The next stop on our journey through the Bible is in the book of Job. Some feel that Job may be the earliest recorded book in the Bible. In any case, Job was a man who lived many, many years ago. He was a very righteous man who was very concerned that all that he did and said would be pleasing to God.
Job had a large family of seven sons and three daughters and was very wealthy. He was well-known where he lived and he had a very happy life. There was one, however - Satan - who hated Job and wanted to make him unhappy.
Satan accused Job to God and said that the only reason that Job was a godly man was because he had everything so good. Satan said that, if God would take away his blessings, Job would then turn against God. Satan wanted Job to curse God so that he would come under God’s righteous judgment.
