Job: Release from shame (part 4 of 4)
~God restores the upright!~

Psalm 25:15 NIV ~ My eyes are ever on the Lord,
for only he will release my feet from the snare.

Job 42:7-11 - After the Lord had said
these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and
your two friends, because you have not spoken the truth about me, as my
servant Job has. So now take seven bulls and
seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for
yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and
not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken the truth
about me, as my servant Job has.” So Eliphaz the
Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what
the Lord told them; and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer. 10 After
Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his
fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had beore. 11 All
his brothers and sisters and everyone who had known him before came and
ate with him in his house. They comforted and consoled him over all the trouble
the Lord had brought on him, and each one gave him a piece of
silver[
a] and a gold ring.

12 The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more
than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a
thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. 13 And
he also had seven sons and three daughters. 14 The
first daughter he named Jemimah, the
second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch. 15 Nowhere
in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and
their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers. 
16 After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his
children and their children to the fourth generation. 17 And
so Job died, an old man and full of years.
