Job 2

LEB 1 {And then} one day the sons of God came to present themselves before Yahweh, and Satan also came into their midst to present himself before Yahweh. NIV 1 On another day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them to present himself before him. LEB 2 So Yahweh {asked} Satan, "From where have you come?" And Satan<note: Hebrew "the accuser," or "the adversary"> answered Yahweh and said, "From roaming on the earth and from walking about in it." NIV 2 And 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.” LEB 3 So Yahweh {asked} Satan, "Have you {considered} my servant Job? Indeed, there is no one like him on the earth--a blameless man and upright and God-fearing and turning away from evil. And still he persists in his blamelessness {even though} you incited me against him to destroy him for nothing." NIV 3 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. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.” LEB 4 Then Satan answered him and said, "Skin for skin! All that {that} man has he will give for his life. NIV 4 “Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give all he has for his own life. LEB 5 But stretch out your hand and touch his bones and his flesh, [and see] {whether} he will {curse} you to your face." NIV 5 But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.” LEB 6 So Yahweh said to Satan, "{All right}, he [is] in your {power}. Only spare his life." NIV 6 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.” LEB 7 So Satan went out from {Yahweh's presence}, and he inflicted Job with loathsome skin sores from the sole of his foot up to the crown of his head. NIV 7 So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head. LEB 8 {So} he took for himself a potsherd with which to scrape himself, and he sat in the midst of the ashes. NIV 8 Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes. LEB 9 Then his wife said to him, "Are you still persisting in your blamelessness? {Curse} God and die." NIV 9 His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!” LEB 10 So he said to her, "You speak like one of the foolish women speaks. Indeed, should we receive the good from God, but not receive the evil?" In all this, Job did not sin with his lips. NIV 10 He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said. LEB 11 Thus Job's three friends heard of this calamity that had come upon him. So each set out from his [own] place: Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite. And they met together to come to console him and to comfort him. NIV 11 When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him. LEB 12 Thus they lifted up their eyes from afar, but they did not recognize him, so they raised their voice, and they wept, and each man tore his outer garment and threw dust on their heads {toward the sky}. NIV 12 When they saw him from a distance, they could hardly recognize him; they began to weep aloud, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads. LEB 13 Then they sat with him on the ground [for] seven days and seven nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that {his} suffering was very great. NIV 13 Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was.
