0 Job : Women

And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power. 1:12

Trivia: What did Job's wife tell him to do to retain his integrity?

Job : Women (4)

  1. Job's wife rightly says that if Job is to keep his integrity, then he should curse God (for playing vicious games with Satan) and die. Job replies that she is talking like a "foolish woman." 2:9-10
  2. Speaking of births, Job says: "Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean. Not one." So according to the Bible, women are dirty (sinful), giving birth is dirty (sinful), and the newborn baby is dirty (sinful). 14:4
  3. "How can he be clean that is born of a woman?"
    Women are inherently dirty and sinful, so their offspring are 'unclean' as well. 25:4
  4. After God and Satan get done tormenting Job, God gave Job even more stuff than he had before, including children. God gave Job another set of 10 kids, with even prettier daughters! 42:13-15
