Глава 1


Бијаше човјек у земљи Узу по имену Јов; и тај човјек бијаше добар и праведан, и бојаше се Бога, и уклањаше се ода зла.

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil.


И роди му се седам синова и три кћери.

And seven sons and three daughters were born to him.


И имаше стоке седам тисућа оваца и три тисуће камила и пет стотина јармова волова и пет стотина магарица, и чељади веома много; и бијаше тај човјек највећи од свијех људи на истоку.

Also, his possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very large household, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the East.


И синови његови састајаху се и даваху гозбе код куће, сваки свога дана, и слаху те позиваху три сестре своје да једу и пију с њима.

Now his sons would go and feast in their houses, each on his appointed day, and would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them.


И кад би се обредили гозбом, пошиљаше Јов и освећиваше их, и устајући рано приношаше жртве паљенице према броју свијех њих; јер говораше Јов: може бити да су се огријешили синови моји и похулили на Бога у срцу свом. Тако чињаше Јов сваки пут.

So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, "It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts." Thus Job did regularly.


А један дан дођоше синови Божји да стану пред Господом, а међу њих дође и Сотона.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.


И Господ рече Сотони: откуда идеш? А Сотона одговори Господу и рече: проходих земљу и обилазих.

And the LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it."


И рече Господ Сотони: јеси ли видио слугу мојега Јова? нема онакога човјека на земљи, добра и праведна, који се боји Бога и уклања се ода зла.

Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?"

А Сотона одговори Господу и рече: еда ли се узалуд Јов боји Бога?

So Satan answered the LORD and said, "Does Job fear God for nothing?


Нијеси ли га ти оградио и кућу његову и све што има свуда унаоколо? дјело руку његовијех благословио си, и стока се његова умножила на земљи.

"Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.


Али пружи руку своју и дотакни се свега што има, псоваће те у очи.

"But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!"

А Господ рече Сотони: ево, све што има нека је у твојој руци; само на њега не дижи руке своје. И отиде Сотона од Господа.

So the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person." Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.


А један дан кад синови његови и кћери његове јеђаху и пијаху вино у кући брата својега најстаријега,

Now there was a day when his sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house;


Дође гласник Јову и рече: волови ораху и магарице пасијаху покрај њих,

and a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them,

А Савеји ударише и отеше их, и побише момке оштријем мачем; и само ја један утекох да ти јавим.

"when the Sabeans raided them and took them away--indeed they have killed the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you!"


Док овај још говораше, дође други и рече: огањ Божји спаде с неба и спали овце и момке, и прождрије их; и само ја један утекох да ти јавим.

While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them; and I alone have escaped to tell you!"

Докле овај још говораше, дође други и рече: Халдејци у три чете ударише на камиле и отеше их, и побише момке оштријем мачем; и само ја један утекох да ти јавим.

While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "The Chaldeans formed three bands, raided the camels and took them away, yes, and killed the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you!"


Докле овај још говораше, дође други и рече: синови твоји и кћери твоје јеђаху и пијаху вино у кући брата својега најстаријега;

While he was still speaking, another also came and said, "Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house,

А то вјетар велик дође испреко пустиње и удари у четири угла од куће, те паде на дјецу и погибоше; и само ја један утекох да ти јавим.

"and suddenly a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young men, and they are dead; and I alone have escaped to tell you!"

Тада уста Јов и раздрије плашт свој, и остриже главу, и паде на земљу и поклони се,

Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped.


Гласник доноси Јову лоше вести

И рече: го нам изашао из утробе матере своје, го ћу се и вратити онамо. Господ даде, Господ узе, да је благословено име Господње.

Гласник доноси Јову лоше вести

And he said: "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."


Уза све то не сагријеши Јов, нити рече безумља за Бога.

In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.
