42:13 And he also had seven sons 1 and three daughters. 42:14 The first daughter he named Jemimah, 2 the second Keziah, 3 and the third Keren-Happuch. 4 42:15 Nowhere in all the land could women be found who were as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance alongside their brothers.
42:16 After this Job lived 140 years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation.
1 tn The word for “seven” is spelled in an unusual way. From this some have thought it means “twice seven,” or fourteen sons. Several commentators take this view; but it is probably not warranted.
2 sn The Hebrew name Jemimah means “dove.”
3 sn The Hebrew name Keziah means “cassia.”
4 sn The Hebrew name Keren-Happuch means “horn of eye-paint.”
