Testing of Job

Testing of Job

Ephesians 6;12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Psalm 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
"fear of the Lord" = reverential trust, with hatred of evil.
Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7: And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8: And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9: Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10: Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11: But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. 12: And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.
20: Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, 21: And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. 22: In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
7:1 Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling? 2: As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:








Job 19:26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
Psalm 40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

Job 26:5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof. 6: Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering. 7: He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. 8: He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. 9: He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it. 10: He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end. 11: The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof. 12: He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud. 13: By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent. 14: Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

Job 32:1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 2: Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
Job 42:7 And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
10: And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

Zechariah 3:1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. 2: And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
1Peter 5:6: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 8: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10: But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11: To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
