1 H376 There was a man H776 in the land H5780 of Uz, H8034 whose name H347 was Job; H376 and that man H8535 was perfect H3477 and upright, H3373 and one that feared H430 God, H5493 and eschewed H7451 evil.
3 H4735 His substance H7651 also was seven H505 thousand H6629 sheep, H7969 and three H505 thousand H1581 camels, H2568 and five H3967 hundred H6776 yoke H1241 of oxen, H2568 and five H3967 hundred H860 she asses, H3966 and a very H7227 great H5657 household; H1931 so that this H376 man H1419 was the greatest H3605 of all H1121 the men H6924 of the east.
4 H1121 And his sons H1980 went H6213 and feasted H4960 H1004 in their houses, H376 every H376 one H3117 his day; H7971 and sent H7121 and called H7969 for their three H269 sisters H398 to eat H8354 and to drink with them.
5 H3588 And it was so, when H3117 the days H4960 of their feasting H5362 were gone H5362 about, H347 that Job H7971 sent H6942 and sanctified H7925 them, and rose H7925 up early H1242 in the morning, H5927 and offered H5930 burnt H4557 offerings according to the number H3605 of them all: H347 for Job H559 said, H194 It may H1121 be that my sons H2398 have sinned, H1288 and cursed H430 God H3824 in their hearts. H3602 Thus H6213 did H347 Job H3605 continually. H3117
6 H3117 Now there was a day H1121 when the sons H430 of God H935 came H3320 to present H5921 themselves before H3068 the LORD, H7854 and Satan H935 came H1571 also H8432 among them.
7 H3068 And the LORD H559 said H7854 to Satan, H370 From where H935 come H7854 you? Then Satan H6030 answered H3068 the LORD, H559 and said, H7751 From going H7751 to and fro H776 in the earth, H1980 and from walking up and down in it.
8 H3068 And the LORD H559 said H7854 to Satan, H7760 Have you considered H3820 H5650 my servant H347 Job, H369 that there is none H3644 like H776 him in the earth, H8535 a perfect H3477 and an upright H376 man, H3373 one that fears H430 God, H5493 and eschews H7451 evil?
9 H7854 Then Satan H6030 answered H3068 the LORD, H559 and said, H347 Does Job H3372 fear H430 God H2600 for nothing?
10 H7753 Have not you made an hedge H1157 about H1157 him, and about H1004 his house, H1157 and about H3605 all H5437 that he has on every H5439 side? H1288 you have blessed H4639 the work H3027 of his hands, H4735 and his substance H6555 is increased H776 in the land.
11 H7971 But put H7971 forth H3027 your hand H4994 now, H5060 and touch H3605 all H1288 that he has, and he will curse H6440 you to your face.
12 H3068 And the LORD H559 said H7854 to Satan, H2009 Behold, H3605 all H3027 that he has is in your power; H7535 only H7971 on himself put H7971 not forth H3027 your hand. H7854 So Satan H3318 went H3318 forth H6440 from the presence H3068 of the LORD.
13 H3117 And there was a day H1121 when his sons H1323 and his daughters H398 were eating H8354 and drinking H3196 wine H1060 in their oldest H251 brother’s H1004 house:
14 H935 And there came H4397 a messenger H347 to Job, H559 and said, H1241 The oxen H2790 were plowing, H860 and the asses H7462 feeding H5921 beside H3027 them:
15 H7614 And the Sabeans H5307 fell H3947 on them, and took H5221 them away; yes, they have slain H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword; H7535 and I only H4422 am escaped H905 alone H5046 to tell you.
16 H1696 While he was yet speaking, H935 there came H2088 also another, H559 and said, H784 The fire H430 of God H5307 is fallen H8064 from heaven, H1197 and has burned H6629 up the sheep, H5288 and the servants, H398 and consumed H7535 them; and I only H4422 am escaped H905 alone H5046 to tell you.
17 H1696 While he was yet speaking, H935 there came H2088 also another, H559 and said, H3778 The Chaldeans H7760 made H7969 out three H7218 bands, H6584 and fell H1581 on the camels, H3947 and have carried H5221 them away, yes, and slain H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword; H7535 and I only H4422 am escaped H905 alone H5046 to tell you.
18 H1696 While he was yet speaking, H935 there came H2088 also another, H559 and said, H1121 Your sons H1323 and your daughters H398 were eating H8354 and drinking H3196 wine H1060 in their oldest H251 brother’s H1004 house:
19 H2009 And, behold, H935 there came H1419 a great H7307 wind H4057 from the wilderness, H5060 and smote H702 the four H6438 corners H1004 of the house, H5307 and it fell H5288 on the young H4191 men, and they are dead; H7535 and I only H4422 am escaped H905 alone H5046 to tell you.
20 H347 Then Job H6965 arose, H7167 and rent H4598 his mantle, H1494 and shaved H7218 his head, H5307 and fell H776 down on the ground, H7812 and worshipped,
21 H559 And said, H6174 Naked H3318 came H517 I out of my mother’s H990 womb, H6174 and naked H7725 shall I return H8033 thither: H3068 the LORD H5414 gave, H3068 and the LORD H3947 has taken H1288 away; blessed H8034 be the name H3068 of the LORD.
