THE BOOK OF JOB: Chapter 1

Job's virtue and riches. Satan by permission from God strippeth him of all his substance. His patience.

chapters: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42
11There was a man in the land of Hus, whose name was Job, and that man was simple and upright, and fearing God, and avoiding evil.vir erat in terra Hus nomine Iob et erat vir ille simplex et rectus ac timens Deum et recedens a malo
12And there were born to him seven sons and three daughters.natique sunt ei septem filii et tres filiae
13And his possession was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a family exceedingly great: and this man was great among all the people of the east.et fuit possessio eius septem milia ovium et tria milia camelorum quingenta quoque iuga boum et quingentae asinae ac familia multa nimis eratque vir ille magnus inter omnes Orientales
14And his sons went, and made a feast by houses, every one in his day. And sending, they called their three sisters, to eat and drink with them.et ibant filii eius et faciebant convivium per domos unusquisque in die suo et mittentes vocabant tres sorores suas ut comederent et biberent cum eis
15And when the days of their feasting were gone about, Job sent to them, and sanctified them: and rising up early, offered holocausts for every one of them. For he said: Lest perhaps my sons have sinned, and have blessed God in their hearts. So did Job all days.cumque in orbem transissent dies convivii mittebat ad eos Iob et sanctificabat illos consurgensque diluculo offerebat holocausta per singulos dicebat enim ne forte peccaverint filii mei et benedixerint Deo in cordibus suis sic faciebat Iob cunctis diebus
16Now on a certain day, when the sons of God came to stand before the Lord, Satan also was present among them.quadam autem die cum venissent filii Dei ut adsisterent coram Domino adfuit inter eos etiam Satan
17And the Lord said to him: Whence comest thou? And he answered and said: I have gone round about the earth, and walked through it.cui dixit Dominus unde venis qui respondens ait circuivi terram et perambulavi eam
18And the Lord said to him: Hast thou considered my servant, Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a simple and upright man, and fearing God, and avoiding evil?dixitque Dominus ad eum numquid considerasti servum meum Iob quod non sit ei similis in terra homo simplex et rectus et timens Deum ac recedens a malo
19And Satan answering, said: Doth Job fear God in vain?cui respondens Satan ait numquid frustra timet Iob Deum
110Hast thou not made a fence for him, and his house, and all his substance round about, blessed the works of his hands, and his possession hath increased on the earth?nonne tu vallasti eum ac domum eius universamque substantiam per circuitum operibus manuum eius benedixisti et possessio illius crevit in terra
111But stretch forth thy hand a little, and touch all that he hath, and see if he bless thee not to thy face.sed extende paululum manum tuam et tange cuncta quae possidet nisi in facie tua benedixerit tibi
112Then the Lord said to Satan: Behold, all that he hath is in thy hand: only put not forth thy hand upon his person. And Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.dixit ergo Dominus ad Satan ecce universa quae habet in manu tua sunt tantum in eum ne extendas manum tuam egressusque est Satan a facie Domini
113Now upon a certain day, when his sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine, in the house of their eldest brother,cum autem quadam die filii et filiae eius comederent et biberent vinum in domo fratris sui primogeniti
114There came a messenger to Job, and said: The oxen were ploughing, and the asses feeding beside them,nuntius venit ad Iob qui diceret boves arabant et asinae pascebantur iuxta eos
115And the Sabeans rushed in, and took all away, and slew the servants with the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell thee.et inruerunt Sabei tuleruntque omnia et pueros percusserunt gladio et evasi ego solus ut nuntiarem tibi
116And while he was yet speaking, another came, and said: The fire of God fell from heaven, and striking the sheep and the servants, hath consumed them; and I alone have escaped to tell thee.cumque adhuc ille loqueretur venit alter et dixit ignis Dei cecidit e caelo et tactas oves puerosque consumpsit et effugi ego solus ut nuntiarem tibi
117And while he also was yet speaking, there came another, and said: The Chaldeans made three troops, and have fallen upon the camels, and taken them; moreover, they have slain the servants with the sword: and I alone have escaped to tell thee.sed et illo adhuc loquente venit alius et dixit Chaldei fecerunt tres turmas et invaserunt camelos et tulerunt eos necnon et pueros percusserunt gladio et ego fugi solus ut nuntiarem tibi
118He was yet speaking, and behold another came in, and said: Thy sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in the house of their eldest brother,loquebatur ille et ecce alius intravit et dixit filiis tuis et filiabus vescentibus et bibentibus vinum in domo fratris sui primogeniti
119A violent wind came on a sudden from the side of the desert, and shook the four corners of the house, and it fell upon thy children, and they are dead: and I alone have escaped to tell thee.repente ventus vehemens inruit a regione deserti et concussit quattuor angulos domus quae corruens oppressit liberos tuos et mortui sunt et effugi ego solus ut nuntiarem tibi
120Then Job rose up, and rent his garments, and having shaven his head, fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,tunc surrexit Iob et scidit tunicam suam et tonso capite corruens in terram adoravit
121And said: Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away: as it hath pleased the Lord, so is it done: blessed be the name of the Lord.et dixit nudus egressus sum de utero matris meae et nudus revertar illuc Dominus dedit Dominus abstulit sit nomen Domini benedictum
122In all these things Job sinned not by his lips, nor spoke he any foolish thing against God.in omnibus his non peccavit Iob neque stultum quid contra Deum locutus est
