Job 42
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Job Submits Himself to the LORD

1And Job will answer Jehovah, and he will say,

2I knew that thou wilt be able to do all, and counsel shall not be restrained from thee.

3Who this hiding counsel without knowledge? for this, I announced, and I shall not understand; wonders above me, and I shall not know.

4Hear, now, and I will speak: I will ask thee and make thou known to me.

5By the hearing of the ear I heard of thee: and now mine eyes saw thee:

6For this, I shall melt away, and I lamented in dust and ashes.

The LORD Rebukes Job’s Friends

7And it will be after Jehovah spake these words to Job, and Jehovah will say to Eliphaz the Temanite, Mine anger was kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye spake not the right before me as my servant Job. 8And now take to you seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and bring up a burnt-offering for yourselves; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for his face I will accept, so as not to do with you for folly, for ye spake not to me the right as my servant Job. 9And Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, Zophar the Naamathite, will go, and they will do according as God Jehovah spake: and Jehovah will accept the face of Job.

The LORD Blesses Job

10And Jehovah turned back the captivity of Job in his praying for his friends: and Jehovah added all which was to Job, to the double. 11And there will come to him all his brethren and all his sisters, and all knowing him before; and they will eat bread with him in his house: and they will deplore for him, and they will comfort him upon all the evil which Jehovah brought upon him: and they will give to him each one weight, and each one ring of gold. 12And Jehovah blessed the latter state of Job more than his beginning: and there will be to him fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-asses. 13And there will be to him seven sons and three daughters. 14And he will call the name of the one, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Keren-Happuch. 15And women were not found fair as the daughters of Job, in all the land: and their father will give to them an inheritance in the midst of their brethren. 16And Job will live after this a hundred and forty years, and he will see his sons, and his sons' sons, four generations. 17And Job will die, old and full of days.
