    Is it for nothing that Job has feared God?—Job 1:9.

    When Jehovah confronted Satan with Job’s record of integrity,Satan said the above. Satan
    did not deny that Job was obedient to God. Instead, he questioned Job’s motives. He slyly
    accused Job of serving Jehovah,not out of love, but out of selfish interest. Only Job could answer
    that charge, and he was given the opportunity to do so. Jehovah allowed Satan to bring a series
    of disasters upon Job, one after the other. (Job 1:12-19)

    How
    did Job react to this reversal of circumstances?

    We are told that
    he
    “did not sin or ascribe anything improper to God.â€￾ (Job 1:22)
    Next, Job was disfigured by a
    disgusting disease and then pressued by his wife to curse God and
    die.

    Later, three false comforters
    accused him of misconduct.
    (Job2:11-13; 8:2-6; 22:2, 3) However,
    through all this suffering, Job refused to give up his integrity. (Job2:9, 10) He showed by his faithful
    endurance that Jehovah was the most important Person in his life.
