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 turned H7451 away from 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; H376 so that this man H1419 was the greatest H1121 of all the children H6924 of the east.
4 H1121 And his sons H1980 went H4960 and held a feast H376 in the house of each H376 one H3117 upon his day; H7971 and they sent H7121 and called H7969 for their three H269 sisters H398 to eat H8354 and to drink with them.
5 H3117 And it was so, when the days H4960 of their feasting H5362 were gone about, 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. H6213 Thus did H347 Job H3117 continually.
6 H3117 Now it came to pass on the day H1121 when the sons H430 of God H935 came H3320 to present H3068 themselves before Jehovah, H7854 that Satan H935 also came H8432 among them.
7 H3068 And Jehovah H559 said H7854 unto Satan, H370 Whence H935 comest H7854 thou? Then Satan H6030 answered H3068 Jehovah, H6030 and said, H7751 From going to and fro H776 in the earth, H1980 and from walking up and down in it.
8 H3068 And Jehovah H559 said H7854 unto Satan, H7760 Hast thou considered H5650 my servant H347 Job? H776 for there is none like him in the earth, H8535 a perfect H3477 and an upright H376 man, H376 one H3373 that feareth H430 God, H7451 and turneth away from evil.
9 H7854 Then Satan H6030 answered H3068 Jehovah, H559 and said, H347 Doth Job H3372 fear H430 God H2600 for nought?
10 H7753 Hast not thou made a hedge H1157 about him, and about H1004 his house, H5439 and about all that he hath, on every side? H1288 thou hast 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 thy hand H5060 now, and touch H1288 all that he hath, and he will renounce H6440 thee to thy face.
12 H3068 And Jehovah H559 said H7854 unto Satan, H3027 Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; H7971 only upon himself put not forth H3027 thy hand. H7854 So Satan H7971 went forth H6440 from the presence H3068 of Jehovah.
13 H3117 And 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 unto Job, H559 and said, H1241 The oxen H2790 were plowing, H860 and the asses H7462 feeding H3027 beside them;
15 H7614 and the Sabeans H5307 fell H3947 upon them, and took them away: H5221 yea, they have slain H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword; H4422 and I only am escaped H5046 alone to tell thee.
16 H1696 While he was yet speaking, H935 there came H559 also another, and said, H784 The fire H430 of God H5307 is fallen H8064 from heaven, H1197 and hath burned up H6629 the sheep H5288 and the, servants, H398 and consumed H4422 them; and I only am escaped H5046 alone to tell thee.
17 H1696 While he was yet speaking, H935 there came H559 also another, and said, H3778 The Chaldeans H7760 made H7969 three H7218 bands, H6584 and fell H1581 upon the camels, H3947 and have taken them away, H5221 yea, and slain H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword; H4422 and I only am escaped H5046 alone to tell thee.
18 H1696 While he was yet speaking, H935 there came H559 also another, and said, H1121 Thy sons H1323 and thy 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 H5676 wind from H4057 the wilderness, H5060 and smote H702 the four H6438 corners H1004 of the house, H5307 and it fell H5288 upon the young men, H4191 and they are dead; H4422 and I only am escaped H5046 alone to tell thee.
20 H347 Then Job H6965 arose, H7167 and rent H4598 his robe, H1494 and shaved H7218 his head, H5307 and fell down H776 upon the ground, H7812 and worshipped;
21 H559 and he said, H6174 Naked H3318 came I out H517 of my mother's H990 womb, H6174 and naked H7725 shall I return H3068 thither: Jehovah H5414 gave, H3068 and Jehovah H3947 hath taken away; H1288 blessed H8034 be the name H3068 of Jehovah.
