Isahluko 1

1 Kwakukhona umuntu ezweni lase-Uzi ogama lakhe lalinguJobe; lowo muntu wayengenasici elungile, wayemesaba uNkulunkulu, wabalekela okubi.
2 Wazala amadodana ayisikhombisa namadodakazi amathathu.
3 Impahla yakhe yayiyizimvu eziyizinkulungwane eziyisikhombisa, namakamela ayizinkulungwane ezintathu, namabhangqa angamakhulu ayisihlanu ezinkabi, nezimbongolo zezinsikazi ezingamakhulu ayisihlanu, nezinceku eziningi kakhulu; wayemkhulu lowo muntu kunabo bonke abantu basempumalanga.
4 Amadodana akhe ayehamba enza idili endlini yaleyo naleyo ngosuku lwayo; ayesethuma ebiza odadewabo abathathu ukuba badle, baphuze nawo.
5 Kwathi lapho seziphelile izinsuku zedili lawo, uJobe wathuma wawangcwelisa, wavuka ekuseni, wanikela ngeminikelo yokushiswa njengomumo wawo onke; ngokuba uJobe wathi: “Mhlawumbe amadodana ami onile, amthukile uNkulunkulu ezinhliziyweni zawo.” Wenze njalo uJobe imihla yonke.
6 Kwathi ngelinye ilanga kwafika amadodana kaNkulunkulu ema phambi kukaJehova, kwafika noSathane phakathi kwawo.
7 UJehova wayesethi kuSathane: “Uvelaphi na?” USathane wamphendula uJehova, wathi: “Ekuzuleni emhlabeni nasekuhambahambeni kuwo.”
8 Wayesethi uJehova kuSathane: “Inhliziyo yakho iyiqaphele inceku yami uJobe na? Ngokuba akakho onjengaye emhlabeni, umuntu ongenasici nolungileyo, omesaba uNkulunkulu, obalekela okubi.”
9 USathane wamphendula uJehova, wathi: “UJobe uyamesaba uNkulunkulu ngeze na?
10 Wena awumbiyelanga yini yena nendlu yakhe nakho konke okwakhe nxazonke, wabusisa umsebenzi wezandla zakhe na? Impahla yakhe yandile emhlabeni.
11 Kepha ake welule isandla sakho, uthinte konke anakho, impela uyakukuthuka ebusweni bakho.”
12 Wathi uJehova kuSathane: “Bheka, konke anakho kusesandleni sakho; kuphela kuyena uqobo ungabeki isandla sakho.” Wayesephuma uSathane ebusweni bukaJehova.
13 Kwathi ngolunye usuku lapho amadodana akhe namadodakazi akhe edla, ephuza iwayini endlini yomfowabo oyizibulo,
14 kwafika isithunywa kuJobe, sathi: “Izinkabi bezilima, izimbongolo ziklabile eceleni kwazo,
15 lapho amaSheba etheleka, azithatha; izinceku azibulele ngosiko lwenkemba; mina ngedwa kuphela ngisindile, ukuze ngikubikele.”
16 Esakhuluma lowo, kwafika nomunye, wathi: “Umlilo kaNkulunkulu uwile ezulwini, washisa izimvu nezinceku, waziqeda; mina ngedwa kuphela ngisindile, ukuze ngikubikele.”
17 Esakhuluma lowo, kwafika nomunye, wathi: “AmaKaledi enza amaviyo amathathu, ahlasela amakamela, awathatha, azibulala izinceku ngosiko lwenkemba; mina ngedwa kuphela ngisindile, ukuze ngikubikele.”
18 Esakhuluma lowo, kwafika nomunye, wathi: “Amadodana akho namadodakazi akho ayedla, ephuza iwayini endlini yomfowabo oyizibulo;
19 bheka, kwafika, kwadabula ihlane umoya omkhulu, washaya amagumbi omane endlu, yawa phezu kwezinsizwa, zafa; mina ngedwa kuphela ngisindile, ukuze ngikubikele.”
20 Wayesesukuma uJobe, waklebhula ingubo yakhe, waphucula ikhanda lakhe, wawela emhlabathini, wakhuleka,
21 wathi: “Ngaphuma ngize esizalweni sikamame; ngiyakubuyela khona ngize; uJehova wapha, uJehova uthathile; malibongwe igama likaJehova.”
22 Kukho konke lokho uJobe akonanga, akamthelanga uNkulunkulu okubi.
