6One day the angels Hebrew the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan Hebrew satan means adversary. also came with them.

7The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”

8Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” 9“Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. 10“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.

11But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.”
