Bible: Job 1:8-12

1:8 So the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered 1  my servant Job? There 2  is no one like him on the earth, a pure and upright man, one who fears God and turns away 3  from evil.”

1:9 Then Satan answered the Lord, “Is it for nothing that Job fears God? 4  1:10 Have you 5  not made a hedge 6  around him and his household and all that he has on every side? You have blessed 7  the work of his hands, and his livestock 8  have increased 9  in the land. 1:11 But 10  extend your hand and strike 11  everything he has, and he will no doubt 12  curse you 13  to your face!

1:12 So the Lord said to Satan, “All right then, 14  everything he has is 15  in your power. 16  Only do not extend your hand against the man himself!” 17  So Satan went out 18  from the presence of the Lord. 19
