Job’s Integrity in Suffering

2:7 So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord, and he afflicted20 Job with a malignant ulcer21 from the sole of his feet to the top of his head.22 2:8 Job took a shard of broken pottery to scrape23 himself24 with while he was sitting25 among the ashes.26

2:9 Then27 his wife said to him, “Are you still holding firmly to your integrity?28 Curse29 God, and die!”30 2:10 But he replied,31 “You’re talking like one of the godless32 women would do! Should we receive33 what is good from God, and not also34 receive35 what is evil?”36 In all this Job did not sin by what he said.37
