1 Then Iob answered the Lord, and said,

2 I know that thou canst doe euery thing, and that no thought can bee withholden from thee.

3 Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore haue I vttered that I vnderstood not, things too wonderfull for me, which I knew not.

4 Heare, I beseech thee, and I will speake: I will demand of thee, and declare thou vnto me.

5 I haue heard of thee by the hearing of the eare: but now mine eye seeth thee.

6 Wherefore I abhorre my selfe, and repent in dust and ashes.

7 And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words vnto Iob, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, & against thy two friends: for ye haue not spoken of mee the thing that is right, as my seruant Iob hath.

8 Therefore take vnto you now seuen bullocks, and seuen rammes, and goe to my seruant Iob, and offer vp for your selues a burnt offring, and my seruant Iob shal pray for you, for him wil I accept: lest I deale with you after your folly, in that ye haue not spoken of mee the thing which is right, like my seruant Iob.

9 So Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the Lord commanded them: the Lord also accepted Iob.

10 And the Lord turned the captiuitie of Iob, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gaue Iob twice as much as he had before.

11 Then came there vnto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had bin of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoned him, and comforted him ouer all the euill that the Lord had brought vpon him: euery man also gaue him a piece of money, and euery one an eare-ring of gold.

12 So the Lord blessed the latter end of Iob, more then his beginning: for he had fourteene thousand sheepe, and sixe thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand shee asses.

13 He had also seuen sonnes, and three daughters.

14 And he called the name of the first, Iemima, and the name of the second, Kezia, and the name of the third, Keren-happuch.

15 And in all the land were no women found so faire as the daughters of Iob: and their father gaue them inheritance among their brethren.

16 After this liued Iob an hundred and fourtie yeeres, and saw his sonnes, and his sonnes sonnes, euen foure generations.

17 So Iob died being old, and full of dayes.

Nonjabulo's Job Chapter 42 comment on 3/18/2014, 10:59pm...

If u read verse 1 you will find Job saying Lord I know u have gud plans We should know dat in Jeremia 29 11 12 God says He knew us while we were on our mothers womb wat devil is trying to do to destroy us he has no power no matter how painful it is but hold on if u put it pratically how can u say u know your redeemer lives But u in pain loose every everything nobody is no yo side we need God each and every1 so that we will be able to stand at tymes things cannot make sense but we shouldnot forget that our saviours word to us is full of hope he will be alwaz there if we look for help comfortin our sorrows and dissapointment Let not your heart be troubled He said ye believe in God The path of sincerity and intergrity is not a path free from obstruction but in every difficult we are to see a call prayer whatsoever ye shall ask in my name said Jesus that will do let us learn to trust God like Job even if life doesnot make sense as long as God is on our side it is well


George's Job Chapter 42 comment about verse 6 on 11/15/2013, 2:07pm...

And this how we should feel about our sinfulness before God and our sins that cost us so much in our lives when we allow them to control us instead of God. And we should also continue past abhorring ourselves and also repent of them before God and leave the paths of sin which pleases God when we trust fully in the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour. Sincerely ;


George's Job Chapter 42 comment about verse 7 on 11/15/2013, 1:53pm...

The tendency of our Christian friends at times is to judge us about why we are going through what we are going through. Yes, at times it could be for sinful reasons for chastisement. But sometimes it is only being used to grow us spiritually or as in this case to prove to satan that Job did fear and love God for no other reason then that . And not for any alterior motives or for what God had blessed him with but for the love of God himself. Who Job knew to be his redeemer and that he would stand at the later day upon the earth. And these friends were in some ways used by the devil which is why we should always guard our tongues when someone is going through something hard in their lives and seek to encourage and help them instead of have unrighteous judgments on them since the ultimate judge will determine our motives one day at the Judgment seat of Christ which is the judgment for believers and their works after they were saved. But the lost sinner will be judged for all of the sins he has done and why he didn't repent of his sins against God and trust his Son, the Lord Jesus as his personal Saviour when he had opportunity to do so. We do not have full knowledge of everything as God does and in this account with Job and his friends although they said some notable things yet they judged Job harshly as well as out of line with the way Job really lived. And very few Christians today I believe come up to the things Job did for other people and the things he didn't do. Although God reproved Job for judging him also. Wilt thou condemn me that thou mayest be righteous. So we shouldn't condemn God's dealings in our lives or think we are more righteous then God nor should we judge peoples hardships in life as being because they are a hypocrite or were living wicked or some other assumption on them. But we should instead judge righteous judgment according to the facts about someone. So let us comfort those in need and encourage them since we to may need it someday in our own lives. And also as these friends be ashamed when God reproves us and demands a sacrifice from us and commends the one who we judged unfairly without factual evidence fro doing so. Sincerely ;


George's Job Chapter 42 comment about verse 2 on 11/15/2013, 1:34pm...

Yes, indeed, this is very true . God can do everything and we should have the faith that he is able to do so instead of doubting him in our lives. And also the fact that no thought can be withholden from him. He knows what we even think about so we should be careful what we meditate on that it is not sinful since out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Therefore if we seek to think on things that are honest, just , pure , lovely , any virtue or any praise we will also do the right things in our lives instead of the sinful things at least if we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour through repentance a change of mind about our sins before God and then wanting to turn away from them and then trust in the Lord Jesus , God's Son , as our own personal Saviour . Believing in our hearts that he died for all of our sins on the cross of Calvary, was buried, and rose again from the dead the third day, was then seen of men, and went back up to heaven. Which also will change our lives and make us a new creature when we turn our heart to the Lord God, the Lord Jesus Christ and believe his word, the King james Version Holy Bible in English. Sincerely ;


Rain's Job Chapter 42 comment on 11/13/2013, 10:51am...

This is true You are tested by Satan everyday in life. But if you walk in faith like Job . God will show up on time and you will be blessed Just try the Lord it works. Job never gave up on the Lord . If you have just a ounce of a mustard seed he will never leave you are forsake you. I'm like Job at this time but I know my miracle is here! Thank you Lord! I've been beaten just like his son so I know how it feels in life!


Lynnette's Job Chapter 42 comment on 8/21/2013, 8:57pm...

I knw we hear this cliche " double for your trouble" ! But this is a clear example... A man who lived an absolute righteous life before The Lord! And was considered by God, and given to a whirlwind of obstacles, challenges, stresses, problems, etc. what his wife and friends failed to understand was that God orchestrated all of it!!! And therefore, God replaced everything the canker worm had eaten AND THEN SOME! It's never too late with God, Job was able to see his second set of off springs children's children's children's children! :D


Felicia Ofem's Job Chapter 42 comment on 2/27/2013, 3:53am...

Temptations and trials make us better than what we used to be, when we endure it with patience.


Brad Holland's Job Chapter 42 comment on 2/14/2013, 3:23am...

Jesus said, "woe unto the world because of offences, for it must be that offences will come, but woe unto the man by whom the offence comes." Eternity is a long life. I don't want to be Satan.
