Jobs retired at the end of August and died about six weeks later. Now, just weeks after his death, you can open the book that bears his name and read about his youth, his promise, and his relentless press to by: Next, Satan struck Job with this terrible sickness.

Job suffered very much. That is why Job’s wife told him: ‘Curse God and die.’ But Job would not do it. Also, three false friends came and told him he had lived a bad life. But Job kept faithful. This made Jehovah very happy, and afterward he blessed Job, as you can see in the picture.
