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.
[for me anyway] he was injecting philosophy into a matter that excludes philosophy: only worldly, secular matters should be entered into a philosophical discussion, such as the serpent did with Eve, but not the things concerning God. God concluded that Jobs friends were wrong in all that they endeavored to reason, and that is where our view should also be, is with God.

"And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath."
(Job 42:7)
Note: Also in 42:8 God said that what they spoke of Him (God) was folly.
