Job 2

RHE 1 And it came to pass, when on a certain day the sons of God came, and stood before the Lord, and Satan came amongst them, and stood in his sight, 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. RHE 2 That the Lord said to Satan: Whence comest thou? And he answered, and said: I have gone round about the earth, and walked through 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.” RHE 3 And the Lord said to Satan: Hast thou considered my servant, Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a man simple and upright, and fearing God, and avoiding evil, and still keeping his innocence? But thou hast moved me against him, that I should afflict him 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.” RHE 4 And Satan answered, and said: Skin for skin; and all that a man hath, he will give for his life: NIV 4 “Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give all he has for his own life. RHE 5 But put forth thy hand, and touch his bone and his flesh, and then thou shalt see that he will bless thee to thy face. NIV 5 But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.” RHE 6 And the Lord said to Satan: Behold, he is in thy hand, but yet save his life. NIV 6 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.” RHE 7 So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord, and struck Job with a very grievous ulcer, from the sole of the foot even to the top 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. RHE 8 And he took a potsherd and scraped the corrupt matter, sitting on a dunghill. NIV 8 Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes. RHE 9 And his wife said to him: Dost thou still continue in thy simplicity? bless God and die. NIV 9 His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!” RHE 10 And he said to her: Thou hast spoken like one of the foolish women: If we have received good things at the hand of God, why should we not receive evil? In all these things 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. RHE 11 Now when Job’s three friends heard all the evil that had befallen him, they came every one from his own place, Eliphaz, the Themanite, and Baldad, the Suhite, and Sophar, the Naamathite. For they had made an appointment to come together and visit him, and 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. RHE 12 And when they had lifted up their eyes afar off, they knew him not, and crying out, they wept, and rending their garments, they sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven. 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. RHE 13 And they sat with him on the ground seven day and seven nights and no man spoke to him a word: for they saw that his grief 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.
