|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Job was a man who lived in Uz. He was honest inside and out, a man of his word, who was totally devoted to God and hated evil with a passion.
1 In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.
