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.1Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them to present himself before 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 said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "From roaming about on the earth and walking around on 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 said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin 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 and said, "Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life.
5But stretch out Your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse You to Your face.”5"However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face."
6“Very well,” said the LORD to Satan. “He is in your hands, but you must spare his life.”6So the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, he is in your power, only spare 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.7Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.
8And Job took a piece of broken pottery to scrape himself as he sat among the ashes.8And he took a potsherd to scrape himself while he was sitting among the ashes.
9Then Job’s wife said to him, “Do you still retain your integrity? Curse God and die!”9Then his wife said to him, "Do you still hold fast 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 said to her, "You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?" In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
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.11Now when Job's three friends heard of all this adversity that had come upon him, they came each one from his own place, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite; and they made an appointment together to come to sympathize with him 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.12When they lifted up their eyes at a distance and did not recognize him, they raised their voices and wept. And each of them tore his robe and they threw dust over their heads toward the sky.
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.13Then they sat down on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights with no one speaking a word to him, for they saw that his pain was very great.
