. 14Job named the first daughter Jemimah. Job named the second daughter Keziah. And Job named the third daughter Keren Happuch. 15Job’s daughters were among the most beautiful women in all the country. And Job even gave part of his property to his daughters—they each got a share of the property, just like their brothers. 16So, Job lived for 140 years more. He lived to see his children, his grandchildren, his great-grandchildren, and his great-great-grandchildren. 17Job lived to be a very old man who had lived a good long life.
