Old Testament in a year – Day 5

Job 1: 1 - 3: 26

Satan Tests Job
1There was a man named Job, living in the land of Uz, who worshipped God and was faithful to him. He was a good man, careful not to do anything evil.2He had seven sons and three daughters,3and owned 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 1,000 head of cattle, and 500 donkeys. He also had a large number of servants and was the richest man in the East.
4Job's sons used to take it in turns to give a feast, to which all the others would come, and they always invited their three sisters to join them.5The morning after each feast, Job would get up early and offer sacrifices for each of his children in order to purify them. He always did this because he thought that one of them might have sinned by insulting God unintentionally.

Genesis 7: 1 - 9: 29

The Flood
1The LORD said to Noah, “Go into the boat with your whole family; I have found that you are the only one in all the world who does what is right.2Take with you seven pairs of each kind of ritually clean animal, but only one pair of each kind of unclean animal.3Take also seven pairs of each kind of bird. Do this so that every kind of animal and bird will be kept alive to reproduce again on the earth.4Seven days from now I am going to send rain that will fall for forty days and nights, in order to destroy all the living beings that I have made.”5And Noah did everything that the LORD commanded.

Genesis 4: 1 - 6: 22

Cain and Abel
1Then Adam had intercourse with his wife, and she became pregnant. She bore a son and said, “By the LORD's help I have acquired a son.” So she named him Cain.2Later she gave birth to another son, Abel. Abel became a shepherd, but Cain was a farmer.3After some time, Cain brought some of his harvest and gave it as an offering to the LORD.4 Then Abel brought the first lamb born to one of his sheep, killed it, and gave the best parts of it as an offering. The LORD was pleased with Abel and his offering,5but he rejected Cain and his offering. Cain became furious, and he scowled in anger.6Then the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why that scowl on your face?7If you had done the right thing, you would be smiling; but because you have done evil, sin is crouching at your door. It wants to rule you, but you must overcome it.”

Genesis 1: 1 - 3: 24

The Story of Creation
1In the beginning, when God created the universe,2the earth was formless and desolate. The raging ocean that covered everything was engulfed in total darkness, and the Spirit of God was moving over the water.3 Then God commanded, “Let there be light” — and light appeared.4God was pleased with what he saw. Then he separated the light from the darkness,5and he named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night”. Evening passed and morning came — that was the first day.
