|Then Job, responding to the Lord, said:
|I know that you are able to do all things, and that no thoughts are hidden from you.
|So, who is it that would disguise a lack of knowledge as counsel? Therefore, I have been speaking foolishly, about things whose measure exceeds my knowledge.
|By paying attention with the ear, I have heard you, but now my eye sees you.
|Therefore, I find myself reprehensible, and I will do penance in embers and ashes.
|And the Lord blessed the latter end of Job even more than his beginning. And he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand pairs of oxen, and a thousand she-donkeys.
|And he had seven sons and three daughters.
|And he called the name of one, Daylight, and the name of the second, Cinnamon, and the name of the third, Horn of Cosmetics.
|And, in the whole world, there were not found women so beautiful as the daughters of Job. And so their father gave them an inheritance along with their brothers.
|But Job lived long after these events, for a hundred and forty years, and he saw his children, and his children’s children, all the way to the fourth generation, and he died an old man and full of days.
