Job was a very wealthy man, he lived with his family in the land of Uz.
One day... Satan went to God to ask if he could torment Job to test his loyalty to God. Satan said that Job would turn away from God and yell at him. God said yes to prove Satan wrong, but he told Satan not to kill him.
Job found out that his 10 children, servants, and livestock have all died.
Job and his friends Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar sat in silence with him for 7 days to mourn for his loss.
God responds to Job because Job was upset about what he lost.
Job responded to the Lord and said, "I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted"
