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 [H8802] and turned away from 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 female donkeys, H3966 and a very H7227 great H5657 household; H376 so that this man H1419 was the greatest H1121 of all the men H6924 of the east.
4 H1121 And his sons H1980 [H8804] went H4960 H6213 [H8804] and feasted H1004 in their houses, H376 every one H3117 his day; H7971 [H8804] and sent H7121 [H8804] and called H7969 for their three H269 sisters H398 [H8800] to eat H8354 [H8800] and to drink with them.
5 H3117 And it was so, when the days H4960 of their feasting H5362 [H8689] were ended, H347 that Job H7971 [H8799] sent H6942 [H8762] and sanctified H7925 [H8689] them, and rose early H1242 in the morning, H5927 [H8689] and offered H5930 burnt offerings H4557 according to the number H347 of them all: for Job H559 [H8804] said, H194 It may be H1121 that my sons H2398 [H8804] have sinned, H1288 [H8765] and cursed H430 God H3824 in their hearts. H6213 [H8799] Thus did H347 Job H3117 continually.
6 H3117 Now 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 them.
7 G2962 And the LORD H3068 H559 [H8799] said G3588 to the G1228 adversary H7854 , H370 From where H935 [H8799] comest H7854 thou? Then 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.
8 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H7854 to Satan, H7760 H3820 [H8804] Hast thou 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?
9 H7854 Then Satan H6030 [H8799] answered H3068 the LORD, H559 [H8799] and said, H347 Doth Job H3372 [H8804] fear H430 God H2600 for nothing?
10 H7753 [H8804] Hast not thou made an hedge H1157 about him, and about H1004 his house, H5439 and about all that he hath on every side? H1288 [H8765] thou hast blessed H4639 the work H3027 of his hands, H4735 and his substance H6555 [H8804] is increased H776 in the land.
11 H199 But H7971 [H8798] put forth H3027 thy hand H5060 [H8798] now, and touch H1288 H3808 [H8762] all that he hath, and he will curse H6440 thee to thy face.
12 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H7854 to Satan, H3027 Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; H7971 [H8799] only upon himself put not forth H3027 thy hand. H7854 So Satan H3318 [H8799] went 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 [H8802] were eating H8354 [H8802] and drinking H3196 wine H1060 in their eldest H251 brother's H1004 house:
14 H935 [H8804] And there came H4397 a messenger H347 to Job, H559 [H8799] and said, H1241 The oxen H2790 [H8802] were plowing, H860 and the donkeys H7462 [H8802] feeding H3027 beside them:
15 H7614 And the Sabeans H5307 [H8799] fell H3947 [H8799] upon them, and took them away; H5221 [H8689] yea, they have slain H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword; H4422 [H8735] and I only have escaped H5046 [H8687] alone to tell thee.
16 H1696 [H8764] While he was yet speaking, H935 [H8802] there came H559 [H8799] also another, and said, H784 The fire H430 of God H5307 [H8804] hath fallen H8064 from heaven, H1197 [H8799] and hath burned up H6629 the sheep, H5288 and the servants, H398 [H8799] and consumed H4422 [H8735] them; and I only have escaped H5046 [H8687] alone to tell thee.
17 H1696 [H8764] While he was yet speaking, H935 [H8802] there came H559 [H8799] also another, and said, H3778 The Chaldeans H7760 [H8804] made H7969 three H7218 bands, H6584 [H8799] and fell H1581 upon the camels, H3947 [H8799] and have carried them away, H5221 [H8689] yea, and slain H5288 the servants H6310 with the edge H2719 of the sword; H4422 [H8735] and I only have escaped H5046 [H8687] alone to tell thee.
18 H1696 [H8764] While he was yet speaking, H935 [H8802] there came H559 [H8799] also another, and said, H1121 Thy sons H1323 and thy daughters H398 [H8802] were eating H8354 [H8802] and drinking H3196 wine H1060 in their eldest H251 brother's H1004 house:
19 H935 [H8804] And, behold, there came H1419 a great H7307 wind H5676 from H4057 the wilderness, H5060 [H8799] and smote H702 the four H6438 corners H1004 of the house, H5307 [H8799] and it fell H5288 upon the young men, H4191 [H8799] and they are dead; H4422 [H8735] and I only have escaped H5046 [H8687] alone to tell thee.
20 H347 Then Job H6965 [H8799] arose, H7167 [H8799] and tore H4598 his mantle, H1494 [H8799] and shaved H7218 his head, H5307 [H8799] and fell H776 upon the ground, H7812 [H8691] and worshipped,
21 H559 [H8799] And said, H6174 Naked H3318 [H8804] came I H517 from my mother's H990 womb, H6174 and naked H7725 [H8799] shall I return H3068 there: the LORD H5414 [H8804] gave, H3068 and the LORD H3947 [H8804] hath taken away; H1288 [H8794] blessed H8034 be the name H3068 of the LORD.
