Job Kept Integrity Under Test

Job Kept Integrity Under Test

Job lived in Uz during the time the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt. Though not an Israelite, Job was a loyal worshipper of Jehovah. He had a large family, great wealth, and influence in his community. He was a highly regarded counselor and an impartial judge. He was generous to the poor and needy. Job was a man of integrity.

Job clearly showed that Jehovah was the most important Person in his life

1:8-11, 22; 2:2-5

  • Satan took note of Job’s integrity. He did not deny Job’s obedience to Jehovah; rather, he questioned Job’s motives

  • Satan claimed that Job served Jehovah out of selfish interest

  • To provide an answer to Satan’s charge, Jehovah allowed Satan to attack that faithful man. Satan brought devastation to all aspects of Job’s life

  • When Job maintained his integrity, Satan questioned the integrity of all men

  • Job did not sin or accuse God of doing anything wrong
