(NIV)
A Crippled Woman Healed on the Sabbath

On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the
synagogues,

and a woman was there who had been crippled by a
spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could
not straighten up at all.

When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said
to her,
"Woman, you are set free from your infirmity."

Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she
straightened up and praised God.

Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath,
the synagogue ruler said to the people, "There are six
days for work. So come and be healed on those days,
not on the Sabbath."

The Lord answered him,
"You hypocrites! Doesn't
each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey
from the stall and lead it out to give it water?

Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham,
whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years,
be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?"

When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated,
but the people were delighted with all the wonderful
things he was doing.

Job 2:13

I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.

He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the LORD.

Job's First Test
In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was
Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared
God and shunned evil.

He had seven sons and three daughters,

and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand
camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred
donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was
the greatest man among all the people of the East.  

His sons used to take turns holding feasts in their
homes, and they would invite their three sisters to eat
and drink with them.

When a period of feasting had run its course, Job
would send and have them purified. Early in the
morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each
of them, thinking, "Perhaps my children have sinned
and cursed God in their hearts." This was Job's
regular custom.
One day the angels came to present themselves
before the LORD, and Satan also came with them.

The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?"

Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the
earth and going back and forth in it."

Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my
servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is
blameless and upright, a man who fears God and
shuns evil."

"Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied.

"Have you not put a hedge around him and his
household and everything he has? You have blessed
the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are
spread throughout the land.

But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has,
and he will surely curse you to your face."

The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he
has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay
a finger."

Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.

One day when Job's sons and daughters were feasting
and drinking wine at the oldest brother's house,


a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were
plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby,

and the Sabeans attacked and carried them off. They
put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one
who has escaped to tell you!"

While he was still speaking, another messenger came
and said, "The fire of God fell from the sky and burned
up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one
who has escaped to tell you!"

While he was still speaking, another messenger came
and said, "The Chaldeans formed three raiding parties
and swept down on your camels and carried them off.
They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only
one who has escaped to tell you!"

While he was still speaking, yet another messenger
came and said, "Your sons and daughters were
feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother's
house,

when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert
and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed
on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who
has escaped to tell you!"

At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his
head. Then he fell to the ground in worship

and said:
"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
and naked I will depart.
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away;
may the name of the LORD be praised."

In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with
wrongdoing.
On another day the angels [a] came to present
themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came
with them to present himself before him.

And the LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come
from?"

Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the
earth and going back and forth in it."

Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered
my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he
is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and
shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though
you incited me against him to ruin him without any
reason."

"Skin for skin!" Satan replied. "A man will give all he
has for his own life.

But stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and
bones, and he will surely curse you to your face."

The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, he is in your
hands; but you must spare his life."

So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and
afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his
feet to the top of his head.

Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped
himself with it as he sat among the ashes.

His wife said to him, "Are you still holding on to your
integrity? Curse God and die!"

He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall
we accept good from God, and not trouble?"

In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.
Job's Three Friends
When Job's three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite,
Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard
about all the troubles that had come upon him, they
set out from their homes and met together by
agreement to go and sympathize with him and
comfort him.

When they saw him from a distance, they could hardly
recognize him; they began to weep aloud, and they
tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads.

Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days
and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because
they saw how great his suffering was.
