1 H3117 Again there was a day H1121 when the sons H430 of God H935 [H8799] came H3320 [H8692] to present H3068 themselves before the LORD H7854 , and Satan H935 [H8799] came H8432 also among H3320 [H8692] them to present H3068 himself before the LORD.
2 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H7854 to Satan H335 , From where H935 [H8799] comest H7854 thou? And Satan H6030 [H8799] answered H3068 the LORD H559 [H8799] , and said H7751 [H8800] , From going to and fro H776 on the earth H1980 [H8692] , and from walking up and down upon it.
3 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H7854 to Satan H7760 [H8804] , Hast thou H3820 considered H5650 my servant H347 Job H776 , that there is none like him on the earth H8535 , a perfect H3477 and an upright H376 man H3373 , one that feareth H430 God H5493 [H8802] , and turneth away from H7451 evil H2388 [H8688] ? and still he holdeth fast H8538 his integrity H5496 [H8686] , although thou didst move H1104 [H8763] me against him, to destroy H2600 him without cause.
4 H7854 And Satan H6030 [H8799] answered H3068 the LORD H559 [H8799] , and said H5785 , Skin H5785 for skin H376 , even, all that a man H5414 [H8799] hath will he give H5315 for his life.
5 H199 But H7971 [H8798] put forth H3027 thy hand H5060 [H8798] now, and touch H6106 his bone H1320 and his flesh H1288 [H8762] , and he will curse H6440 thee to thy face.
6 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H7854 to Satan H3027 , Behold, he is in thy hand H8104 [H8798] ; but save H5315 his life.
7 H7854 So Satan H3318 [H8799] went forth H6440 from the presence H3068 of the LORD H5221 [H8686] , and smote H347 Job H7451 with severe H7822 boils H3709 from the sole H7272 of his foot H6936 to his crown.
8 H3947 [H8799] And he took H2789 a potsherd H1623 [H8692] to scrape H3427 [H8802] himself with; and he sat down H8432 among H665 the ashes.
9 H559 [H8799] Then said H802 his wife H2388 [H8688] to him, Dost thou still retain H8538 thy integrity H1288 [H8761] ? curse H430 God H4191 [H8798] , and die.
10 H559 [H8799] But he said H1696 [H8762] to her, Thou speakest H259 as one H5036 of the foolish women H1696 [H8763] speaketh H1571 . What H6901 [H8762] ? shall we receive H2896 good H430 at the hand of God H6901 [H8762] , and shall we not receive H7451 evil H347 ? In all this did not Job H2398 [H8804] sin H8193 with his lips.
11 H347 Now when Job's H7969 three H7453 friends H8085 [H8799] heard H7451 of all this evil H935 [H8802] that had come H935 [H8799] upon him, they came H376 every one H4725 from his own place H464 ; Eliphaz H8489 the Temanite H1085 , and Bildad H7747 the Shuhite H6691 , and Zophar H5284 the Naamathite H3259 [H8735] : for they had made an appointment H3162 together H935 [H8800] to come H5110 [H8800] to mourn H5162 [H8763] with him and to comfort him.
12 H5375 [H8799] And when they lifted up H5869 their eyes H7350 afar off H5234 [H8689] , and knew H5375 [H8799] him not, they raised H6963 their voice H1058 [H8799] , and wept H7167 [H8799] ; and they tore H376 every one H4598 his mantle H2236 [H8799] , and sprinkled H6083 dust H7218 upon their heads H8064 toward heaven.
