Satan’s Second Attack on Job

Some time later, divine beings again[a] presented themselves to the Lord, and Satan accompanied them to present himself to the Lord. The Lord asked Satan, “Where have you come from?”

In response, Satan told the Lord, “From wandering all over the earth and walking back and forth throughout it.”
