Satan Allowed to Test Job

13 Now on the day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house, 14 a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were plowing and the adonkeys feeding beside them, 15 and bthe 1Sabeans cattacked and took them. They also dslew the servants with the edge of the sword, and eI alone have escaped to tell you." 16 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "2The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you." 17 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "The 3Chaldeans formed three bands and made a raid on the camels and took them and fslew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you." 18 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house, 19 and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you." 20 Then Job arose and 4tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped. 21 He said, "5Naked I came from my mother's womb, And naked I shall return there. The 6LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD." 22 7Through all this Job did not sin nor did he gblame God.
