Job 1:5-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
5 When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would send and have them purified.1 Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering2 for each of them, thinking, "Perhaps my children have sinned3 and cursed God4 in their hearts." This was Job's regular custom.

Job's First Test

6 One day the angelsa5 came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satanb6 also came with them.7 7 The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."8 8 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job?9 There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God10 and shuns evil."11 9 "Does Job fear God for nothing?"12 Satan replied.
