So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the top of his head.1
Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes.2
His wife said to him, "Are you still holding on to your integrity?3 Curse God and die!"4
He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?"5 In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.6
