Job 2:1-3 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

The Adversary’s Attack on Job’s Person

And then[a] one day the sons of God[b] came to present themselves before Yahweh, and Satan[c] also came into their midst to present himself before Yahweh. So[d] Yahweh asked[e] Satan,[f] “From where have you come?”

And Satan[g] answered Yahweh and said, “From roaming on the earth and from walking about in it.”

So[h] Yahweh asked[i] Satan,[j] “Have you considered[k] my servant Job? Indeed,[l] there is no one like him on the earth—a blameless man and upright and God-fearing and turning away from evil. And still he persists in his blamelessness even though[m] you incited me against him to destroy him for nothing.”
