Satan Allowed to Test Job

13 Now on the day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

14 a messenger came to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the 1donkeys feeding beside them,

15 and 1the aSabeans 2attacked and took them. They also 3slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and 4I alone have escaped to tell you.”

16 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “aThe fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

17 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The aChaldeans formed three bands and made a raid on the camels and took them and 1slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

18 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

19 and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

20 Then Job arose and atore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped.
