Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the LORD.
And the LORD said to Satan, "Whence have you come?" Satan answered the LORD, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it."
And the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil? He still holds fast his integrity, although you moved me against him, to destroy him without cause."
Then Satan answered the LORD, "Skin for skin! All that a man has he will give for his life.
But put forth thy hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face."
And the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, he is in your power; only spare his life."
