There once was a man named Job who lived in the land of Uz. He was blameless—a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil. Job 1:1 NLT

As long as I live, while I have breath from God, my lips will speak no evil, and my tongue will speak no lies. Job 27:3-4 NLT

Then Job replied to the LORD, I am nothing—how could I ever find the answers? I will cover my mouth with my hand. I have said too much already. I have nothing more to say.” Job 40:3-5 NLT

I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. Job 42:5 NLT

I searched for a man among them who would build up a wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. Ezekiel 22:30 NASB

We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. For instance, you know about Job, a man of great endurance. You can see how the Lord was kind to him at the end, for the Lord is full of tenderness and mercy. James 5:11 NLT
