约伯记 42 – CCB & KJV

Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

约伯记 42:1-17

1约伯回答耶和华说:

2“我知道你无所不能,

你的旨意无不成就。

3你问,‘谁用无知的话使我的旨意晦暗不明?’

诚然,我对自己所谈论的事一无所知,

这些事太奇妙,我无法明白。

4你说,‘你且听着,我要发言。

我来提问,你来回答。’

5我从前风闻有你,

现在亲眼看见你。

6因此我厌恶自己,

在尘土和炉灰中忏悔。”

结语

7耶和华对约伯说完这些话后,就对提幔以利法说:“你和你的两个朋友令我愤怒,因为你们对我的议论不如我仆人约伯说的有理。 8现在你们要取七头公牛和七只公羊,到我仆人约伯那里,为自己献上燔祭,因为你们对我的议论不如我仆人约伯说的有理。我仆人约伯会为你们祷告,我会悦纳他的祷告,不按你们的愚妄惩罚你们。” 9于是,提幔以利法书亚比勒达拿玛琐法遵命而行,耶和华悦纳了约伯的祷告。

10约伯为朋友们祷告后,耶和华恢复了他以前的昌盛,并且耶和华赐给他的比以前多一倍。 11约伯的兄弟姊妹和从前的朋友都来探望他,在他家里一同吃饭,为他遭受耶和华所降的种种灾难而安抚、慰问他。他们每人送他一块银子和一个金环。

12耶和华赐给约伯晚年的福分比起初更多:他有一万四千只羊、六千只骆驼、一千对牛和一千头母驴。 13他还有七个儿子和三个女儿。 14他给长女取名叫耶米玛、次女叫基洗亚、三女叫基连·哈朴15那地方找不到像约伯三个女儿那样美丽的女子。约伯让她们与弟兄一同承受产业。 16此后,约伯又活了一百四十年,得见四代子孙。 17约伯年纪老迈,寿终正寝。

King James Version

Job 42:1-17

1Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 2I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.42.2 no thought can be…: or, no thought of thine can be hindered 3Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. 4Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 5I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. 6Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

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 right, as my servant Job hath. 8Therefore 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.42.8 him: Heb. his face, or, person 9So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the LORD commanded them: the LORD also accepted Job.42.9 Job: Heb. the face of Job

10And 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.42.10 gave…: Heb. added all that had been to Job unto the double 11Then 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. 12So 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. 13He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch. 15And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. 16After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations. 17So Job died, being old and full of days.
