Job 1:4-6 Living Bible (TLB)

Every year when Job’s sons had birthdays, they invited their brothers and sisters to their homes for a celebration. On these occasions they would eat and drink with great merriment. When these birthday parties ended—and sometimes they lasted several days—Job would summon his children to him and sanctify them, getting up early in the morning and offering a burnt offering for each of them. For Job said, “Perhaps my sons have sinned and turned away from God[a] in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular practice.

One day as the angels[b] came to present themselves before the Lord, Satan, the Accuser, came with them.


  1. Job 1:5 turned away from God, literally, “have cursed God.”
  2. Job 1:6 the angels, literally, “the sons of God.”
