8 (NIV) Then the LORD said
to Satan, "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." 9 "Does Job fear God for
nothing?" Satan replied. 10 "Have you not put a hedge
around him and his household and everything
he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that
his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. 11 But stretch out your hand and strike
everything he has, and he
will surely curse you to your face." 12 The LORD said to Satan, "Very
well, then, everything he has is in
your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger."
