The Book of Job is the 18th book of the Old Testament of the Bible, and contains a single story of a man named Job (prounounced "Jobe"). In the story, Job, a faithful servant of God, has his life turned upside down and his family killed because of a bet that God makes with Satan.

Story

Job, who lives in the land of Uz, is "perfect and upright". (Job 1:1) He has a happy marriage with many sons and daughters, and he owns plenty of livestock and servants.

God meets Satan and asks: "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." (Job 1:8) Satan replies that Job is good only because he has a good life, "stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face."
