Job 1:1-22
1. There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and turned away from evil.
2. And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
3. His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she-asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the children of the east.
4. And his sons went and held a feast in the house of each one upon his day; and they sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.
5. And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt-offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and renounced God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.
6. Now it came to pass on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah, that Satan also came among them.
7. And Jehovah said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered Jehovah, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
8. And Jehovah said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job? for there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and turneth away from evil.
9. Then Satan answered Jehovah, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
10. Hast not thou made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath, on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
11. But put forth thy hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will renounce thee to thy face.
12. And Jehovah said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thy hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of Jehovah.
13. And it fell on a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house,
14. that there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them;
15. and the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away: yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
16. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
17. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have taken them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
18. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house;
19. and, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
20. Then Job arose, and rent his robe, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped;
21. and he said, Naked came I out of my mothers womb, and naked shall I return thither: Jehovah gave, and Jehovah hath taken away; blessed be the name of Jehovah.
22. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

Job 2:1-13
1. Again it came to pass on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah, that Satan came also among them to present himself before Jehovah.
2. And Jehovah said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered Jehovah, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
3. And Jehovah said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job? for there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and turneth away from evil: and he still holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.
4. And Satan answered Jehovah, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.
5. But put forth thy hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will renounce thee to thy face.
6. And Jehovah said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thy hand; only spare his life.
7. So Satan went forth from the presence of Jehovah, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.
8. And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself therewith; and he sat among the ashes.
9. Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still hold fast thine integrity? renounce God, and die.
10. But he said unto 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.
11. Now when Jobs three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place: Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite, and they made an appointment together to come to bemoan him and to comfort him.
12. And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his robe, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven.
13. So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

Psalms 91:7-13
7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, And ten thousand at thy right hand; But it shall not come nigh thee.
8. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And see the reward of the wicked.
9. For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation;
10. There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent.
11. For he will give his angels charge over thee, To keep thee in all thy ways.
12. They shall bear thee up in their hands, Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under foot.

Proverbs 22:13-14
13. The sluggard saith, There is a lion without: I shall be slain in the streets.
14. The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: He that is abhorred of Jehovah shall fall therein.

Romans 7:1-25
1. Or are ye ignorant, brethren (for I speak to men who know the law), that the law hath dominion over a man for so long time as he liveth?
2. For the woman that hath a husband is bound by law to the husband while he liveth; but if the husband die, she is discharged from the law of the husband.
3. So then if, while the husband liveth, she be joined to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if the husband die, she is free from the law, so that she is no adulteress, though she be joined to another man.
4. Wherefore, my brethren, ye also were made dead to the law through the body of Christ; that ye should be joined to another, even to him who was raised from the dead, that we might bring forth fruit unto God.
5. For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were through the law, wrought in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
6. But now we have been discharged from the law, having died to that wherein we were held; so that we serve in newness of the spirit, and not in oldness of the letter.
7. What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Howbeit, I had not known sin, except through the law: for I had not known coveting, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet:
8. but sin, finding occasion, wrought in me through the commandment all manner of coveting: for apart from the law sin is dead.
9. And I was alive apart from the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died;
10. and the commandment, which was unto life, this I found to be unto death:
11. for sin, finding occasion, through the commandment beguiled me, and through it slew me.
12. So that the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and righteous, and good.
13. Did then that which is good become death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might be shown to be sin, by working death to me through that which is good; --that through the commandment sin might become exceeding sinful.
14. For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15. For that which I do I know not: for not what I would, that do I practise; but what I hate, that I do.
16. But if what I would not, that I do, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17. So now it is no more I that do it, but sin which dwelleth in me.
18. For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me, but to do that which is good is not.
19. For the good which I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I practise.
20. But if what I would not, that I do, it is no more I that do it, but sin which dwelleth in me.
21. I find then the law, that, to me who would do good, evil is present.
22. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
23. but I see a different law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity under the law of sin which is in my members.
24. Wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me out of the body of this death?
25. I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then I of myself with the mind, indeed, serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
