(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Iob, and that man was perfect and vpright, and one that feared God, and eschewed euill.

2 And there were borne vnto him seuen sonnes, and three daughters.

3 His substance also was seuen thousand sheepe, and three thousand camels, and fiue hundred yoke of oxen, and fiue hundred shee asses, and a very great houshold; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the East.

4 And his sonnes went and feasted in their houses, euery one his day, and sent and called for their three sisters, to eate and to drinke with them.

5 And it was so, when the dayes of their feasting were gone about, that Iob sent and sanctified them, and rose vp early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: For Iob said, It may be that my sonnes haue sinned, and cursed God in their hearts: Thus did Iob continually.

6 Now there was a day, when the sons of God came to present themselues before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

7 And the Lord said vnto Satan, Whence commest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and sayde, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking vp and downe in it.

8 And the Lord sayd vnto Satan, Hast thou considered my seruant Iob, that there is none like him in the earth? a perfect and an vpright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth euill?

9 Then Satan answered þe Lord, and sayd, Doeth Iob feare God for nought?

10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on euery side? thou hast blessed the worke of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

11 But put foorth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

12 And the Lord said vnto Satan, Behold, all that hee hath is in thy power, onely vpon himselfe put not foorth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

13 And there was a day, when his sonnes and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house:

14 And there came a messenger vnto Iob, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them,

15 And the Sabeans fell vpon them, and tooke them away: yea they haue slaine the seruants with the edge of the sword, and I onely am escaped alone, to tell thee.

16 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heauen, and hath burnt vp the sheepe, and the seruants, and consumed them, and I onely am escaped alone, to tell thee.

17 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Caldeans made out three bands, and fell vpon the camels, and haue caried them away, yea, and slaine the seruants with the edge of the sword, and I onely am escaped alone, to tell thee.

18 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, & said, Thy sonnes, and thy daughters, were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house.

19 And beholde, there came a great winde from the wildernes, and smote the foure corners of the house, and it fell vpon the yong men, and they are dead, and I onely am escaped alone to tell thee.

20 Then Iob arose, and rent his mantle, and shaued his head, and fell downe vpon the ground and worshipped,

21 And said, Naked came I out of my mothers wombe, and naked shall I returne thither: the Lord gaue, and the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the Name of the Lord.

22 In all this Iob sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

David's Job Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 8/30/2015, 7:57pm...

The book of Job is pre-flood in origin. The sons of Adam, called the son of God who namely were the sons of Seth, of a direct lineage of Adam, and like Adam were also long lived, still roamed the Earth. Like Adam they also came before God on a regular basis, just as we do, and on one of those occasions Satan was found amongst them, probably there to cause trouble, and God chose to speak to Satan regarding Job. Satan was not in Heaven before the throne of God as can be seen later in the book of Job, but God engaging Satan on Earth. It is not rocket science but as with many other things, this verse is contorted from something simple into something complex so that it v can be used to justify other incredible theories elsewhere in the Bible. Ask yourself, where does this extra this extra theology about fallen Angels lead to in the plan of God other than to lead weaker Christians away from God. To suggest fallen Angels coming before God on a regular basis is to suggest that they are not fallen.

Nothing can seperate him from the love of God.


Glenn Baker's Job Chapter 1 comment on 7/14/2015, 3:26am...

How ever weathy we become, what ever we may achieve, at any time anything can be taken from us. We need to absorb this fundamental truth. Job understood this he knew that all must be left behind that all that he valued was nothing before the glory of God.


Holy one's Job Chapter 1 comment on 6/22/2015, 1:38pm...

This is a perfect example of being picked out to be picked on. It is also similar to Jesus as he was lead as a lamb to the slaughter. But in the end he rose with all power in his hand and now sits at the right hand I God. We win in the end. He is the victorious one!


Austine's Job Chapter 1 comment on 6/16/2015, 5:34am...

of a truth those who are in the Lord are like mount Zion that can not be move by any situation,condition or news.


Aniekan B Udofia's Job Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 6/09/2015, 3:59am...

Thanks for information. I actually wanted to understand the phrase 'sons of God '. I believe they were angels on assignment to report. May the Holy Spirit shade more light on our hearts.


Dahlia's Job Chapter 1 comment on 5/26/2015, 11:05am...

This is an example of how we suppose to be as children of GOD never ask questions and know matter what the circumstances or situations don 't give up and never blame GOD just ask for STRENGTH to make it through and stand 10 feet tall and be like a VAULT and don 't be Moved by negative people that don 't understand going through


Harold's Job Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 5/21/2015, 10:22am...

I believe that the sons of god are demonic angels who operates in the air, because a part of them did not kept their original estate, the others are made to present themselves to God for accountability.
