1 H376 There was a man H776 in the land H5780 of Uz, H8034 whose name H347 was Job. H376 That man H3477 was blameless and upright, H376 and one H3373 who feared H430 God, H5493 and turned H7451 away from evil.
3 H4735 His possessions H7651 also were seven H505 thousand H6629 sheep, H7969 three H505 thousand H1581 camels, H2568 five H3967 hundred H6776 yoke H1241 of oxen, H2568 five H3967 hundred H860 female donkeys, H3966 and a very H7227 great H5657 household; H376 so that this man H7227 was the greatest H1121 of all the children H6924 of the east.
4 H1121 His sons H1980 went H4960 and held a feast H376 in the house of each H376 one H3117 on his birthday; H7971 and they sent H7121 and called H7969 for their three H269 sisters H398 to eat H8354 and to drink with them.
5 H3117 It was so, when the days H4960 of their feasting H5362 had run their course, H347 that Job H7971 sent H6942 and sanctified H7925 them, and rose up early H1242 in the morning, H5927 and offered H5930 burnt offerings H4557 according to the number H347 of them all. For Job H559 said, H194 "It may be H1121 that my sons H2398 have sinned, H1288 and renounced H430 God H3824 in their hearts." H347 Job H6213 did H3117 this continually.
6 H3117 Now it happened on the day H430 when God's H1121 sons H935 came H3320 to present H3068 themselves before Yahweh, H7854 that Satan H935 also came H8432 among them.
7 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H7854 to Satan, H370 "Where H935 have you come H7854 from?" Then Satan H6030 answered H3068 Yahweh, H559 and said, H7751 "From going back and forth H776 in the earth, H1980 and from walking up and down in it."
8 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H7854 to Satan, H7760 "Have you considered H5650 my servant, H347 Job? H776 For there is none like him in the earth, H8535 a blameless H3477 and an upright H376 man, H376 one H3373 who fears H430 God, H7451 and turns away from evil."
9 H7854 Then Satan H6030 answered H3068 Yahweh, H559 and said, H347 "Does Job H3372 fear H430 God H2600 for nothing?
10 H7753 Haven't you made a hedge H1157 around him, and around H1004 his house, H5439 and around all that he has, on every side? H1288 You have blessed H4639 the work H3027 of his hands, H4735 and his substance H6555 is increased H776 in the land.
11 H199 But H7971 put forth H3027 your hand H5060 now, and touch H1288 all that he has, and he will renounce H6440 you to your face."
12 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H7854 to Satan, H3027 "Behold, all that he has is in your power. H7971 Only on himself don't put forth H3027 your hand." H7854 So Satan H7971 went forth H6440 from the presence H3068 of Yahweh.
13 H3117 It fell on a day H1121 when his sons H1323 and his daughters H398 were eating H8354 and drinking H3196 wine H1060 in their eldest H251 brother's H1004 house,
14 H935 that there came H4397 a messenger H347 to Job, H559 and said, H1241 "The oxen H2790 were plowing, H860 and the donkeys H7462 feeding H3027 beside them,
15 H7614 and the Sabeans H5307 attacked, H3947 and took them away. H5221 Yes, they have killed H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword, H4422 and I alone have escaped H5046 to tell you."
16 H1696 While he was still speaking, H935 there also came H559 another, and said, H784 "The fire H430 of God H5307 has fallen H8064 from the sky, H1197 and has burned up H6629 the sheep H5288 and the servants, H398 and consumed H4422 them, and I alone have escaped H5046 to tell you."
17 H1696 While he was still speaking, H935 there came H559 also another, and said, H3778 "The Chaldeans H7760 made H7969 three H7218 bands, H6584 and swept H1581 down on the camels, H3947 and have taken them away, H5221 yes, and killed H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword; H4422 and I alone have escaped H5046 to tell you."
18 H1696 While he was still speaking, H935 there came H559 also another, and said, H1121 "Your sons H1323 and your daughters H398 were eating H8354 and drinking H3196 wine H1060 in their eldest H251 brother's H1004 house,
19 H935 and behold, there came H1419 a great H7307 wind H5676 from H4057 the wilderness, H5060 and struck H702 the four H6438 corners H1004 of the house, H5307 and it fell H5288 on the young men, H4191 and they are dead. H4422 I alone have escaped H5046 to tell you."
20 H347 Then Job H6965 arose, H7167 and tore H4598 his robe, H1494 and shaved H7218 his head, H5307 and fell down H776 on the ground, H7812 and worshiped.
21 H559 He said, H6174 "Naked H3318 I came out H517 of my mother's H990 womb, H6174 and naked H7725 shall I return H3068 there. Yahweh H5414 gave, H3068 and Yahweh H3947 has taken away. H1288 Blessed H8034 be the name H3068 of Yahweh."
