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.1On another day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them to present himself before him.
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.”2And the LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth 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.”3Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason."
4“Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give up all he owns in exchange for his life.4"Skin for skin!" Satan replied. "A man will give all he has for his own life.
5But stretch out Your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse You to Your face.”5But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face."
6“Very well,” said the LORD to Satan. “He is in your hands, but you must spare his life.”6The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life."

9Then Job’s wife said to him, “Do you still retain your integrity? Curse God and die!”9His wife said to him, "Are you still maintaining 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.10He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?" In all this, Job did not sin in 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, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and 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 saw him from a distance, they could hardly recognize him; they began to weep aloud, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust 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.13Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was.
