Job 1:19-21 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

19 Suddenly a powerful wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on the young people so that they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you!”

20 Then Job stood up, tore his robe, and shaved his head.[a] He fell to the ground and worshiped, 21 saying:

Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
and naked I will leave this life.[b]
The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away.
Praise the name of Yahweh.


  1. Job 1:20 This custom demonstrated mourning.
  2. Job 1:21 Lit will return there; Ps 139:13,15
