View In My Bible
6 1Now there was a day when the 2sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and aSatan also came among them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come ?" Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "3From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it." 8 The LORD said to Satan, "Have you bconsidered 4My servant Job ? For there is no one like him on the earth, 5a blameless and upright man, cfearing God and turning away from evil." 9 Then 6Satan answered the dLORD, "Does Job fear God for nothing ? 10 "7Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side ? 8You have blessed the work of his hands, and his 9possessions have increased in the land. 11 "10But put forth Your hand now and 11touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face." 12 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your epower, only do not put forth your hand on him." So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD.

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 fdonkeys feeding beside them, 15 and gthe 12Sabeans hattacked and took them. They also islew the servants with the edge of the sword, and jI alone have escaped to tell you." 16 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "13The 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 14Chaldeans formed three bands and made a raid on the camels and took them and kslew 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 15tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped. 21 He said, "16Naked I came from my mother's womb, And naked I shall return there. The 17LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD." 22 18Through all this Job did not sin nor did he lblame God.
