Audio Drama Of Story Of Job
Part 4




Again a day came when the sons of Elohim came to
present themselves before him. Satan came also to
present himself before Elohim. Again God
starts the conversation.

Elohim: "From where have you come"?

Heylel: "Going to and fro on the earth, and walking
all around it ".

Elohim: "Have you considered my servant Job? That
there is none like him on earth. He is a perfect and
upright man. One that fears God and hates evil. He
still holds onto his integrity, even though I allowed
you to use direction destruction on him even with
no fault of his own".

Heylel: "Skin for skin, a man will give everything
to stay alive".

Heylel pauses for effect. "Put forth your hand now and
touch his bones and his flesh, and he will curse you to
your face."

Elohim: "He is in your hands, but you can't take his life."

The adversary left the presence of God and went and
afflicted Job with boils from the bottom of his feet to
the top of his head. Job sat down among  the ashes and
took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself.

It had been months since Heylel's initial assault on Job.
And many people had begun think that Job must be a sinner
for all this to come upon him. Now this new thing was just
more proof. It must be that he and his family were great
sinners, they thought. And many would no longer associate
with him.

Jobs wife: "Are you still holding on to all
of that stuff that you believe about Elohim?
Curse him and die."

Job: "You are speaking like the foolish women
speak. Shall we not receive evil at the hands of
the Elohim, as well as the good?"

Out of all this Job did not sin with his lips
 concerning God.

Job had three friends that lived in different
parts of the territory. They heard of all that
happened to Job, and decided on a set time
to go and morn with Job, and comfort him.

These friends were Eliphaz the Temanite,
Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite.

As they approached from a distance, they saw
Job and could not even recognize him. When
they did recognize him they cried, ripped their
mantles and sprinkled dust upon their heads.

Then they sat upon the ground with Job seven
days and seven nights. Not daring to speak a word
to Job because they saw how terribly he was grieved.
Since Job had grieved so long they thought that
this was the least that they could do. Primarily Jobs
three friends like everyone else believed that Job
had sinned, or God would not have allowed this to
happen to him. Job disagreed.

After seven days and seven nights Job opened
 his mouth and cursed his day.
