Book of Job Chapter 2 Summary

No, Not More…

  • God gets back to bragging about Job, and Satan, once again, doesn't buy it.
  • This time, God gives Satan permission to hurt Job physically, something he wouldn't let him do last time. Just don't kill him, God says.
  • Satan's method of choice? Give Job sores from his tippy-toes to his noggin. 
  • Job's wife apparently doesn't find this attractive, because she suggests that he curse God and die. But Job refuses to be disloyal.
  • Job's buddies Eliphaz, Zophar, and Bildad come to visit and chill with him while he rolls around in ash and sackcloth. This is standard all procedure, don't worry.
