First Reading - Job Jb 42:1-3, 5-6, 12-17

1Then Job answered the Lord, and said:
2I know that thou canst do all things, and no thought is hid from thee.
3Who is this that hideth counsel without knowledge? Therefore I have spoken unwisely, and things that above measure exceeded my knowledge.
5With the hearing of the ear, I have heard thee, but now my eye seeth thee.
6Therefore I reprehend myself, and do penance in dust and ashes.
12And the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning. And he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
13And he had seven sons, and three daughters.
14And he called the names of one Dies, and the name of the second Cassia, and the name of the third Cornustibil.
15And there were not found in all the earth women so beautiful as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
16And Job lived after these things, a hundred and forty years, and he saw his children, and his children's children, unto the fourth generation, and he died an old man, and full of days.
