Job 42:12-17


42:12 So the Lord blessed the second part of Job’s life more than the first. He had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. 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. 42:17 And so Job died, old and full of days.

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.”
