Job submitteth himself unto God.
Job 42:1 Then Iob aunswered the Lorde, and sayd: Job 42:2 I know that thou hast power ouer all thynges, & that there is no thought hyd vnto þe. Job 42:3 For who can kepe his owne councell so secrete, but it shalbe knowne? Therfore haue I spoken vnwysely, seyng these thynges are so hye, & passe myne vnderstandynge. Job 42:4 O herken thou vnto me also, & let me speake: aunswere vnto the thynge that I wyll aske the Job 42:5 I haue geuen dyligente care vnto the, & nowe I se the with mine eyes. Job 42:6 Wherfor I geue myne owne selfe the blame, and take repentaunce in the duste and asshes.
God, preferring Job's cause, maketh his friends submit themselves, and accepteth him.
Job 42:7 Now when the Lord had spoken these wordes vnto Iob, he sayde vnto Elephas the Themanite: I am displeased with the & thy two frendes, for ye haue not spoken the thyng that is right before me, lyke as my seruaunte Iob hath done. Job 42:8 Therfore take .vij. oxen & .vij. rammes, and go to my seruaunte Iob: offre vp also for your selues a brentofferynge: & let my seruaunte Iob praye for you. Hym wyll I accepte, & not deale with you after youre folishnesse: in that ye haue not spoken the thynge whiche is right, like as my seruaunt Iob hath done. Job 42:9 So Elephas the Themanite, Baldad the Suhyte & Sophar the Naamathite went their waye, and dyd accordynge as the Lorde commaunded them. The Lorde also accepted the personne of Iob,
He magnifieth and blesseth Job.
Job 42:10 and the Lorde turned hym vnto Iob, when he prayed for his frendes. Yea the Lorde gaue Iob twyse as muche as he had a fore. Job 42:11 And then came there vnto him all hys brethren, all hys sisters, with all them that had bene of hys acquayntaunce afore, & ate bread wyth hym in hys house, wondryng at hym, & comfortyng hym ouer all the trouble, that the Lorde had brought vpon hym. Euery man gaue hym a shepe and a Iewell of golde. Job 42:12 And the Lorde made Iob rycher then he was before: for he had .xiiij.M. shepe .vi.M. camels, a .M. youcke of oxen, & a .M. asshes. Job 42:13 He had chyldren also .vij. sonnes & .iij. doughters. Job 42:14 The fyrste called daye: the seconde Pouerte: the thyrde all plenteousnes. Job 42:15 In all the lande were none found so fayre, as the doughters of Iob, & theyr father gaue them enherytaunce amonge theyr brethren.
