Job and his wife (Job 2:9-2:10)

“Then his wife said to him.

‘Do you still persist in your integrity?

Curse God!

Then die!

But he said to her.

‘You speak as any foolish women would speak.

Shall we receive the good at the hand of God?

Shall we not receive the bad?’

In all this, Job did not sin with his lips.”

His wife, who had been saved, told him to curse God and die. She told him to forget about his integrity. However, he told her she was speaking like a foolish woman. He reminded her that they received good from God. Why would they nor receive bad from him? No matter what, Job did not sin with his lips.  Once again, like the female Eve in Genesis, chapter 3, his wife tried to tempt Job to give up, curse God and die.
