42 Thena Job answered Yahweh and said,
and any scheme from you will not be thwarted.
Therefore I uttered, butb I did not understand;
⌊things too wonderful for me⌋,c but I did not know.
I will question you, thend inform me.’
bute now my eye has seen you.
and repent in dust and ashes.”
7 ⌊And then⌋f after Yahweh spoke these words to Job, Yahweh said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “⌊My wrath has been kindled⌋g against youh and against the two of your friends, for youi have not spoken to me what is right as my servant Job has. 8 ⌊So then⌋,j take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my servant Job and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. And my servant Job will pray for you,k for ⌊I will certainly accept his prayer⌋,l so that it will not be done with youm according to your folly, for youn have not spoken to me what is right as my servant Job has.”
10 Thenq Yahweh returned Job’s fortune when he prayed to him on behalf of his friends. Thusr Yahweh increased ⌊all that Job had twice as much as before⌋.s 11 Sot all his brothers and all his sisters and all those who had known him ⌊before⌋u came to him, and they ate breadv with him in his house and showed sympathy to him and comforted him for all the disasterw that Yahweh had brought upon him. Thenx each one gave to him one piece of money, and each one gave to him one ornamental ring of gold.
12 Soy Yahweh blessed Job’s latter days more than his beginning. ⌊Thus he had⌋z fourteen thousand sheep and goats and six thousand camels and a thousand pair of oxen and a thousand female donkeys. 13 ⌊And he had⌋a seven sons and three daughters. 14 And he called the name of the first Jemimah and the name of the second Keziah and the name of the third Qeren-Happuk. 15 And beautiful women were not found in all the land like Job’s daughters, and their father gave to them an inheritance in the midst of their brothers.
