Vir erat in terra Hus nomine Job simplex et rectus ac timens Deum:
quem Satan petiit ut tentaret,
et data est ei potestas a Domino in facultates, et in carnem ejus:
perdiditque omnem substantiam ipsius et filios:
carnem quoque ejus gravi ulcere vulneravit.

English.png English translation

There was a man in the land of Hus, simple and upright, and fearing God:
whom Satan petitioned that he might test,
and the Lord gave him power over both [Job’s] capabilities and his flesh:
and [Satan] destroyed all his substance and his children:
and inflicted his flesh with a grievous ulcer.
