Job 1


1
There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job. He was without sin and upright, fearing God and keeping himself far from evil.
2
And he had seven sons and three daughters.
3
And of cattle he had seven thousand sheep and goats, and three thousand camels, and a thousand oxen, and five hundred she-asses, and a very great number of servants. And the man was greater than any of the sons of the east.
4
His sons regularly went to one another's houses, and every one on his day gave a feast: and at these times they sent for their three sisters to take part in their feasts with them.
5
And at the end of their days of feasting, Job sent and made them clean, getting up early in the morning and offering burned offerings for them all. For, Job said, It may be that my sons have done wrong and said evil of God in their hearts. And Job did this whenever the feasts came round.
6
And there was a day when the sons of the gods came together before the Lord, and the Satan came with them.
7
And the Lord said to the Satan, Where do you come from? And the Satan said in answer, From wandering this way and that on the earth, and walking about on it.
8
And the Lord said to the Satan, Have you taken note of my servant Job, for there is no one like him on the earth, a man without sin and upright, fearing God and keeping himself far from evil?
9
And the Satan said in answer to the Lord, Is it for nothing that Job is a god-fearing man?
10
Have you yourself not put a wall round him and his house and all he has on every side, blessing the work of his hands, and increasing his cattle in the land?
11
But now, put out your hand against all he has, and he will be cursing you to your face.
12
And the Lord said to the Satan, See, I give all he has into your hands, only do not put a finger on the man himself. And the Satan went out from before the Lord.
13
And there was a day when his sons and daughters were feasting in the house of their oldest brother,
14
And a man came to Job, and said, The oxen were ploughing, and the asses were taking their food by their side:
15
And the men of Sheba came against them and took them away, putting the young men to the sword, and I was the only one who got away safe to give you the news.
16
And this one was still talking when another came, and said, The fire of God came down from heaven, burning up the sheep and the goats and the young men completely, and I was the only one who got away safe to give you the news.
17
And this one was still talking when another came, and said, The Chaldaeans made themselves into three bands, and came down on the camels and took them away, putting the young men to the sword, and I was the only one who got away safe to give you the news.
18
And this one was still talking when another came, and said, Your sons and your daughters were feasting together in their oldest brother's house,
19
When a great wind came rushing from the waste land against the four sides of the house, and it came down on the young men, and they are dead and I was the only one who got away safe to give you the news.
20
Then Job got up, and after parting his clothing and cutting off his hair, he went down on his face to the earth, and gave worship, and said,
21
With nothing I came out of my mother's body, and with nothing I will go back there the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away let the Lord's name be praised.
22
In all this Job did no sin, and did not say that God's acts were foolish.

Job 2


1
And there was a day when the sons of the gods came together before the Lord, and the Satan came with them.
2
And the Lord said to the Satan, Where do you come from? And the Satan said in answer, From wandering this way and that on the earth, and walking about on it.
3
And the Lord said to the Satan, Have you taken note of my servant Job, for there is no one like him on the earth, a man without sin and upright, fearing God and keeping himself far from evil? and he still keeps his righteousness, though you have been moving me to send destruction on him without cause.
4
And the Satan said in answer to the Lord, Skin for skin, all a man has he will give for his life.
5
But now, if you only put your hand on his bone and his flesh, he will certainly be cursing you to your face.
6
And the Lord said to the Satan, See, he is in your hands, only do not take his life.
7
And the Satan went out from before the Lord, and sent on Job an evil disease covering his skin from his feet to the top of his head.
8
And he took a broken bit of a pot, and, seated in the dust, was rubbing himself with the sharp edge of it.
9
And his wife said to him, Are you still keeping your righteousness? Say a curse against God, and put an end to yourself.
10
And he said to her, You are talking like one of the foolish women. If we take the good God sends us, are we not to take the evil when it comes? In all this Job kept his lips from sin.
11
And Job's three friends had word of all this evil which had come on him. And they came every one from his place, Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite. So they came together to a meeting-place, in order that they might go and make clear to Job their grief for him, and give him comfort.
12
And lifting up their eyes when they were still far off, it did not seem that the man they saw was Job because of the change in him. And they gave way to bitter weeping, with signs of grief, and put dust on their heads.
13
And they took their seats on the earth by his side for seven days and seven nights: but no one said a word to him, for they saw that his pain was very great.

1 Thessalonians 4


1
And last of all, the prayer which we make to you from our heart and in the name of the Lord Jesus, is this: that as we made clear to you what sort of behaviour is pleasing to God, as in fact you are doing now, so you will go on in these ways, but more and more.
2
Because you have in mind the orders we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
3
For the purpose of God for you is this: that you may be holy, and may keep yourselves from the desires of the flesh
4
So that every one of you may keep his body holy and in honour
5
Not in the passion of evil desires, like the Gentiles, who have no knowledge of God
6
And that no man may make attempts to get the better of his brother in business: for the Lord is the judge in all these things, as we said to you before and gave witness.
7
Because it is God's purpose that our way of life may be not unclean but holy.
8
Whoever, then, goes against this word, goes against not man but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.
9
But about loving the brothers, there is no need for me to say anything to you in this letter: for you have the teaching of God that love for one another is right and necessary
10
And, truly, you are lovers of all the brothers in Macedonia but it is our desire that your love may be increased still more
11
And that you may take pride in being quiet and doing your business, working with your hands as we gave you orders
12
That you may be respected by those who are outside, and may have need of nothing.
13
But it is our desire, brothers, that you may be certain about those who are sleeping so that you may have no need for sorrow, as others have who are without hope.
14
For if we have faith that Jesus underwent death and came back again, even so those who are sleeping will come again with him by God's power.
15
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are still living at the coming of the Lord, will not go before those who are sleeping.
16
Because the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a word of authority, with the voice of the chief angel, with the sound of a horn: and the dead in Christ will come to life first
17
Then we who are still living will be taken up together with them into the clouds to see the Lord in the air: and so will we be for ever with the Lord.
18
So then, give comfort to one another with these words.
