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.

This means the ability to commune with your creator.


Rachel Sears's Job Chapter 42 comment about verse 3 on 5/31/2015, 6:06pm...

Sermon note I heard. "When you compare yourself to others, you may look pretty good, even righteous. Compare yourself to God. " God 's plan is perfect even when He tests us and we do not understand His thoughts.


Kelly's Job Chapter 42 comment about verse 3 on 5/16/2015, 4:26pm...

We cannot fully understand God . We can read and study the Bible, the book of guidance he has given us , it is all we need to know. But we cannot as mortal beings of the sinful flesh, fully understand the marvelous divine Creator.


Mitchell Nelson's Job Chapter 42 comment on 5/06/2015, 10:36am...

i think that the 42nd chapter of Job shows us the true love of God. He honored Job for his faithfulness in yime of tribulation. Though all he had was taken, family, posessions, etc., Job kept his integrity with God, and God rewarded him with 10 new sons and daughters, twice the posessions as before, his family came back, and he was awarded the priviledge to pray for his comforters "for him will I accept. " I think that this book was written for us today to give us the strength to stand in trying times, knowing that God is going to work out our every situation in life if we only trust in Him,


Darren's Job Chapter 42 comment about verse 1 on 10/27/2014, 6:20pm...

Job realized that God is still in control and to wise to make an mistake and too loving to turn his back on him. Job repented for his complaint towards God, prayed for his friends and God turned every thing around and added double for what he lost. God is in control

Restrained everything he had.


Dal's Job Chapter 42 comment on 7/16/2014, 1:16pm...

The great truth of this book is that it disputes and corrects the idea prosperity ideology.God owes us nothing for our faith and hope in him but we owe him everything for his love for us in Christ Jesus.God said Job was perfect and upright and God cannot lie.He was perfected through his faith in The Redeemer that was yet to come but Job knew still lived.We are no different.Jesus our high priest makes intersession for us when the devil comes to accuse us as he did Job.For our sake God tests us to make us see our utter dependence upon him.Sometimes our lives are not long enough to see the restoration that Job saw but God is faithful to restore all and bless us in eternity.Remember the man born blind that Jesus healed.The disciples asked who sinned,this man or his parents?Jesus replied neither but that the power of God should be revealed.We should be oh so ready to comfort our brothers and sisters in Christ when they are afflicted and in temptation because of pain or illness or grief.We should be like Jesus himself who though he was God,wept in his grief.I thank You now Heavenly Father for the wounds that heal.


Margaret's Job Chapter 42 comment on 7/11/2014, 10:11pm...

God is our creator. God knows all things. Nothing is hid from the Lord our God our Everlasting King. God is mighty in strength and wisdom. God is just and his judgment is right. With the grace and mercy of God we always obey and serve God in the Spirit. Blessed be God for his loving kindness, tender mercy and peace. We give thanks to Almighty God for all things in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
