 10 My brothers, consider the prophets who have spoken in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering affliction and of patience.

 11 Behold, we count those happy who endure. You have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the outcome from the Lord, that the Lord is full of pity and tender mercy.

Job 1:1

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 [This is the account of a man, Job, whom God designated twice as an upright and perfect man. God allowed Job to be tested by Satan to make him even stronger in his faith, trust, patience, and dedication to God. Job is our example of how to undergo suffering permitted by God for our benefit, which all must endure to be rid of sin. Job lost everything in a matter of minutes: his servants, his wealth, and his sons — all destroyed by Satan to test Job's faith; but he was restored to even greater stature in the end. Job increased God's glory by proving that God's created sons can be totally incorruptible, despite Satan's best attempts to undue God's work. Because Job was afflicted, Job's friends accused him of being evil and ridiculed his claim to righteousness — just like Christendom denies purity or perfection is possible today, and ridicules anyone who states otherwise. Fortunately our trials, though very hard, are not nearly as severe as Job's, whose courage, patience, trust, and faith are recorded to encourage all who seek God and undergo his supernatural suffering; for there is not a son accepted by God who has not undergone severe supernatural chastising, even scourging.

My brothers, consider the prophets who have spoken in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering affliction and of patience. Behold, we count those happy who endure. You have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the outcome from the Lord, that the Lord is full of pity and tender mercy. James 5:10-11.

Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. 1 Pet 4:1-2.

From the Word of the Lord within: "As you read this book, marvel at the knowledge of all of these ancient heathen men, who did not have a single scripture; yet their words are full of fine Christian principles."

 1 There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one who feared God, and eschewed [hated, avoided, shunned] evil.
