11Again there was a day when the sons of Godcame to present themselves before the LORD, and Satanalsocameamong them to present himself before the LORD.
The LORDsaid to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Then Satananswered the LORD and said, "From roamingabout on the earth and walkingaround on it."
The LORDsaid to Satan, "Have you aconsidered My servantJob? For there is noonelike him on the earth, a blameless and uprightmanbfearingGod and turningaway from evil. And he still2holdsfast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to cruin him withoutcause."
4Satananswered the LORD and said, "Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life.
"3However, putforth Your handnow, and 4touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face."
So the LORDsaid to Satan, "Behold, he is in your dpower, onlyspare his life."
