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.
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.
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.

Stephanie's Job Chapter 1 comment about verse 1 on 5/07/2013, 7:06am...
The appointed day is their birthday. Job, did not think his children had sinned. He prayed and made sacrifices just in case they sinned. He did not want to leave anything to chance. Satan is/was a son of God. Just like we have good and bad children, God has a bad angel, but unlike us God can handle his business. Job never blamed God. When his wife tried to get Jog to curse/blame God, he told her to get behind me satan. There are times in most of our lives when we may feel, "I wish I was never born", but that does not mean we blame God for anything. Sometimes we are just plain tired of the fight, but, if we stay in Christ and keep the Faith He will renew our strength. Hallelujah!!! Job was an upright and perfect man. That was said by God himself, I have not seen where it is said Job was a strong man, never the less he was strong. Could you have bared those sores all over your body along with all your losses? This book of Job to me is FAITH, STRENGTH, HUMBLENESS, HUMILITY and a TESTIMONY all wrapped in one book. Thank You Jesus.

On verse 6 of job it says that the sons of GOD presented them selves and then satan, You would think in this verse satan is a son of GOD. What do you think.

it really surprises me that everyone thinks job was so strong and never doubted God. i guess you really never read what Job does in the last few chapters. he gave up and like all the rest of weak spirted people blamed God and wished he was never born. I know God is merciful and new what Job was made of so he spared him but just remember job was weak although he held out a lot longer than i would. Still god blessed him in the end.

@okeyomilarry...Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Revelations 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time

Job 1:6; does Satan report us to God?
Mas's Job Chapter 1 comment on 3/12/2013, 11:30am...
There are two different ways of the devil that you are talking about.
First is temptation, which Satan drawing somebody to him, presenting what is delicious and enticing, succulent, what most people would like. And such desires are dormant in us, because they are natural to mankind, only that men often give themselves to them either disorderly, or in excess. Like lusting after a woman, no one will lust after his own wife, because he can have her at any time. Yet there can be a possessive degree of love which is not of God, if we donít keep the boundaries. But that excess comes from within man or woman likewise.
If we donít temperate our needs and desires, we might end up opening a door for the devil to take advantage, and that is often by ourselves.
Second, what Job faced was a pure attack from the devil as the Bible clearly states. God knowing Jobís strength, left him under attack for a while, and finally came to rescue him; silencing the devil thereby.
However both, temptation and/or attack are always in the limits of the bearable, 1 Corinthians 10:13.
God bless you.
Earl's Job Chapter 1 comment about verse 8 on 3/12/2013, 7:49am...
In James 1:12-15, Let no man say when he is tempted I am tempted of God. In Job 1:8, is there a contradiction there or is it simply put that man is tempted when he drawn away of his own lust and God simply allows test and trials to come upon. The main question is People at times will ask, why did God allow this to happen or why does bad things happen to good people? Thank you for your reply.
