The Adversary’s Attack on Job’s Possessions

13 And then [there] was one day whena his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their firstborn brother's house. 14 And a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were plowing, and the female donkeys were feeding {beside them}.b 15 Thenc the Sabeans {attacked},d and they took them, and they slew the servants {by the edge of the sword}.e Butf I escaped, [even] I alone, to tell you." 16 While this one was still speaking, {another}g came and said, "The fire of God fell from the heavens, and it blazed up against the sheep and goats and against the servants, and it consumed them. But I escaped, [even] I alone, to tell you." 17 While this one was still speaking, {another}h came and said, "The Chaldeans formed three divisions, and they made a raid on the camels, and they carried them away, and they struck your servants {by the edge of the sword},i but I escaped, [even] I alone, to tell you." 18 At the timej this one was speaking, {another}k came and said, "Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their firstborn brother's house. 19 And behold,l a great wind came from across the desert, and it struck the four corners of the house {so that}m it fell upon the young people, and they died. But I escaped, [even] I alone, to tell you." 20 Thenn Job arose and tore his outer garmento and shaved his head; {then}p he fell upon the ground and he worshiped. 21 Thenq he said, "Naked I came out from my mother's womb, and naked I will return there. Yahweh gives, and Yahweh takes. Let Yahweh's name be blessed." 22 In all this, Job did not sin and did not {charge God with wrongdoing}.r
