Job – End Better than Beginning

The later part of Job’s life was better than the beginning. The Lord severely tested Job, and Job came through. 

Job persevered until he saw the Lord, and when he saw the Lord he repented in dust and ashes. And the Lord blessed him.

Job was blessed in his later years:

The LORD blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part.

Job had twice as much as he had before:

He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. 

The job had ten children before his trial, and ten children after his trial.  Job’s family life was restored to him.

And he also had seven sons and three daughters.

Job had three daughters. They are named in the Bible.

The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch.

Job’s daughter’s beauty is noted.

Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters,

Not only did Job pass on an inheritance to his sons, but he also passed on his inheritance to his daughters:

and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers. 

Job’s life was extended:

After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years;

Job’s saw his family grow:

He saw his children and their children to the fourth generation.

Job lived a full life.   The Bible says he was old and full of years

And so Job died, an old man and full of years.

Job 42:13-17
