Book of Tobit

Chapter 9

8 …. Gabelus wept, and blessed God,

 

9 And said [to Tobias]: The God of Israel bless thee, because thou art the son of a very good and just man, and that feareth God, and doth almsdeeds:

 

10 And may a blessing come upon thy wife and upon your parents.

    

11 And may you see your children, and your children’s children, unto the third and fourth generation: and may your seed be blessed by the God of Israel, who reigneth for ever and ever.

Book of Job

Chapter 42

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.
