Job 1:10-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
10 "Have you not put a hedge1 around him and his household and everything he has?2 You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.3 11 But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has,4 and he will surely curse you to your face."5 12 The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he has6 is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger."7 Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD. 13 One day when Job's sons and daughters8 were feasting9 and drinking wine at the oldest brother's house, 14 a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing10 nearby, 15 and the Sabeans11 attacked and carried them off. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!" 16 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, "The fire of God fell from the sky12 and burned up the sheep and the servants,13 and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!" 17 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, "The Chaldeans14 formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and carried them off. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!" 18 While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, "Your sons and daughters15 were feasting16 and drinking wine at the oldest brother's house, 19 when suddenly a mighty wind17 swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead,18 and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!19" 20 At this, Job got up and tore his robe20 and shaved his head.21 Then he fell to the ground in worship22
