In the poetic Book of Job we learn that the trials of Job tested his fear of God, tested if he would avoid evil, and tested whether he would maintain his integrity.
Job’s trials began when the Sabeans fell upon all of Job’s sons and daughters. They killed the servants with the edge of the sword. They kidnapped Job’s eldest sons and stole their livestock. They abducted Job’s ten children. But Job feared God, avoided evil and maintained his integrity.
