Job
Satan was given permission to test Job further.

Job

The Book of Job is the eighteenth book in the Bible and the first of the Poetic Books. It is thought to be the oldest book in the Bible as Job lived in the same period as Abraham, long before the time of Moses who wrote the first five of the Historical Books. The Book of Job tells us of his suffering; the loss of his family, his health and his money. This suffering takes away Job's pride and he acknowledges God's greatness and power.

All quotations from the Bible are taken from the Authorised King James Version.

"Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an 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. But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face"

blessed be the name of the Lord.
In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly"

Job 38:4-7
"Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?
or who laid the corner stone thereof;
when the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?"

Job replys to God, acknowledging His power and recognising his own lack of knowledge.

Job 42:3
"Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge?
therefore have I uttered that I understood not;
things too wonderful for me, which I knew not"
