10 (A)And the Lord [a]restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job (B)twice as much as he had before. 11 Then (C)all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the Lord had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.
