61Now there was a day when the 2sons of Godcame to present themselves before the LORD, and aSatanalsocameamong them.
The LORDsaid to Satan, "From where do you come ?" Then Satananswered the LORD and said, "3From roamingabout on the earth and walkingaround on it."
The LORDsaid to Satan, "Have you bconsidered4My servantJob ? For there is noonelike him on the earth, 5a blameless and uprightman, cfearingGod and turningaway from evil."
Then 6Satananswered the dLORD, "Does JobfearGod for nothing ?
"7Have You not made a hedgeabout him and his house and all that he has, on everyside ? 8You have blessed the work of his hands, and his 9possessions have increased in the land.
"10But putforth Your handnow and 11touchall that he has; he will surelycurse You to Your face."
Then the LORDsaid to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your epower, only do not putforth your hand on him." So Satandeparted from the presence of the LORD.
