1 There was a man a in the land of Uz, whose name was b Job; and that man was c blameless and upright, and one who d feared God and 1 shunned evil. 2 And seven sons and three daughters were born to him. 3 Also, his possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very large household, so that this man was the greatest of all the 2 people of the East. 4 And his sons would go and feast in their houses, each on his appointed day, and would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and 3 sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning e and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, "It may be that my sons have sinned and f cursed 4 God in their hearts." Thus Job did regularly.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
