Satan’s Additional Charge

2:1 Again the day came when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also arrived among them to present himself before the Lord. 1  2:2 And the Lord said to Satan, “Where do you come from?” Satan answered the Lord, 2  “From roving about on the earth, and from walking back and forth across it.” 3
