Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about introductory prose and Job's prologue (curses and complaint). There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job. That man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and shunned evil. His possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred she-asses, and a very large number of servants; that man was greater than all the people of the East. Rising early in the morning, he would make burnt offerings, according to the number of them all, for Job said, 'Perhaps my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts'. This is what Job always used to do.
