Job 1

Index Next chapter
1 There was a man in the land of Uz, his name is Job; and this man was blameless, fair, and God-fearing, and moved away from evil.
2 And he had seven sons and three daughters.
3 He had an estate: seven thousand small cattle, three thousand camels, five hundred pairs of oxen and five hundred donkeys and a lot of servants; and this man was more famous than all the sons of the East.

4 His sons converged, making feasts each in his house on his own day, and sent and invited his three sisters to eat and drink with them.
5 When the circle of feast days was completed, Job sent [for them] and consecrated them, and, rising early in the morning, offered burnt offerings according to the number of all of them. For Job said: perhaps my sons have sinned and blasphemed God in their hearts. So did Job all these days.

6 And there was a day when the sons of God came to appear before the Lord; between them came Satan.
7 And the Lord said to Satan: where did you come from? And Satan answered the Lord and said: I walked the earth and went round it.
eight And the Lord said to Satan: Have you paid your attention to My servant Job? for there is none like him on earth: a man blameless, just, God-fearing and moving away from evil.
nine And Satan answered the Lord and said: Is Job fearing God for nothing?
ten Have you not surrounded him and his house and all that is with him? You blessed the work of his hands, and his flocks spread over the earth;
eleven but stretch out thy hand and touch all that is with him - will he bless you?
12 And the Lord said to Satan: behold, all that he has is in your hand; only do not stretch your hands upon it. And Satan departed from the presence of the Lord.

13 And there was a day when his sons and his daughters ate and drank wine in the house of their firstborn brother.
fourteen And [behold] a messenger comes to Job and says:
fifteen the oxen shouted, and donkeys grazed beside them, as the Saveites attacked and took them, and the ladies struck the point of the sword; and I alone was saved, to proclaim to you.
16 He also said how another comes and says: the fire of God fell from heaven and scorched the sheep and the ladies and devoured them; and I alone was saved, to proclaim to you.
17 He also said how another comes and says: The Chaldeans settled down in three groups and rushed to the camels and took them, and the youths were struck by the point of the sword; and I alone was saved, to proclaim to you.
18 This one also said, another comes and says: thy sons and thy daughters ate and drank wine in the house of their firstborn brother;
19 and, behold, a great wind came from the desert and swept over the four corners of the house, and the house fell upon the ladies, and they died; and I alone was saved, to proclaim to you.

20 Then Job stood up and tore his upper garment, cut off his head, and fell to the ground and bowed.
21 and said: naked I came out of my mother’s womb, naked and I will return. The Lord gave, the Lord and took; blessed be the name of the Lord!
22 In all this Job did not sin and did not say anything unreasonable about God.
