Satan Attacks Job’s Character

Now gthere was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and 5Satan also came among them. And the Lord said to 6Satan, “From where do you come?”

So Satan answered the Lord and said, “From hgoing to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”

Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you 7considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and 8shuns evil?”

So Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 iHave You not 9made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? jYou have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 kBut now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely lcurse 1You to Your face!”

12 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your 2power; only do not lay a hand on his person.”

So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.
