Job 1:19-21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

19 and suddenly a great wind came from across the desert and smashed the four corners of the house. It fell upon the young people and they are dead; I alone have escaped to tell you.”

Job’s Reaction. 20 Then Job arose and tore his cloak and cut off his hair. He fell to the ground and worshiped. 21 He said,

“Naked I came forth from my mother’s womb,
    and naked shall I go back there.[a]
The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;
    blessed be the name of the Lord!”


  1. 1:21 Go back there: to the earth; cf. Gn 2:7; see note on Sir 40:1.
