Job 42:1-9View Full Chapter
Job 1Then Job replied to the LORD :
2“I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
3You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.
4“You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’
5My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.
6Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
Epilogue 7After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has. 8So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has.”
9So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job’s prayer.
