The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.”
So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head. Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes.
His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!”
He replied, “You are talking like a foolish a woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” …Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him.
Job 2:6-10 and Job 13:15
When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered,
I was senseless and ignorant;I was a brute beast before You.
Yet I am always with You; You hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with Your counsel,and afterward You will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
“Father, if You are willing, take this cup from me;
yet not my will, but Yours be done.”
“Let me remember when it hurts that love will have the final word.”
