Berean Study BibleInternational Standard Version
1On another day the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them to present himself before Him.1Some time later, divine beings again presented themselves to the LORD, and Satan accompanied them to present himself to the LORD.
2“Where have you come from?” said the LORD to Satan. “From roaming through the earth,” he replied, “and walking back and forth in it.”2The LORD asked Satan, "Where have you come from?" In response, Satan told the LORD, "From wandering all over the earth and walking back and forth throughout it."
3Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one on earth like him—blameless and upright, fearing God and shunning evil. He still retains his integrity, even though you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause.”3The LORD asked Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one like him on earth. The man is blameless as well as upright. He fears God and keeps away from evil. He remains firm in his integrity, even though you have been urging me to overwhelm him without cause."
4“Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give up all he owns in exchange for his life.4Satan answered the LORD, "Skin for skin! The man will give up everything that he owns in exchange for his health.
5But stretch out Your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse You to Your face.”5However, stretch out your hand and strike his bones and flesh, and he'll curse you to your face, won't he?"
6“Very well,” said the LORD to Satan. “He is in your hands, but you must spare his life.”6Then the LORD told Satan, "Very well then, he is under your control. Just preserve his life."
7So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and infected Job with terrible boils from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head.7So Satan left the LORD's presence and struck Job with terrible boils from the sole of his feet to the top of his head.
8And Job took a piece of broken pottery to scrape himself as he sat among the ashes.8Job took a broken piece of pottery to scrape himself while sitting among the ashes.
9Then Job’s wife said to him, “Do you still retain your integrity? Curse God and die!”9Then his wife told him, "Do you remain firm in your integrity? Curse God and die!"
10“You speak as a foolish woman speaks,” he told her. “Should we accept from God only good and not adversity?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.10But he replied to her, "You're talking like foolish women do. Are we to accept what is good from God but not tragedy?" Throughout all of this, Job did not sin by what he said.
11Now when Job’s three friends—Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite—heard about all this adversity that had come upon him, each of them came from his home, and they met together to go and sympathize with Job and comfort him.11When Job's three friends heard all these tragedies that happened to him, they each traveled from their home towns to visit him. Eliphaz came from Teman, Bildad came from Shuah, and Zophar came from Naamath. They met together and went to console and comfort him.
12When they lifted up their eyes from afar, they could barely recognize Job. They began to weep aloud, and each man tore his robe and threw dust into the air over his head.12Observing him from a distance, at first they didn't even recognize him, so they raised their voices and burst into tears. They each ripped their robes, threw ashes into the air on their heads,
13Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw how intense his suffering was.13and sat with Job on the ground for a full week without saying a word, since they could see the great extent of his anguish. Job Laments the Day He was Born
