Job 1:6-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

Satan Attacks Job’s Character

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and [a]Satan also came among them. And the Lord said to [b]Satan, “From where do you come?”

So Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”

Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you [c]considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and [d]shuns evil?”
