Job 1

JUB 1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name <em>was</em> Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God and departed from evil. NIV 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. JUB 2 And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. NIV 2 He had seven sons and three daughters, JUB 3 His substance was seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred she asses, and a very great store of servants, so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east. NIV 3 and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East. JUB 4 And his sons went and had banquets <em>in their</em> houses, each one on his day, and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. NIV 4 His sons used to hold feasts in their homes on their birthdays, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. JUB 5 And it was so, when the days of <em>their</em> banquets were over, that Job sent and sanctified them and rose up early in the morning and offered burnt offerings <em>according</em> to the number of them all; for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned and blasphemed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. NIV 5 When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, “Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular custom. JUB 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. NIV 6 One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them. JUB 7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Where dost thou come from? Then Satan answered the LORD and said, From going to and fro in the earth and from walking up and down in it. NIV 7 The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.” JUB 8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my slave Job, that <em>there is</em> none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God and has departed from evil? NIV 8 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” JUB 9 Then Satan answered the LORD and said, Does Job fear God for nothing? NIV 9 “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. JUB 10 Hast thou not made a hedge about him and about his house and about all that he has on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands; therefore, his substance has increased in the land. NIV 10 “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. JUB 11 But put forth thy hand now and touch all that he has, <em>and thou shalt see</em> if he will not blaspheme thee to thy face. NIV 11 But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.” JUB 12 And the LORD said to Satan, Behold, all that he has <em>is</em> in thy power; only upon himself do not put forth thy hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD. NIV 12 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD. JUB 13 And there was a day when his sons and his daughters <em>were</em> eating and drinking wine in the house of their brother, the firstborn; NIV 13 One day when Job’s sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, JUB 14 and a messenger came unto Job and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them; NIV 14 a messenger came to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby, JUB 15 and the Sabeans {Heb. those of Sheba} fell <em>upon them</em> and took them away; they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell thee. NIV 15 and the Sabeans attacked and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” JUB 16 While he <em>was</em> yet speaking, another came who said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven and has burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them; and I alone have escaped to tell thee. NIV 16 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The fire of God fell from the heavens and burned up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” JUB 17 While he <em>was</em> yet speaking, another came and said, The Chaldeans made three bands and fell upon the camels and have carried them away and have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell thee. NIV 17 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The Chaldeans formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” JUB 18 While he <em>was</em> yet speaking, there another came and said, Thy sons and thy daughters <em>were</em> eating and drinking wine in the house of their brother, the firstborn; NIV 18 While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, JUB 19 and, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I alone have escaped to tell thee. NIV 19 when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” JUB 20 Then Job arose and rent his mantle and shaved his head and fell down upon the ground and worshipped NIV 20 At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship JUB 21 and said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. NIV 21 and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart.The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.” JUB 22 In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with folly. NIV 22 In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.
