1And you will be astonished, my children, when you hear what happened next. 1 Lit. ‘Hear, my children, and marvel’. 2For as soon as I had gone into my house and had 3secured my doors, I gave orders to my door-keepers, If anyone comes for me to-day, do not tell me about it, but say, He is not available; for he is indoors dealing with urgent business. 4And while I was indoors, Satan disguised himself as a beggar and knocked at the door. 5And he said to the girl at the door, Tell Job I want to see him. 6,7The girl came in and told me this. And she was instructed to make it clear that I was not at the moment available.
