1Now there was a day when the 2sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.
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."
The LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered 4My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, 5a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil."
Then 6Satan answered the LORD, "Does Job fear God for nothing?
"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.
"10But put forth Your hand now and 11touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face."
Then the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him." So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD.
