View Job 42 in the note window.

42:2 I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no a thought can be withholden from thee.

    (a) No thought so secret but you see it, nor anything that you think but that you can bring it to pass.
42:3 Who [is] he that hideth counsel without b knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, c which I knew not.
    (b) Is there any but I? for this God laid to his charge, (Job 38:2).
    (c) I confess in this my ignorance, and that I spoke of what I did not know.
42:4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, d and declare thou unto me.
    (d) He shows that he will be God's scholar to learn of him.
42:5 I have e heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
    (e) I knew you only before by hearsay, but now you have caused me to feel what you are to me, that I may resign myself over to you.
42:7 And it was [so], that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me [the thing that is] f right, as my servant g Job [hath].
    (f) You took in hand an evil cause, in that you condemned him by his outward afflictions, and not comforted him with my mercies.
    (g) Who had a good cause, but handled it evil.
42:8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall h pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you [after your] folly, in that ye have not spoken of me [the thing which is] right, like my servant Job.
    (h) When you have reconciled yourselves to him for the faults that you have committed against him, he will pray for you, and I will hear him.

42:10 And the LORD turned the i captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

    (i) He delivered him out of the affliction he was in.
42:11 Then came there unto him all his k brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.
    (k) That is, all his kindred, read (Job 19:13).
42:12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had l fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
    (l) God made him twice as rich in cattle as he was before, and gave him as many children as he had taken from him.
42:14 And he called the name of the first, m Jemima; and the name of the second, n Kezia; and the name of the third, o Kerenhappuch.
    (m) That is, of long life, or beautiful as the day.
    (n) As pleasant as cassia or sweet spice.
    (o) That is, the horn of beauty.
