Job 2:1-6 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 One day when the angels came to report to God, Satan also showed up. 2 God singled out Satan, saying, "And what have you been up to?" Satan answered God, "Oh, going here and there, checking things out." 3 Then God said to Satan, "Have you noticed my friend Job? There's no one quite like him, is there - honest and true to his word, totally devoted to God and hating evil? He still has a firm grip on his integrity! You tried to trick me into destroying him, but it didn't work." 4 Satan answered, "A human would do anything to save his life. 5 But what do you think would happen if you reached down and took away his health? He'd curse you to your face, that's what." 6 God said, "All right. Go ahead - you can do what you like with him. But mind you, don't kill him."
