Job submitteth himself unto God.
Job 42:1 Then Iob aunswered the Lord, and saide: Job 42:2 I know that thou hast power ouer all thinges, and that there is no thought hid vnto thee. Job 42:3 For who can keepe his owne counsaile so secrete but it shalbe knowen? Therefore haue I spoken that I vnderstoode not, euen the thinges that are to wonderfull for me, and passe myne vnderstanding. Job 42:4 O hearken thou vnto me also, and let me speake: aunswere vnto the thing that I wyll aske thee. Job 42:5 I haue heard of thee by the hearing of the eare, but nowe myne eye seeth thee. Job 42:6 Wherefore I geue myne owne selfe the blame, and take repentaunce in the dust and asshes.
God, preferring Job's cause, maketh his friends submit themselves, and accepteth him.
Job 42:7 Now when the Lorde had spoken these wordes vnto Iob, it came to passe that the Lorde saide to Eliphas the Themanite: I am displeased with thee, and thy two friendes: for ye haue not spoken of me the thyng that is right, lyke as my seruaunt Iob hath done. Job 42:8 Therefore take you now seuen oxen, and seuen rammes, and go to my seruaunt Iob, and offer vp for your selues a burnt offring, and my seruaunt Iob shall pray for you: him wyll I accept, and not deale with you after your foolishnesse, in that ye haue not spoken of me the thing which is right, lyke as my seruaunt Iob hath done. Job 42:9 So Eliphas the Themanite, and Bildad the Suhite, and Sophar the Naamathite, went and did according as the Lorde commaunded them: the Lorde also accepted the person of Iob,
He magnifieth and blesseth Job.
Job 42:10 And the Lorde tourned the captiuitie of Iob when he prayed for his friendes: Yea the Lorde gaue Iob twyse as much as he had afore. Job 42:11 And then came there vnto him all his brethren, all his sisters, and all they that had ben of his acquaintaunce afore, and did eate bread with him in his house, and had compassion on him, and comforted him ouer all trouble that the Lorde had brought vpon him: euery man also gaue him a certaine summe of money, and a iewell of golde. Job 42:12 So the Lorde blessed the last dayes of Iob more then the first: for he had fourteene thousand sheepe, sixe thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses: Job 42:13 He had seuen sonnes also, and three daughters. Job 42:14 The first daughter called he Iemima, the second Kezia, and the third Kerenhapuch. Job 42:15 In al the land were no women found so faire as the daughters of Iob: and their father gaue them inheritaunce among their brethren.
Job's age and death.
Job 42:16 After this liued Iob an hundred and fourtie yeres: so that he sawe his children, and his childrens children into the fourth generation. Job 42:17 And so Iob dyed, being olde, and of a perfect age.
