Job 2

LXX 1 And it came to pass on a certain day, that the angels of God came to stand before the Lord, and the devil came among them to stand before the Lord. 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. LXX 2 And the Lord, said to the devil, Whence comest thou? Then the devil said before the Lord, I am come from going through the world, and walking about the whole earth. 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.” LXX 3 And the Lord said to the devil, Hast thou then observed my servant Job, that there is none of upon the earth like him, a harmless, true, blameless, godly man, abstaining from all evil? and he yet cleaves to innocence, whereas thou has told to destroy his substance without cause? 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.” LXX 4 And the devil answered and said to the Lord, Skin for skin, all that a man has will he give as a ransom for his life. NIV 4 “Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give all he has for his own life. LXX 5 Nay, but put forth thine hand, and touch his bones and his flesh: verily he will bless thee to face. NIV 5 But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.” LXX 6 And the Lord said to the devil, Behold, I deliver him up to thee; only save his life. NIV 6 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.” LXX 7 So the devil went out from the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from feet to 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. LXX 8 And he took a potsherd to scrape away the discharge, and sat upon a dung-heap outside the city. NIV 8 Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes. LXX 9 And when much time had passed, his wife said to him, How long wilt thou hold out, saying, Behold, I wait yet a little while, expecting the hope of my deliverance? for, behold, thy memorial is abolished from the earth, sons and daughters, the pangs and pains of my womb which I bore in vain with sorrows; and thou thyself sittest down to spend the nights in the open air among the corruption of worms, and I am a wanderer and a servant from place to place and house to house, waiting for the setting of the sun, that I may rest from my labours and my pangs which now beset me: but say some word against the Lord, and die. NIV 9 His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!” LXX 10 But he looked on her, and said to her, Thou hast spoken like one of the foolish women. If we have received good things of the hand of the Lord, shall we not endure evil things? In all these things that happened to him, Job sinned not at all with his lips before God. 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. LXX 11 Now his three friends having heard of all the evil that was come upon him, came to him each from his own country: Eliphaz the king of the Thaemans, Baldad sovereign of the Saucheans, Sophar king of he Minaeans: and they came to him with one accord, to comfort and to visit 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. LXX 12 And when they saw him from a distance they did not know him; and they cried with a loud voice, and wept, and rent every one his garment, and sprinkled dust upon , 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. LXX 13 and they sat down beside him seven days and seven nights, and no one of them spoke; for they saw that his affliction was dreadful and 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.
