Our Father which art in Heaven hallowed be thy Name
Thus did Job continually
There was a Man in the
Land of Uz whose Name
was Job & that Man
was perfect & upright
The Letter Killeth
The Spirit giveth Life
It is Spiritually Discerned
& one that feared God
& one that eschewed Evil & there
was born unto him Seven
Sons & Three Daughters
Job and his family
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name (Matthew 6: 9; Luke 11: 2:
Thus did Job continually (Job i:5)
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters (Job 1: 1-2)
. . . the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life (II Corinthians 3: 6:
. . . they are spiritually discerned (I Corinthians 2: 14:
I beheld the
Ancient of Days
Hast thou considered my servant Job
The Angel of the Divine Presence
I shall see God
Thou art our Father
We shall awake up with thy Likeness
When the Almighty was yet with me, When my Children were about me
There was a day when the Sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord & Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.
Satan before the throne of God
I beheld . . . the Ancient of days (Daniel 7:9)
Hast thou considered my servant Job (Job 1: 8)
Note: This phrase does not appear in the Bible. It signifies Satan, who presents himself before the Lord (Job 1: 6). The Hebrew letters beneath his name, however, identify him as "King Jehovah," Job's false God.
. . . shall I see God (Job 19: 26)
. . . thou art our father (Isaiah 64: 8)
. . . when I awake, with thy likeness (Psalm 17:19)
When the Almighty was yet with me, when my children were about me (Job 29:5)
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them (Job 1:6)
The Fire of God is
fallen from Heaven.
And the Lord said unto Satan Behold All that he hath is in thy Power
Thy Sons & thy Daughters were eating & drinking Wine in their eldest Brothers house & behold there came a great wind from the Wilderness & smote upon the four faces of the house & it fell upon the young Men & they are Dead

Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead (Job 1:18-19)
And there came a Messenger unto Job & said The Oxen were plowing & the Sabeans came down & they have slain the Young Men with the Sword
Going to & fro in the Earth
& walking up & down in it
And I only am escaped alone to tell thee
While he was yet speaking there came also another & said
The fire of God is fallen from heaven & hath burned up the flocks & the
Young Men & consumed then; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee
The messengers tell Job of his misfortunes
And there came a Messenger unto Job, and said, The Oxen were plowing . . . And the Sabeans fell upon them . . . yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword (Job 1:14-15)
From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it (Job 1:7)
. . . and I only am escaped alone to tell thee (Job 1:15)
While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them, and I only am escaped alone to tell thee (Job 1:16)
Did I not weep for him who was in trouble? Was not my Soul afflicted for the Poor
Behold he is in thy hand: but save his Life
Then went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord
And it grieved him at his heart
Who maketh his Angels Spirits & his Ministers a Flaming Fire
Satan going forth from the presence of the Lord
Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? was not my soul grieved for the poor? (Job 30:25)
Behold he is in thine hand; but save his life (Job 2:6)
So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord (Job 1:12)
. . . and it grieved him at his heart (Genesis 6:6)
Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire (Psalm 104:4)
Naked came I out of my
mothers womb & Naked shall I return thither
The Lord gave & the Lord hath taken away, Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
. . . and smote Job with sore Boils
from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head
Satan smiting Job with boils
Naked came I out of my
mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away, Blessed be the Name of the Lord (Job 1:21)
. . . and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown (Job 2:7)
What! shall we recieve Good at the hand of God & shall we not also recieve Evil
And when they lifted up their eyes afar off & knew him not
they lifted up their voice & wept, & they rent every Man his
mantle & sprinkled dust upon their heads towards heaven
Ye have heard of the Patience of Job and have seen the end of the Lord.
Job's comforters
What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? (Job 2:10)
And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads towards heaven (Job 2:12)

Lo let that night be solitary
and let no joyful voice come therein
Let the Day perish wherein I was Born
And they sat down with him upon the ground seven days & seven
nights & none spake a word unto him for they saw that his grief
was very great
Job's despair
Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein (Job 3:7)
Let the day perish wherein I was born (Job 3:3)
So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great (Job 2:13)
Shall mortal Man be more Just than God? Shall a Man be more Pure than his Maker? Behold he putteth no trust in his Saints & his Angels he chargeth with folly
Then a Spirit passed before my face
the hair of my flesh stood up
The vision of Eliphaz
Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker? Behold he putt no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly (Job 4:17-18)
Then a Spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up (Job 4:15)
But he knoweth the way that I take
when he hath tried me I shall come forth like gold
Have pity upon me! Have pity upon me! O ye my friends for the hand of God hath touched me
Though he slay yet will I trust in him
The Just Upright Man is laughed to scorn
Man that is born of a Woman is of few days & full of trouble
he cometh up like a flower & is cut down, he fleeth also as a shadow
& continueth not. And dost thou open thine eyes upon such a one
& bringest me into judgment with thee
Job rebuked by his friends
But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold (Job 23:10)

My bones are pierced me in the
night season & my sinews
take no rest
My skin is black upon me, and
& my bones are burned
with heat
The triumphing of the wicked
is short, the joy of the hypocrite is
but for a moment
Satan himself is transformed into an Angel of Light & his Ministers into Ministers of Righteousness
With Dreams upon my bed thou scarest me & affrightest me with Visions
Why do you persecute me as God & are not satisfied with my flesh. Oh that my words were printed in a Book that they were graven with an iron pen & lead in the rock for ever For I know that my Redeemer liveth & that he shall stand in the latter days upon the Earth & after my skin destroy thou This body yet in my flesh shall I see God whom I shall see for Myself and mine Eyes shall behold & not Another tho consumed be my wrought Image
Who opposeth & exalteth himself above all that is called God or is Worshipped
Job's dreams
My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my sinews take no rest (Job 30:17)
My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat (Job 30:30)

That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me (Job 19:22-27)
Who opposeth & exalteth himself above all that is called God, or is worshipped (II Thessalonians 2:4)
For God speaketh once yea twice
& Man percieveth it not
In a Dream in a Vision of the Night
in deep Slumberings upon the bed
Then he openeth the ears of Men & sealeth their instruction
That he may withdraw Man from his purpose
& hide Pride from Man
For his eyes are upon
the says of Man & he observeth
all his goings
I am young & ye are very Old wherefore I was afraid
Lo all these things worketh God oftentimes with Man to bring
back his Soul from the pit to be enlightened
with the light of the living
Look unto the heavens & behold the clouds
which are higher than thou
If thou sinnest, what
doest thou against him? . . . If thou be
righteous, what givest thou him?

If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? . . . If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? (Job 35:6-7)
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge
Then the Lord answered Job out of the Whirlwind
Who maketh the Clouds his Chariot & walketh on the Wings of the Wind
Hath the Rain a Father & who hath begotten the Drops of the Dew
The Lord answering Job out of the whirlwind
