Again there was a day when the sons of Godcame to present themselves before the LORD, and Satancame also among them to present himself before the LORD.2
And the LORDsaid unto Satan, From whencecomest thou? And Satananswered the LORD, and said , From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
And the LORDsaid unto Satan, Hast thouconsidered my servantJob, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an uprightman, one that fearethGod, and eschewethevil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroya him without cause.4
And Satananswered the LORD, and said , Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.5But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.6
And the LORDsaid unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.
