Job 2:1-2 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

6 Satan hath permission to afflict Job. 9 His wife tempteth him to forsake God. 11 His three friends visit him.

And on a day the [a]children of God came and stood before the Lord, and [b]Satan came also among them, and stood before the Lord.

Then the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From compassing the earth to and fro, and from walking in it.
