Job 2:8
Context
Job Loses his Health

1Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. 2And the LORD said to Satan, From where come you? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 3And the LORD said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and eschews evil? and still he holds fast his integrity, although you moved me against him, to destroy him without cause. 4And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yes, all that a man has will he give for his life. 5But put forth your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse you to your face. 6And the LORD said to Satan, Behold, he is in your hand; but save his life. 7So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to his crown. 8And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself with; and he sat down among the ashes. 9Then said his wife to him, Do you still retain your integrity? curse God, and die. 10But he said to her, You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
