Job 2 - World English Bible with Hebrew
Law History Wisdom Prophets Gospels Acts Epistles Apocalyptic
1 Again it happened on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Yahweh, that Satan came also among them to present himself before Yahweh.
1 וַיְהִ֣י הַיֹּ֔ום וַיָּבֹ֙אוּ֙ בְּנֵ֣י הָֽאֱלֹהִ֔ים לְהִתְיַצֵּ֖ב עַל־יְהוָ֑ה וַיָּבֹ֤וא גַֽם־הַשָּׂטָן֙ בְּתֹכָ֔ם לְהִתְיַצֵּ֖ב עַל־יְהוָֽה׃
2 Yahweh said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered Yahweh, and said, "From going back and forth in the earth, and from walking up and down in it."
2 וַיֹּ֤אמֶר יְהוָה֙ אֶל־הַשָּׂטָ֔ן אֵ֥י מִזֶּ֖ה תָּבֹ֑א וַיַּ֨עַן הַשָּׂטָ֤ן אֶת־יְהוָה֙ וַיֹּאמַ֔ר מִשֻּׁ֣ט בָּאָ֔רֶץ וּמֵהִתְהַלֵּ֖ךְ בָּֽהּ׃
3 Yahweh said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? For there is none like him in the earth, a blameless and an upright man, one who fears God, and turns away from evil. He still maintains his integrity, although you incited me against him, to ruin him without cause."
3 וַיֹּ֨אמֶר יְהוָ֜ה אֶל־הַשָּׂטָ֗ן הֲשַׂ֣מְתָּ לִבְּךָ֮ אֶל־עַבְדִּ֣י אִיֹּוב֒ כִּי֩ אֵ֨ין כָּמֹ֜הוּ בָּאָ֗רֶץ אִ֣ישׁ תָּ֧ם וְיָשָׁ֛ר יְרֵ֥א אֱלֹהִ֖ים וְסָ֣ר מֵרָ֑ע וְעֹדֶ֙נּוּ֙ מַחֲזִ֣יק בְּתֻמָּתֹ֔ו וַתְּסִיתֵ֥נִי בֹ֖ו לְבַלְּעֹ֥ו חִנָּֽם׃
4 Satan answered Yahweh, and said, "Skin for skin. Yes, all that a man has will he give for his life.
4 וַיַּ֧עַן הַשָּׂטָ֛ן אֶת־יְהוָ֖ה וַיֹּאמַ֑ר עֹ֣ור בְּעַד־עֹ֗ור וְכֹל֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר לָאִ֔ישׁ יִתֵּ֖ן בְּעַ֥ד נַפְשֹֽׁו׃
5 But put forth your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will renounce you to your face."
5 אוּלָם֙ שְֽׁלַֽח־נָ֣א יָֽדְךָ֔ וְגַ֥ע אֶל־עַצְמֹ֖ו וְאֶל־בְּשָׂרֹ֑ו אִם־לֹ֥א אֶל־פָּנֶ֖יךָ יְבָרֲכֶֽךָּ׃
6 Yahweh said to Satan, "Behold, he is in your hand. Only spare his life."
6 וַיֹּ֧אמֶר יְהוָ֛ה אֶל־הַשָּׂטָ֖ן הִנֹּ֣ו בְיָדֶ֑ךָ אַ֖ךְ אֶת־נַפְשֹׁ֥ו שְׁמֹֽר׃
7 So Satan went forth from the presence of Yahweh, and struck Job with painful sores from the sole of his foot to his head.
7 וַיֵּצֵא֙ הַשָּׂטָ֔ן מֵאֵ֖ת פְּנֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה וַיַּ֤ךְ אֶת־אִיֹּוב֙ בִּשְׁחִ֣ין רָ֔ע מִכַּ֥ף רַגְלֹ֖ו עַד וְעַ֥ד קָדְקֳדֹֽו׃
8 He took for himself a potsherd to scrape himself with, and he sat among the ashes.
8 וַיִּֽקַּֽח־לֹ֣ו חֶ֔רֶשׂ לְהִתְגָּרֵ֖ד בֹּ֑ו וְה֖וּא יֹשֵׁ֥ב בְּתֹוךְ־הָאֵֽפֶר׃
9 Then his wife said to him, "Do you still maintain your integrity? Renounce God, and die."
9 וַתֹּ֤אמֶר לֹו֙ אִשְׁתֹּ֔ו עֹדְךָ֖ מַחֲזִ֣יק בְּתֻמָּתֶ֑ךָ בָּרֵ֥ךְ אֱלֹהִ֖ים וָמֻֽת׃
10 But he said to her, "You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?" In all this Job didn't sin with his lips.
10 וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֵלֶ֗יהָ כְּדַבֵּ֞ר אַחַ֤ת הַנְּבָלֹות֙ תְּדַבֵּ֔רִי גַּ֣ם אֶת־הַטֹּ֗וב נְקַבֵּל֙ מֵאֵ֣ת הָאֱלֹהִ֔ים וְאֶת־הָרָ֖ע לֹ֣א נְקַבֵּ֑ל בְּכָל־זֹ֛את לֹא־חָטָ֥א אִיֹּ֖וב בִּשְׂפָתָֽיו׃
11 Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that had come on him, they each came from his own place: Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite, and they made an appointment together to come to sympathize with him and to comfort him.
11 וַֽיִּשְׁמְע֞וּ שְׁלֹ֣שֶׁת׀ רֵעֵ֣י אִיֹּ֗וב אֵ֣ת כָּל־הָרָעָ֣ה הַזֹּאת֮ הַבָּ֣אָה עָלָיו֒ וַיָּבֹ֙אוּ֙ אִ֣ישׁ מִמְּקֹמֹ֔ו אֱלִיפַ֤ז הַתֵּימָנִי֙ וּבִלְדַּ֣ד הַשּׁוּחִ֔י וְצֹופַ֖ר הַנַּֽעֲמָתִ֑י וַיִּוָּעֲד֣וּ יַחְדָּ֔ו לָבֹ֥וא לָנֽוּד־לֹ֖ו וּֽלְנַחֲמֹֽו׃
12 When they lifted up their eyes from a distance, and didn't recognize him, they raised their voices, and wept; and they each tore his robe, and sprinkled dust on their heads toward the sky.
12 וַיִּשְׂא֨וּ אֶת־עֵינֵיהֶ֤ם מֵרָחֹוק֙ וְלֹ֣א הִכִּירֻ֔הוּ וַיִּשְׂא֥וּ קֹולָ֖ם וַיִּבְכּ֑וּ וַֽיִּקְרְעוּ֙ אִ֣ישׁ מְעִלֹ֔ו וַיִּזְרְק֥וּ עָפָ֛ר עַל־רָאשֵׁיהֶ֖ם הַשָּׁמָֽיְמָה׃
13 So they sat down with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spoke a word to him, for they saw that his grief was very great.
13 וַיֵּשְׁב֤וּ אִתֹּו֙ לָאָ֔רֶץ שִׁבְעַ֥ת יָמִ֖ים וְשִׁבְעַ֣ת לֵילֹ֑ות וְאֵין־דֹּבֵ֤ר אֵלָיו֙ דָּבָ֔ר כִּ֣י רָא֔וּ כִּֽי־גָדַ֥ל הַכְּאֵ֖ב מְאֹֽד׃
