A Prayer of Blessing

9 Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him “Jabez,” saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.”

10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel,

“Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory!
Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.”

And God granted his request.

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 (New International Version)
