Satan Allowed to Test Job

Now there was a day when (A)the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and (B)Satan[a] also came among them. The Lord said to Satan, “From where have you come?” Satan answered the Lord and said, “From (C)going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.” And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you (D)considered my (E)servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, (F)a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for no reason? 10 Have you not put (G)a hedge around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have (H)blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But (I)stretch out your hand and (J)touch all that he has, and he will (K)curse you (L)to your face.” 12 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your hand. Only against him do not stretch out your hand.” So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.

And the Lord said to Satan, “From where have you come?” Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.” And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil? He still (B)holds fast his integrity, although you incited me against him to destroy him (C)without reason.” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin! All that a man has he will give for his life. But (D)stretch out your hand and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will (E)curse you to your face.” And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your hand; only spare his life.”
