The Lord Restores Job's Fortunes

Job 42

10 And the Lord r restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job s twice as much as he had before. 11 Then came to him all his t brothers and sisters and all who had t known him before, and ate bread with him in his house. And they u showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil 1 that the Lord had brought upon him. And each of them gave him v a piece of money 2 and w a ring of gold.

12 And the Lord blessed x the latter days of Job more than his beginning. And he had y 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. 13 He had also z seven sons and three daughters. 14 And he called the name of the first daughter Jemimah, and the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-happuch. 15 And in all the land there were no women so beautiful as Job's daughters. And their father gave them an inheritance a among their brothers. 16 And after this Job lived 140 years, and b saw his sons, and his sons' sons, four generations. 17 And Job died, an old man, and c full of days.
