1 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and
that no thought can be withholden from thee.
Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered
that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare
thou unto me.
Job said to God,
You can do anything and can read everyone's mind. 
I have heard of thee by
the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
I've heard you speak before, but now I can see you. 
Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
So I hate myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
Job's friends sacrifice animals for God
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
right, as my servant Job hath.
Then God said to Eliphaz and his friends,
I'm mad at you for not speaking well enought of me, as Job has. 
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 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.
So take seven bullocks and seven rams and offer them to me as a burnt offering.
Job will pray for you, and I'll accept your offerings.
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
So Eiphaz, Bildad, and Zophar sacrificed the animals and God accespted Job.
God gives Job twice as much stuff as he had before
(With even prettier daughters!)
And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends:
also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
God gave Job twice as much as he had before
Then came there unto him all his 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.
All of Job's friends and relatives ate dinner with him, and comforted him from all the evil that God did
to him. [4
So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he
had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of
oxen, and a thousand she asses.
God gave twice as many animals has he had before: 14,000 sheep, 6000 camels, 1000 oxen, and 1000 female donkeys.
He had also seven sons and three daughters.
And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second,
Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.
He also had seven sons and three daughters [5
], whose names were Jemima, Keziad, Kerenhappuch.
And in all the land were no women found
so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
They were the prettiest women in all the land. [6
16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years,
and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.
So Job died, being old and full of days.
Job lived 140 years and died.
- I know that thou canst do every thing and that no thought can be withholden from thee.
Can God do anything?
Does God know everything?
- I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. (v.5)
Can God be seen?
- The LORD said to Elipha ... My wrath is kindled against thee. (v.)
Eliphaz and his friends spent many chapters defending God and blaming Job. Job defended himself,
while saying nothing good about God, except that he could do everying and read people's minds. So what was God mad at
- All the evil that the LORD had brought upon him (v.11)
Did God or Satan bring evil to Job?
What the Bible says about Evil
- He had also seven sons and three daughters. (v.13)
God and Satan killed Job's first set of kids (DWB). He replaced them with ten more, seven
sons and three daughters, just like the originals. The Bible doesn't explain why God didn't give Job twice as many
children, like he did with his animals. And it says nothing about his wife (who in 2:9
said he should curse God and die). Was she still around? Or did God replace her with a newer, prettier wife? And,
lastly, were Job's new children made in the usual way? And if so, who was their mom?
- In all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job (v15)
Job's three new daughters were even prettier that his original ones! The new ones even had names: Jemima,
