Job’s Second Test

2One day the members of the heavenly court came again to present themselves before the LORD, and the Accuser, Satan, came with them.H3117H1121H430H935H3320H3068H7854H935H8432H3320H3068 2"Where have you come from?" the LORD asked Satan. Satan answered the LORD, "I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that's going on."H3068H559H7854H335H935H7854H6030H3068H559H7751H776H1980 3Then the LORD asked Satan, "Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil. And he has maintained his integrity, even though you urged me to harm him without cause."H3068H559H7854H7760H3820H5650H347H776H8535H3477H376H3373H430H5493H7451H2388H8538H5496H1104H2600 4Satan replied to the LORD, "Skin for skin! A man will give up everything he has to save his life.H7854H6030H3068H559H5785H5785H376H5414H5315 5But reach out and take away his health, and he will surely curse you to your face!"H199H7971H3027H5060H6106H1320H1288H6440 6"All right, do with him as you please," the LORD said to Satan. "But spare his life."H3068H559H7854H3027H8104H5315 7So Satan left the LORD's presence, and he struck Job with terrible boils from head to foot.H3318H7854H3318H6440H3068H5221H347H7451H7822H3709H7272H6936 8Job scraped his skin with a piece of broken pottery as he sat among the ashes.H3947H2789H1623H3427H8432H665 9His wife said to him, "Are you still trying to maintain your integrity? Curse God and die."H559H802H2388H8538H1288H430H4191 10But Job replied, "You talk like a foolish woman. Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?" So in all this, Job said nothing wrong.H559H1696H259H5036H1696H1571H6901H2896H430H6901H7451H347H2398H8193

Job’s Three Friends Share His Anguish

11When three of Job's friends heard of the tragedy he had suffered, they got together and traveled from their homes to comfort and console him. Their names were Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite.H347H7969H7453H8085H7451H935H935H376H4725H464H8489H1085H7747H6691H5284H3259H3162H935H5110H5162 12When they saw Job from a distance, they scarcely recognized him. Wailing loudly, they tore their robes and threw dust into the air over their heads to show their grief.H5375H5869H7350H5234H5375H6963H1058H7167H376H4598H2236H6083H7218H8064 13Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and nights. No one said a word to Job, for they saw that his suffering was too great for words.H3427H776H7651H3117H7651H3915H1696H1697H7200H3511H3966H1431
