Job in Bible for Kids
Once upon a time, there was a man who loved God very much and always
turned away from doing bad. His name was Job. Job had seven sons and
three daughters. He owned 7000 sheep, 3000 camels, 500 ox, 500
donkeys, lots of servants and many other nice things. One day the
angels stood in line, waiting to talk to God, and satan was with
them. When it was satan's turn to talk, God asked him, Where have you
been? And satan answered, I have been walking back and forth in the
God said, Have you seen Job? There is nobody like him on all the
earth, he loves God and turns away from bad. Then satan answered
back, Why shouldn't he love God? You have always protected him and
blessed him with everything, but if you took away all that he has,
for sure he would say bad things about you. God said, We will see.
You can take all that Job has, but do not touch him. So, satan left.
One day while Job's children were all eating dinner at their oldest
brother's house, a messenger ran to Job and said, The ox were plowing
and the donkeys were next to them and some bad people came and took
them all and have killed the servants in the field. I am the only one
who got away to tell you! Before he finished, another messenger ran
up and said, Fire has come from the sky and has burned up all the
sheep and the servants with them. I am the only one who got away to
tell you! Before he finished, another messenger ran up and said, some
bad people just took all the camels and the servants with them. I am
the only one who got away to tell you! Before he finished, one more
messenger ran up and cried, Your sons and daughters were eating
dinner and a great wind came out of the wilderness and hit the house
and it fell on your children and the servants, killing them all. I am
the only one who got away to tell you!
Job was so sad. He tore his clothes and shaved his head and fell to
the ground and prayed, The Lord has given, and the Lord has taken
away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. After all that had happened,
Job didn't blame God.
Again there was a day the angels stood in line, waiting to talk to
God, and satan was with them. When it was satan's turn to talk, God
asked him, Where have you been? And satan answered, I have been
walking back and forth in the earth. God said, Have you seen Job?
There is nobody like him on all the earth, he loves God and turns
away from bad. And satan said, Yes, a man will give everything he has
to save his life, but if you take his health, for sure he would say
bad things about you. And God said, he is in your hands, but you may
not kill him.
Then satan went and put sores all over Job, from the top of his head
to the bottom of his feet. Job's wife said to him, Do you still love
God? Curse God, and die. But Job said to her. Should we only receive
good from the hand of God? Job wouldn't blame God.
When three of Job's friends heard all that had happened, they came to
see Job, but when they saw how much pain he was in, none of them
spoke a word for seven days. Then Job began to talk, and he asked,
Why does God let me live in such pain? I have no peace and terrible
things keep happening.
Job's friends came to the conclusion that Job must have done
something wrong to have such bad things happening to him, but Job
never got mad at God, even though he didn't understand why such
terribleness had struck his life.
Then God spoke to Job out of a whirlwind. God reminded Job of all the
wonderful things He created and all the good things around him. He
told Job to forget about his pain and remember his faith in the
goodness of God, even though he couldn't understand everything that
happens in life. Job told God that he knew that nothing was
impossible for God, and that he was sorry if he ever doubted God's
power. Job felt glad that he believed in God, who has such greatness
that no man can understand everything He does.
God healed Job, and because he never blamed God for anything that
happened to him and would never say anything bad about Him, God gave
him seven more sons and three more daughters and twice as much of
everything that he had before. Job lived to be a very old man being
faithful to God. And satan, as always, was wrong. Sometimes things
that happen are just a test of our faith in God.
