Job's Confession

  border
Job 42:1   Then Job answered the LORD and said,
   
Job 42:2   "I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.
   
Job 42:3   'Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' "Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know."
   
Job 42:4   'Hear, now, and I will speak; I will ask You, and You instruct me.'
   
Job 42:5   "I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You;
   
Job 42:6   Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes."
     
   

God Displeased with Job's Friends

   
Job 42:7   It came about after the LORD had spoken these words to Job, that the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, because you have not spoken of Me what is right as My servant Job has.
   
Job 42:8   "Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves, and My servant Job will pray for you. For I will accept him so that I may not do with you according to your folly, because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has."
   
Job 42:9   So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job.
     
   

God Restores Job's Fortunes

And each one gave him one piece of money, and each a ring of gold.
