So Satan a went out from the presence of the Lord, and inflicted loathsome sores on Job from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.
Job b took a potsherd with which to scrape himself, and sat among the ashes.
Then his wife said to him, "Do you still persist in your integrity? Curse c God, and die."
But he said to her, "You speak as any foolish woman would speak. Shall we receive the good at the hand of God, and not receive the bad?" In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
