    Well,i believe God allowed satan to tempt and try job,to show His power.Not satans power,but God 's power.God does and allows things in our lives sometimes that we will have opportunity to glorify Him.He wants to see what we 're really made of so to speak.He wanted to show the devil that job was a sincere man of God and could not be moved.

    i beleive the sons of god were the fallen angels, because god is holy, they were not before god they were before the lord,satan does not have access to god because he is not holy,he 's sinful, just like we have to be pure to be before god satan would have to be too and he was not that 's why he said he was in an out of earth,he was doing evil then.
  • Raphael Wambulwa
    It has opened my insight 1.Our characters is what God is proud of. 2.Even not our Family 3.He was constant committed for observing God s Law obedience is better than sacrifice 4.He used to cleanse his family

    Why did the conversation between thr LORD, and the sons of God, only state what transpired between Satan and our LORD? Surely the others present would have understood the cunning comment Satan made in responce to the praise of Job by our LORD. Job was surely an innocent, however, if the sons of God were angels, why did they not take alert to the sarcastic comments of Satan? I believe that the sons of God are human. . Otherwise the Lord would have had God intervene in the test of Job. This was surely a test of Jobs Faith. Even more, this was a test of our Lord 's purity of knowledge by Satan. Even though the Lord and our God favored Jobs faith, Satan took a lifetime away from Job to test the word of the Lord. The game of chess between our Lord and Satan emphasized the value of the pawn Job , before all of Gods sons. A lesson of faith discussed between two powerful spirits... check by Satan ... and check mate by God. Quality control known in modern day terms.

    I like the way job expressed his faith to God even if go through hard time we have to put ourselves to God because he is the only one who knows our problms.
  • Genesis says after the birth of Seth that men began to call on the name of the Lord. Every usage of the term "sons of God " used in the Bible refers to fleshly followers of God. Look them all up and read them in context. The two passages in Job are the only references on which many commentaries have concluded that this term must refer to angels. When you consider that Adam equals the created ruddy one, mankind, in the Garden walked with God daily. Cain was distressed because he was sent away from Gods face, he no longer could come before God. I believe he was the first of what would be called the sons of men, those who are not followers of God. Look up all the references to sons of men, there are a lot, read them in context. Job does not say as does not other place in scripture that Satan or any angel is a son of God. New Testament is more specific that the sons of God are those who follow after Jesus. See Matthew 5 9, Romans 8 14. Galatians 3 26
  • It 's interesting that the word Satan is found about 49 times in the entire bible. Revelation makes the link, Satan is the devil, the Dragon that serpent. The sons of God are men that worship God, at no time has God ever called angels his sons read in Hebrews. All believers become sons of God, we receive the adoption of sons.
  • Pst Joseph wahome for verse 21
    Job 1 21 is a word that every human race should actually know and embrace in the whole world,especially kenyans and their leaders,those killings that we are seeing is not supposed to be there if only we know this word,people being proud and selfish after acquiring some little wealth,it teaches us to be humble
  • Ras Kin for verse 21
    God almighty has plan over his people.Through the suffering we have to get good frm it.And through our faith in God we can 't be tested behold our strength.
  • Namatai
    even in the midst of trouble,lets keep our focus on God.
  • Charles yarbrough
    this book and chapter is a great example about what happens to people when they believe in God. in john the pharasees said that the whole world was going after them. but in acts it says that in the end there were only 120 left. no matter what happens keep seeking and praying to God
  • P.M.B. for verse 6
    If these were angels, then you are saying that we become angels when we give our lives over to God, because John ch. 1 says that God gives us the power to become the sons of God?
  • Joyce Wright
    I have had the Job experience in my life it 's really awesome to have that kind of faith and trust in God. I didn 't handle it as strong and faithful as Job did, I complained and told God that I was done and He put me here just to suffer when in all actuality All God is doing is strengthening me, settings stable immovable foundations in my life, I never had as much as Job did but now I know why, it 's because I couldn 't handle it before now. Now I have the full concept of seeking first the Kingdom of God and all of His righteousness. God is truly ajjealous GOD and he makes no mistakes, that 's why we are not to lean on our own understanding but in all our ways acknowledged Him, we cannot trust in thing or other people, only GOD can save our souls and bless us to spend eternity with Him. God just want to know that He can trust us to be good Stuarts over what He gives us on this earth. Don 't let things make you, be defined by who you are in CHRIST JESUS and you SHALL have a great life. God bless all.

    Job is one of the best books in the bible and it is about todays man I loved it so I started reading and never stopped until finished everyone should read Job a sister in Christ Jean
  • The scripture plainly states the Sons of God were presenting before Him the scripture also states that the Sons of God found the women of earth pleasurable Jesus is the only begotten Son of God the Perfect Lamb of God The sad thing is that scripture says what it says and men try to take the scripture and play God making His word say what they want to profess to know the mind of God If we take scripture at its word and stop with all the self edifying teaching and use it to serve God instead of trying to be God I believe that maybe we could be of one mind If what you are saying does not edify God but makes you feel intelligent then I think you should take a long look at your motives I pray for us all and may God bless us all
  • Fiona
    Rodney Smith how can you say that The bible is both about people who have had experiences with Yahweh and a code for us to live by I can say my life has been very much like Jobs and Josephs
  • Margret amutenya
    Who tempted Job Do God also have a share in destroyin Jobs treasure vers 16 and 21
  • Primitivo Soriano Jr. for verse 1
    I need some verses the conversation from Job and tho his wife
  • Rodney smith for verse 6
    The book of Job is not an historical event because Job had no mother and no father God simply allows the wicked human beings to go to and fro to torment the righteous of which Job is an example Only human beings were ever given dominion over all the earth in Genesis 1 26 and not any angelic spirit beings The word satan means adversary and all throughout scripture the adversary or satan of the righteous is the wicked There is nothing supernatural about satan which is just a word that means adversary

    i look up to this charpter in tyms of hardship and it gives me strength
  • Margret Amutenya
    Job bear this in mind that His God will remain His God even in times of tribulations thats why you c when he heard of everyhting that have happened he felt down upon the groud and worshipd God do we continu worshipng God even in times of weakness Only if we fear God and trust Him as this man did
  • Josephine
    Job was a patient man who loved God Even though his family and all his earthly possessions were taken from him he still stayed faithful to God
  • Mark
    I have always wondered about these verses Where was it that the sons of God came to present themselves and satan was able to be there too where was this
  • Pius mintah for verse 6
    yes.the sons of god are the angels.
  • Bryan Meltzer for verse 20
    I like it
  • Brianna for verse 5
    Job was certaily a good servant of Jehovah God. He learned to be a good father from his heavenly father Jehovah. Job would wake up every morning and make sacrafices in behalf of his family, so that they could be guitless before God. A good example for fathers today to be proactive in the spiritual upbringing of children! If I ever have kids I will remember the example of Job, and try to be a good mother and raise them to be faithful servants of Jehovah with a happy life.
  • Kimutai ngeno
    Friends&relatives might forsakened you but, God never abandoned you..
  • Paulette Dean
    I use what Job went through back then into the now relm if we would remain faithful while we are going through are hard time and give God thanks and don't loose focus he will bless us double for our trouble. just remain focus and not loose sight of the prize we have something that the world cant give and the world cant take away and that God's spirit in us.
