1 There was a man in the land of Hus, whose name was Job, and that man was simple and upright, and fearing God, and avoiding evil. 2 And there were born to him seven sons and three daughters. 3 And his possession was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a family exceedingly great: and this man was great among all the people of the east. 4 And his sons went, and made a feast by houses, every one in his day. And sending, they called their three sisters, to eat and drink with them. 5 And when the days of their feasting were gone about, Job sent to them, and sanctified them: and rising up early, offered holocausts for every one of them. For he said: Lest perhaps my sons have sinned, and have blessed God in their hearts. So did Job all days. 6 Now on a certain day, when the sons of God came to stand before the Lord, Satan also was present among them. 7 And the Lord said to him: Whence comest thou? And he answered and said: I have gone round about the earth, and walked through it. 8 And the Lord said to him: Hast thou considered my servant, Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a simple and upright man, and fearing God, and avoiding evil? 9 And Satan answering, said: Doth Job fear God in vain? 10 Hast thou not made a fence for him, and his house, and all his substance round about, blessed the works of his hands, and his possession hath increased on the earth? 11 But stretch forth thy hand a little, and touch all that he hath, and see if he bless thee not to thy face. 12 Then the Lord said to Satan: Behold, all that he hath is in thy hand: only put not forth thy hand upon his person. And Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord. 13 Now upon a certain day, when his sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine, in the house of their eldest brother, 14 There came a messenger to Job, and said: The oxen were ploughing, and the asses feeding beside them, 15 And the Sabeans rushed in, and took all away, and slew the servants with the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell thee. 16 And while he was yet speaking, another came, and said: The fire of God fell from heaven, and striking the sheep and the servants, hath consumed them; and I alone have escaped to tell thee. 17 And while he also was yet speaking, there came another, and said: The Chaldeans made three troops, and have fallen upon the camels, and taken them; moreover, they have slain the servants with the sword: and I alone have escaped to tell thee. 18 He was yet speaking, and behold another came in, and said: Thy sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in the house of their eldest brother, 19 A violent wind came on a sudden from the side of the desert, and shook the four corners of the house, and it fell upon thy children, and they are dead: and I alone have escaped to tell thee. 20 Then Job rose up, and rent his garments, and having shaven his head, fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, 21 And said: Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away: as it hath pleased the Lord, so is it done: blessed be the name of the Lord. 22 In all these things Job sinned not by his lips, nor spoke he any foolish thing against God.

But thou hast moved me against him, that I should afflict him without cause. 4 And Satan answered, and said: Skin for skin; and all that a man hath, he will give for his life: 5 But put forth thy hand, and touch his bone and his flesh, and then thou shalt see that he will bless thee to thy face.

1 I made a covenant with my eyes, that I would not so much as think upon a virgin. 2 For what part should God from above have in me, and what inheritance the Almighty from on high? 3 Is not destruction to the wicked, and aversion to them that work iniquity? 4 Doth not he consider my ways, and number all my steps? 5 If I have walked in vanity, and my foot hath made haste to deceit: 6 Let him weigh me in a just balance, and let God know my simplicity. 7 If my step hath turned out of the way, and if my heart hath followed my eyes, and if a spot hath cleaved to my hands: 8 Then let me sow and let another reap: and let my offspring be rooted out. 9 If my heart hath been deceived upon a woman, and if I have laid wait at my friend's door: 10 Let my wife be the harlot of another, and let other men lie with her. 11 For this is a heinous crime, and a most grievous iniquity. 12 It is a fire that devoureth even to destruction, and rooteth up all things that spring. 13 If I have despised to abide judgment with my manservant, or my maidservant, when they had any controversy against me: 14 For what shall I do when God shall rise to judge? and when he shall examine, what shall I answer him? 15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him also: and did not one and the same form me in the womb? 16 If I have denied to the poor what they desired, and have made the eyes of the widow wait: 17 If I have eaten my morsel alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof: 18 (For from my infancy mercy grew up with me: and it came out with me from my mother's womb:) 19 If I have despised him that was perishing for want of clothing, and the poor man that had no covering: 20 If his sides have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep: 21 If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, even when I saw myself superior in the gate: 22 Let my shoulder fall from its joint, and let my arm with its bones be broken. 23 For I have always feared God as waves swelling over me, and his weight I was unable to bear. 24 If I have thought gold my strength, and have said to fine gold: My confidence: 25 If I have rejoiced over my great riches, and because my hand had gotten much.
25 If I have rejoiced over my great riches, and because my hand had gotten much. 26 If I beheld the sun when it shined and the moon going in brightness: 27 And my heart in secret hath rejoiced, and I have kissed my hand with, my mouth: 28 Which is a very great iniquity, and a denial against the most high God. 29 If I have been glad at the downfall of him that hated me, and have rejoiced that evil had found him. 30 For I have not given my mouth to sin, by wishing a curse to his soul. 31 If the men of my tabernacle have not said: Who will give us of his flesh that we may be filled? 32 The stranger did not stay without, my door was open to the traveller. 33 If as a man I have hid my sin, and have concealed my iniquity in my bosom. 34 If I have been afraid at a very great multitude, and the contempt of kinsmen hath terrified me: and have not rather held my peace, and not gone out of the door. 35 Who would grant me a hearing, that the Almighty may hear my desire: and that he himself that judgeth would write a book, 36 That I may carry it on my shoulder, and put it about me as a crown? 37 At every step of mine I would pronounce it, and offer it as to a prince. 38 If my land cry against me, and with it the furrows thereof mourn: 39 If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, and have afflicted the son of the tillers thereof: 40 Let thistles grow up to me instead of wheat, and thorns instead of barley.
10 Therefore, ye men of understanding, hear me: far from God be wickedness, and iniquity from the Almighty.
14 If he turn his heart to him, he shall draw his spirit and breath unto himself.
7 When the morning stars praised me together, and all the sons of God made a joyful melody?
4 (39:34) What can I answer, who hath spoken inconsiderately? I will lay my hand upon my mouth. 5 (39:35) One thing I have spoken, which I wish I had not said: and another, to which I will add no more. 6 (40:1) And the Lord answering Job out of the whirlwind, said: 7 (40:2) Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and do thou tell me. 8 (40:3) Wilt thou make void my judgment: and condemn me, that thou mayst be justified?
25 (41:16) When he shall raise him up, the angels shall fear, and being affrighted shall purify themselves.
7 And after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Themanite: My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends, because you have not spoken the thing that is right before me, as my servant Job hath. 8 Take unto you therefore seven oxen and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer for yourselves a holocaust, and my servant Job shall pray for you: his face I will accept, that folly be not imputed to you: for you have not spoken right things before me, as my servant Job hath.
