6 If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
7 Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
6 if you are so honest and pure,
then God will come and help you
and restore your household as your reward.
7 All the wealth you lost will be nothing
compared with what God will give you then.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
6 He was letting him know that if he had not sinned against God then he would take care of him, there is some truth to this but we have to remember God’s see things eternally and not as we do so for Him to take care of us means that the now is bad but eternity is good us being with Him. Job would have his things restored to him, this does not mean everyone who suffers a lose will regain things by coming to the Lord, the things Job lost may have kept him from serving the Lord as effective as he could have.
7 What God gave us was His Son to die in our place for our sins this is worth more than anything we could gain, God would give Job back more then what he lost, the blessings were more then the lose.
