6 Now jthere was a day when kthe sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and †Satan came also †among them. 7 And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, lFrom going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8 And the Lord said unto Satan, †Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, ma perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9 Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10 Hast not thou nmade an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? othou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his ||substance pis increased in the land. 11 qBut put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, †and he will curse thee rto thy face. 12 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy †power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.
