18-19 While he was still talking, another messenger arrived and said, “Your children were having a party at the home of the oldest brother when a tornado swept in off the desert and struck the house.

20 Job got to his feet, ripped his robe, shaved his head, then fell to the ground and worshiped:

God’s name be ever blessed.
