Job 2

2:1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present
 themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to
 present himself before the LORD.
2:2 And the LORD said to Satan, Whence comest thou? and Satan
 answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro on the
 earth, and from walking up and down upon it.
2:3 And the LORD said to Satan, Hast thou considered my servant
 Job, that [there is] none like him on the earth, a perfect and
 an upright man, one that feareth God, and shunneth evil? and
 still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me
 against him, to destroy him without cause.
2:4 And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, even,
 all that a man hath will he give for his life.
2:5 But put forth thy hand now, and touch his bone and his
 flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.
2:6 And the LORD said to Satan, Behold, he [is] in thy hand; but
 save his life.
2:7 So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote
 Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to his crown.
2:8 And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself with [it]; and
 he sat down among the ashes.
2:9 Then said his wife to him, Dost thou still retain thy
 integrity? curse God, and die.
2:10 But he said to her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish
 women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God,
 and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with
 his lips.
2:11 Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that
 had come upon him, they came every one from his own place;
 Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the
 Naamathite; for they had made an appointment together to come
 to mourn with him, and to comfort him.
2:12 And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him
 not, they raised their voice, and wept; and they rent every one
 his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads towards heaven.
2:13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and
 seven nights, and none spoke a word to him: for they saw that
 [his] grief was very great.
