1 aAgain there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord.
3 The Lord said to Satan, “Have you 1considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man 2fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still aholds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to 3ruin him without cause.”
6 So the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your 1power, only spare his life.”
7 Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and smote Job with asore boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.
8 And he took a potsherd to scrape himself while ahe was sitting among the ashes.
