Click hear for the reading
Commentary: Job was a man of great wealth, not only monetarily but also with family. Satan wanted to prove that humans are weak, and, at the first sign of trouble, they would be willing to turn their backs on the Lord. God knew Job, knew his heart, and allowed Satan to test him. Note, and take encouragement in the fact that Satan must seek permission from the Lord! God is always in control!
