Job 1


1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name [was] Job; and
 that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and
 shunned evil.
1:2 And there were born to him seven sons and three daughters.
1:3 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three
 thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five
 hundred she-asses, and a very great household; so that this man
 was the greatest of all the men of the east.
1:4 And his sons went and feasted [in their] houses, every one
 his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and
 to drink with them.
1:5 And it was so, when the days of [their] feasting were ended,
 that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose early in the
 morning, and offered burnt-offerings [according] to the number
 of them all; for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned,
 and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.
1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present
 themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
1:7 And the LORD said to Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan
 answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro on the
 earth, and from walking up and down upon it.
1:8 And the LORD said to Satan, Hast thou considered my servant
 Job, that [there is] none like him on the earth, a perfect and
 an upright man, one that feareth God, and shunneth evil?
1:9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God
 for naught?
1:10 Hast not thou made a hedge about him, and about his house,
 and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the
 work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
1:11 But put forth thy hand now, and touch all that he hath, and
 he will curse thee to thy face.
1:12 And the LORD said to Satan, Behold, all that he hath [is]
 in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thy hand. So
 Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.
1:13 And there was a day when his sons and his daughters [were]
 eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:
1:14 And there came a messenger to Job, and said, The oxen were
 plowing, and the asses feeding beside them:
1:15 And the Sabeans fell [upon them], and took them away; yes,
 they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I
 only have escaped alone to tell thee.
1:16 While he [was] yet speaking, there came also another, and
 said, The fire of God hath fallen from heaven, and hath burned
 up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them; and I only
 have escaped alone to tell thee.
1:17 While he [was] yet speaking, there came also another, and
 said, The Chaldeans made three bands, and fell upon the camels,
 and have carried them away, yes, and slain the servants with
 the edge of the sword; and I only have escaped alone to tell
 thee.
1:18 While he [was] yet speaking, there came also another, and
 said, Thy sons and thy daughters [were] eating and drinking
 wine in their eldest brother's house:
1:19 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 only have escaped alone to
 tell thee.
1:20 Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head,
 and fell upon the ground, and worshiped,
1:21 And said, Naked came I from my mother's womb, and naked
 shall I return thither: The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken
 away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
1:22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
