Nokuti hakuna munhu akafanana naye panyika, munhu akakwana, akarurama, anotya Mwari, achinzvenga zvakaipa." Ipapo Satani akapindura Jehovha, akati, "Jobho anotya Mwari pasina here? 10 Hamuna kumupoteredza here noru­mhanda, iye neimba yake, nezvose zvaa­nazvo, pamativi ose? Makaropafadza ma­basa amaoko ake, uye fuma yake yakawanda panyika. 11 "Asi tambanudzai henyu ruoko rwenyu, zvino, murove zvose zvaanazvo, ipapo iye achakushorai pachena." 12 Jehovha akati kuna Satani, "Ta­rira, zvose zvaanazvo zviri paruoko rwako; asi usatambanudzira ruoko rwako kwaari." Naizvozvo Satani akabva pa­mberi paJehovha. 13 Zvino rimwe zuva vanakomana vake navanasikana vake vakati vachidya nokunwa waini paimba yomukuru wavo, 14 nhume ikasvika kuna Jobho, ikati, "Mombe dzakanga dzichirima, nembo­ngoro dzichichera kurutivi rwadzo, 15 vaSabea vakadziwira, ndokudzitora, navafudziwo vakavauraya neminondo inopinza; ini ndoga ndakapukunyuka, ndauya kuzokuudzai." 16 Iye akati achitaura, mumwe aka­svikawo, akati, "Moto waMwari waka­bva kudenga, ukapisa makwai navafudzi, ukavapedza; ini ndoga ndapukunyuka, ndauya kuzokuudzai." 17 Iye akati achitaura, mumwe aka­svikawo, akati, "VaKaradhea vakaita ma­poka matatu, vakawira makamera, vakamatora, navafudziwo vakavauraya neminondo inopinza; ini ndoga ndapuku­nyuka, ndauya kuzokuudzai." 18 Iye akati achitaura, mumwe aka­svikawo, akati, "Vanakomana venyu navanasikana venyu vakanga vachidya nokunwa waini mumba momukuru wavo, 19 dutu guru ndokubva kurutivi rwerenje, ndokurova pamusoro pavana, vakafa; ini ndoga ndapukunyuka, ndauya kuzokuudzai." 20 Ipapo Jobho akasimuka, akabva­rura nguvo yake, akaveura vhudzi rake akazviwisira pasi, akanamata, 21 akati, "Ndakabuda mumimba mamai vangu ndiri musvi, ndichadzokerapo ndiri musvi; Jehovha wakapa, Jehovha waka­tora, zita raJehovha ngarikudzwe." 22 pazvinhu izvi zvose Jobho haana kutadza, haana kuti Mwari akaita noupenzi.
