Job 1

There was a man
<0376>
in the land
<0776>
of Uz
<05780>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Job
<0347>_;
and that man
<0376>
was perfect
<08535>
and upright
<03477>_,
and one that feared
<03373>
God
<0430>_,
and eschewed
<05493> (8802)
evil
<07451>_.
And there were born
<03205> (8735)
unto him seven
<07651>
sons
<01121>
and three
<07969>
daughters
<01323>_.
His substance
<04735>
also was seven
<07651>
thousand
<0505>
sheep
<06629>_,
and three
<07969>
thousand
<0505>
camels
<01581>_,
and five
<02568>
hundred
<03967>
yoke
<06776>
of oxen
<01241>_,
and five
<02568>
hundred
<03967>
she asses
<0860>_,
and a very
<03966>
great
<07227>
household
<05657>_;
so that this man
<0376>
was the greatest
<01419>
of all the men
<01121>
of the east
<06924>_.
{substance: or, cattle} {household: or, husbandry} {men: Heb. sons}
And his sons
<01121>
went
<01980> (8804)
and feasted
<04960> <06213> (8804)
[in their] houses
<01004>_,
every one
<0376>
his day
<03117>_;
and sent
<07971> (8804)
and called
<07121> (8804)
for their three
<07969>
sisters
<0269>
to eat
<0398> (8800)
and to drink
<08354> (8800)
with them.
And it was so, when the days
<03117>
of [their] feasting
<04960>
were gone about
<05362> (8689)_,
that Job
<0347>
sent
<07971> (8799)
and sanctified
<06942> (8762)
them, and rose up early
<07925> (8689)
in the morning
<01242>_,
and offered
<05927> (8689)
burnt offerings
<05930>
[according] to the number
<04557>
of them all: for Job
<0347>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
It may be
<0194>
that my sons
<01121>
have sinned
<02398> (8804)_,
and cursed
<01288> (8765)
God
<0430>
in their hearts
<03824>_.
Thus did
<06213> (8799)
Job
<0347>
continually
<03117>_.
{continually: Heb. all the days}
Now there was a day
<03117>
when the sons
<01121>
of God
<0430>
came
<0935> (8799)
to present
<03320> (8692)
themselves before the LORD
<03068>_,
and Satan
<07854>
came
<0935> (8799)
also among
<08432>
them. {Satan: Heb. the adversary} {among: Heb. in the midst of}
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Satan
<07854>_,
Whence
<0370>
comest
<0935> (8799)
thou? Then Satan
<07854>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
From going to and fro
<07751> (8800)
in the earth
<0776>_,
and from walking up and down
<01980> (8692)
in it.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Satan
<07854>_,
Hast thou considered
<07760> (8804) <03820>
my servant
<05650>
Job
<0347>_,
that [there is] none like him in the earth
<0776>_,
a perfect
<08535>
and an upright
<03477>
man
<0376>_,
one that feareth
<03373>
God
<0430>_,
and escheweth
<05493> (8802)
evil
<07451>_?
{considered: Heb. set thy heart on}
Then Satan
<07854>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Doth Job
<0347>
fear
<03372> (8804)
God
<0430>
for nought
<02600>_?
Hast not thou made an hedge
<07753> (8804)
about him, and about
<01157>
his house
<01004>_,
and about all that he hath on every side
<05439>_?
thou hast blessed
<01288> (8765)
the work
<04639>
of his hands
<03027>_,
and his substance
<04735>
is increased
<06555> (8804)
in the land
<0776>_.
{substance: or, cattle}
But
<0199>
put forth
<07971> (8798)
thine hand
<03027>
now, and touch
<05060> (8798)
all that he hath, and he will curse
<01288> (8762) <03808>
thee to thy face
<06440>_.
{and he...: Heb. if he curse thee not to thy face}
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Satan
<07854>_,
Behold, all that he hath [is] in thy power
<03027>_;
only upon himself put not forth
<07971> (8799)
thine hand
<03027>_.
So Satan
<07854>
went forth
<03318> (8799)
from the presence
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{power: Heb. hand}
And there was a day
<03117>
when his sons
<01121>
and his daughters
<01323>
[were] eating
<0398> (8802)
and drinking
<08354> (8802)
wine
<03196>
in their eldest
<01060>
brother's
<0251>
house
<01004>_:
And there came
<0935> (8804)
a messenger
<04397>
unto Job
<0347>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
The oxen
<01241>
were plowing
<02790> (8802)_,
and the asses
<0860>
feeding
<07462> (8802)
beside
<03027>
them:
And the Sabeans
<07614>
fell
<05307> (8799)
[upon them], and took them away
<03947> (8799)_;
yea, they have slain
<05221> (8689)
the servants
<05288>
with the edge
<06310>
of the sword
<02719>_;
and I only am escaped
<04422> (8735)
alone to tell
<05046> (8687)
thee.
While he [was] yet speaking
<01696> (8764)_,
there came
<0935> (8802)
also another, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
The fire
<0784>
of God
<0430>
is fallen
<05307> (8804)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and hath burned up
<01197> (8799)
the sheep
<06629>_,
and the servants
<05288>_,
and consumed
<0398> (8799)
them; and I only am escaped
<04422> (8735)
alone to tell
<05046> (8687)
thee. {The fire...: or, A great fire}
While he [was] yet speaking
<01696> (8764)_,
there came
<0935> (8802)
also another, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
The Chaldeans
<03778>
made out
<07760> (8804)
three
<07969>
bands
<07218>_,
and fell
<06584> (8799)
upon the camels
<01581>_,
and have carried them away
<03947> (8799)_,
yea, and slain
<05221> (8689)
the servants
<05288>
with the edge
<06310>
of the sword
<02719>_;
and I only am escaped
<04422> (8735)
alone to tell
<05046> (8687)
thee. {fell: Heb. rushed}
While he [was] yet speaking
<01696> (8764)_,
there came
<0935> (8802)
also another, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thy sons
<01121>
and thy daughters
<01323>
[were] eating
<0398> (8802)
and drinking
<08354> (8802)
wine
<03196>
in their eldest
<01060>
brother's
<0251>
house
<01004>_:
And, behold, there came
<0935> (8804)
a great
<01419>
wind
<07307>
from
<05676>
the wilderness
<04057>_,
and smote
<05060> (8799)
the four
<0702>
corners
<06438>
of the house
<01004>_,
and it fell
<05307> (8799)
upon the young men
<05288>_,
and they are dead
<04191> (8799)_;
and I only am escaped
<04422> (8735)
alone to tell
<05046> (8687)
thee. {from...: Heb. from aside, etc}
Then Job
<0347>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and rent
<07167> (8799)
his mantle
<04598>_,
and shaved
<01494> (8799)
his head
<07218>_,
and fell down
<05307> (8799)
upon the ground
<0776>_,
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)_,
{mantle: or, robe}
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
Naked
<06174>
came I out
<03318> (8804)
of my mother's
<0517>
womb
<0990>_,
and naked
<06174>
shall I return
<07725> (8799)
thither: the LORD
<03068>
gave
<05414> (8804)_,
and the LORD
<03068>
hath taken away
<03947> (8804)_;
blessed
<01288> (8794)
be the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
In all this Job
<0347>
sinned
<02398> (8804)
not, nor charged
<05414> (8804)
God
<0430>
foolishly
<08604>_.
{charged...: or, attributed folly to God}
