Job 2:1-6 New International Version

2 1  On another day the angels[1] came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them to present himself before him. 2  And the Lord said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the Lord, "From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it." 3  Then 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. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason." 4  "Skin for skin!" Satan replied. "A man will give all he has for his own life. 5  But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face." 6  The Lord said to Satan, "Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life."
