Bible: Job 1:6-11

Satan’s Accusation of Job 1 

1:6 Now the day came when 2  the sons of God 3  came to present themselves before 4  the Lordand Satan 5  also arrived among them. 1:7 The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” 6  And Satan answered the Lord, 7  “From roving about 8  on the earth, and from walking back and forth across it.” 9  1:8 So the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered 10  my servant Job? There 11  is no one like him on the earth, a pure and upright man, one who fears God and turns away 12  from evil.”

1:9 Then Satan answered the Lord, “Is it for nothing that Job fears God? 13  1:10 Have you 14  not made a hedge 15  around him and his household and all that he has on every side? You have blessed 16  the work of his hands, and his livestock 17  have increased 18  in the land. 1:11 But 19  extend your hand and strike 20  everything he has, and he will no doubt 21  curse you 22  to your face!
