Job Loses His Health

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.

2 The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

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.”

4 Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life.

5 “aHowever, put forth Your hand now, and btouch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face.”

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.

9 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!”

10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. aShall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” bIn all this Job did not sin with his lips.
