There was a manH376 in the landH776 of Uz,H5780 whose nameH8034 was Job;H347 and that manH376 was perfectH8535 and upright,H3477 and one that fearedH3373 God,H430 and eschewedH5493 evil.H7451
And there were bornH3205 to him sevenH7651 sonsH1121 and threeH7969 daughters.H1323
His substanceH4735 also was sevenH7651 thousandH505 sheep,H6629 and threeH7969 thousandH505 camels,H1581 and fiveH2568 hundredH3967 yokeH6776 of oxen,H1241 and fiveH2568 hundredH3967 she asses,H860 and a veryH3966 greatH7227 household;H5657 so that thisH1931 manH376 was the greatestH1419 of allH3605 the menH1121 of the east.H6924
And his sonsH1121 wentH1980 and feastedH6213 H4960 in their houses,H1004 everyH376 oneH376 his day;H3117 and sentH7971 and calledH7121 for their threeH7969 sistersH269 to eatH398 and to drinkH8354 with them.
And it was so, whenH3588 the daysH3117 of their feastingH4960 were goneH5362 about,H5362 that JobH347 sentH7971 and sanctifiedH6942 them, and roseH7925 up earlyH7925 in the morning,H1242 and offeredH5927 burntH5930 offerings according to the numberH4557 of them all:H3605 for JobH347 said,H559 It mayH194 be that my sonsH1121 have sinned,H2398 and cursedH1288 GodH430 in their hearts.H3824 ThusH3602 didH6213 JobH347 continually.H3605 H3117
Now there was a dayH3117 when the sonsH1121 of GodH430 cameH935 to presentH3320 themselves beforeH5921 the LORD,H3068 and SatanH7854 cameH935 alsoH1571 amongH8432 them.
And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Satan,H7854 From whereH370 comeH935 you? Then SatanH7854 answeredH6030 the LORD,H3068 and said,H559 From goingH7751 to and froH7751 in the earth,H776 and from walkingH1980 up and down in it.
And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Satan,H7854 Have you consideredH7760 H3820 my servantH5650 Job,H347 that there is noneH369 likeH3644 him in the earth,H776 a perfectH8535 and an uprightH3477 man,H376 one that fearsH3373 God,H430 and eschewsH5493 evil?H7451
Then SatanH7854 answeredH6030 the LORD,H3068 and said,H559 Does JobH347 fearH3372 GodH430 for nothing?H2600
Have not you made an hedgeH7753 aboutH1157 him, and aboutH1157 his house,H1004 and aboutH1157 allH3605 that he has on everyH5437 side?H5439 you have blessedH1288 the workH4639 of his hands,H3027 and his substanceH4735 is increasedH6555 in the land.H776
But putH7971 forthH7971 your handH3027 now,H4994 and touchH5060 allH3605 that he has, and he will curseH1288 you to your face.H6440
And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Satan,H7854 Behold,H2009 allH3605 that he has is in your power;H3027 onlyH7535 on himself putH7971 not forthH7971 your hand.H3027 So SatanH7854 wentH3318 forthH3318 from the presenceH6440 of the LORD.H3068
And there was a dayH3117 when his sonsH1121 and his daughtersH1323 were eatingH398 and drinkingH8354 wineH3196 in their oldestH1060 brother'sH251 house:H1004
And there cameH935 a messengerH4397 to Job,H347 and said,H559 The oxenH1241 were plowing,H2790 and the assesH860 feedingH7462 besideH5921 H3027 them:
And the SabeansH7614 fellH5307 on them, and tookH3947 them away; yes, they have slainH5221 the servantsH5288 with the edgeH6310 of the sword;H2719 and I onlyH7535 am escapedH4422 aloneH905 to tellH5046 you.
While he was yet speaking,H1696 there cameH935 also another,H2088 and said,H559 The fireH784 of GodH430 is fallenH5307 from heaven,H8064 and has burnedH1197 up the sheep,H6629 and the servants,H5288 and consumedH398 them; and I onlyH7535 am escapedH4422 aloneH905 to tellH5046 you.
While he was yet speaking,H1696 there cameH935 also another,H2088 and said,H559 The ChaldeansH3778 madeH7760 out threeH7969 bands,H7218 and fellH6584 on the camels,H1581 and have carriedH3947 them away, yes, and slainH5221 the servantsH5288 with the edgeH6310 of the sword;H2719 and I onlyH7535 am escapedH4422 aloneH905 to tellH5046 you.
While he was yet speaking,H1696 there cameH935 also another,H2088 and said,H559 Your sonsH1121 and your daughtersH1323 were eatingH398 and drinkingH8354 wineH3196 in their oldestH1060 brother'sH251 house:H1004
And, behold,H2009 there cameH935 a greatH1419 windH7307 from the wilderness,H4057 and smoteH5060 the fourH702 cornersH6438 of the house,H1004 and it fellH5307 on the youngH5288 men, and they are dead;H4191 and I onlyH7535 am escapedH4422 aloneH905 to tellH5046 you.
Then JobH347 arose,H6965 and rentH7167 his mantle,H4598 and shavedH1494 his head,H7218 and fellH5307 down on the ground,H776 and worshipped,H7812
And said,H559 NakedH6174 cameH3318 I out of my mother'sH517 womb,H990 and nakedH6174 shall I returnH7725 thither:H8033 the LORDH3068 gave,H5414 and the LORDH3068 has takenH3947 away; blessedH1288 be the nameH8034 of the LORD.H3068
In allH3605 thisH2063 JobH347 sinnedH2398 not, norH3808 chargedH5414 GodH430 foolishly.H8604
