Isahluko 2

1 Kwathi futhi ngelinye ilanga afika amadodana kaNkulunkulu, ema phambi kukaJehova; noSathane wafika phakathi kwawo ukuba eme phambi kukaJehova.
2 UJehova wathi kuSathane: “Uvelaphi na?” USathane wamphendula uJehova, wathi: “Ekuzuleni emhlabeni nasekuhambahambeni kuwo.”
3 Wayesethi uJehova kuSathane: “Inhliziyo yakho iyiqaphele inceku yami uJobe na? Ngokuba akakho onjengaye emhlabeni, umuntu ongenasici nolungileyo, omesaba uNkulunkulu, obalekela okubi; usabambelela ekupheleleni kwakhe, noma ungivusele ukumchitha engenacala.”
4 USathane wamphendula uJehova, wathi: “Isikhumba ngesikhumba, yebo, konke umuntu anakho uyakunika ngokuphila kwakhe.
5 Kepha ake welule isandla sakho, uthinte amathambo akhe nenyama yakhe, impela uyakukuthuka ebusweni bakho.”
6 UJehova wayesethi kuSathane: “Bheka, usesandleni sakho; gcina ukuphila kwakhe kodwa.”
7 Wayesephuma uSathane ebusweni bukaJehova, wamshaya uJobe ngamathumba amabi, kusukela ematheni onyawo kuze kufike okhakhayini.
8 Wathatha udengezi ukuzozenwaya ngalo; wayehlezi phakathi komlotha.
9 Wayesethi umkakhe kuye: “Usabambelela ekupheleleni kwakho na? Thuka uNkulunkulu, ufe.”
10 Kepha wathi kuye: “Ukhuluma njengalokhu owesifazane oyisiwula ekhuluma. Siyakwamukela okuhle kuphela kuNkulunkulu, singamukeli nokubi, na?” Kukho konke lokho uJobe akonanga ngomlomo wakhe.
11 Lapho abangane abathathu bakaJobe sebezwe ngakho konke lokho okubi okumehleleyo, bafika kuye bevela, kwaba yilowo nalowo endaweni yakhe: ngu-Elifazi umThemani, noBilidadi umShuhi, noSofari umNahama; bavumelana ukuba baye bamkhalele, bamduduze.
12 Lapho bephakamisa amehlo abo besekude, abamazanga; badazuluka bakhala, baklebhula, kwaba yilowo nalowo ingubo yakhe, bafafaza amakhanda abo ngothuli beluphonsa phezulu.
13 Bahlala phansi naye emhlabathini izinsuku eziyisikhombisa nobusuku obuyisikhombisa, akukhulumanga muntu kuye, ngokuba babona ukuthi usizi lwakhe lwalulukhulu kakhulu.
