Job and his Sons and Daughters

I reading Job in a bible reading plan an come across the verse below which really caught my attention.  I have a few questions that I am asking about this passage and they are the following:

  • Why was the verse included in the story of Job? 
  • What are the principles been communicated?
  • How doe we apply these principles in our context today?
  • What does this story tell us about the character of Job the man?
  • Does this story have anything to do with the division of inheritance in our context?
 
God blessed Job’s later life even more than his earlier life. He ended up with fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand teams of oxen, and one thousand donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters. He named the first daughter Dove, the second, Cinnamon, and the third, Darkeyes. There was not a woman in that country as beautiful as Job’s daughters. Their father treated them as equals with their brothers, providing the same inheritance. (Job 42:12-15. The Message)
 
If you are able to give some insights into the above passage I would appreciate it.  Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think.
