1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was
perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
1:2 And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
1:3 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels,
and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great
household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.
1:4 And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and
sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.
1:5 And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that
Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered
burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be
that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.
1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before
the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
1:7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence come you? Then Satan answered the
LORD, and said, From going back and forth in the earth, and from walking up
and down in it.
1:8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that
there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that
fears God, and turns away from evil?
1:9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Does Job fear God for nothing?
1:10 Have not you made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about
all that he has on every side? you have blessed the work of his hands, and his
substance is increased in the land.
1:11 But put forth yours hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will
curse you to your face.
1:12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he has is in your power;
only upon himself put not forth yours hand. So Satan went forth from the presence
of the LORD.
1:13 And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and
drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:
1:14 And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing,
and the asses feeding beside them:
1:15 And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain
the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell
1:16 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire
of God is fallen from heaven, and has burned up the sheep, and the servants,
and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell you.
1:17 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans
made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away,
yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped
alone to tell you.
1:18 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Your sons
and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:
1:19 And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and stroke
the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are
dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell you.
1:20 Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down
upon the ground, and worshipped,
1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return
thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of
1:22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
