Job submitteth himself unto God.
Job 42:1 Then Iob answered the Lorde, and sayde. Job 42:2 I knowe that thou hast power ouer all thynges, and that there is no thought hyd vnto þe. Job 42:3 For who can kepe hys awne councell so secrete, but it shalbe knowne? Therfore haue I spoken that I vnderstode not, the thynges that are so hye, & passe myne vnderstanding. Job 42:4 O herken thou vnto me also, and let me speake: answere vnto the thyng that I wyll aske þe. Job 42:5 I haue geuen diligent care vnto the, and now I se the wyth myne eyes. Job 42:6 Wherfore, I geue myne awne 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 fortuned, that the Lord sayde vnto Eliphas the Themanite: I am displeased with the, and thy two frendes, for ye haue not spoken of me the thynge that is ryght, lyke as my seruaunt Iob hath done. Job 42:8 Therfore, take you now seuen oxen and seuen rammes, and go to my seruaunt Iob, and offre vp for youre selues a brent offeringe: and my seruaunt Iob shall praye for you. Hym wyll I accepte, and not deale wyth you after youre folyshnesse: in that ye haue not spoken the thinge whych is ryght, lyke as my seruaunt Iob hath done. Job 42:9 So Eliphas the Themanite, and Bildad the Suhite & Sophar the Naamathite went their waye, and dyd accordyng as the Lord commaunded them, The Lord also accepted the personne of Iob,
He magnifieth and blesseth Job.
Job 42:10 and the Lorde turned the captiuite of Iob, when he prayed for his frindes: Yee, the Lord gaue Iob twyse as moch as he had afore. Job 42:11 And then came there vnto hym all hys brethren, all hys systers, & all they that had bene of hys acquayntaunce afore, & dyd eat bread with him in his housse, wondrynge at hym, and comfortynge hym ouer all the trouble, that the Lorde had brought vpon hym. Euery man also gaue hym a certayne some of money and a Iewell of golde. Job 42:12 And the Lorde made Iob rycher then he was before: for he had fourtene .M. shepe .vj.M. camels, a .M. youck of oxen, and a .M. asses. Job 42:13 He had seuen sonnes also & thre daughters. Job 42:14 The fyrst daughter called he Iemima: the second Kezia, and the thirde Kerenhapuch. Job 42:15 In all the land were no wemen found so fayre, as the daughters of Iob, and their father gaue them enheritaunce amonge their brethren.
