Job Loses His Health

1 1Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the LORD.
2 The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it."
3 The LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered * * My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still 2holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause."
4 Satan answered the LORD and said, "Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life.
5 "3However, put forth Your hand now, and 4touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face."
6 So the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, he is in your power, only spare his life."
