[Illustration: Our Father which art in Heaven hallowed be thy Name

Thus did Job continually

There was a Man in the Land of Uz whose Name was Job. & that Man was perfect & upright & one that feared God & eschewed Evil & there was born unto him Seven Sons & Three Daughters

The Letter Killeth The Spirit giveth Life

It is Spiritually Discerned]

[Illustration: What! shall we receive Good at the hand of God & shall we not also receive Evil

And when they lifted up their eyes afar off & knew him not they lifted up their voices & wept. & they rent every Man his mantle & sprinkled dust upon their heads towards heaven

Ye have heard of the Patience of Job and have seen the end of the Lord]

[Illustration: Lo let that night be solitary & let no joyful voice come therein

Let the Day perish wherein I was Born

And they sat down with him upon the ground seven days & seven nights & none spake a word unto him for they saw that his grief was very great]

[Illustration: Shall mortal Man be more Just than God? Shall a Man be more Pure than his Maker? Behold he putteth no trust in his Saints & his Angels he chargeth with Folly

Then a Spirit passed before my face the hair of my flesh stood up]

[Illustration: But he knoweth the way that I take when he hath tried me I shall come forth like gold

Have pity upon me! Have pity upon me. O ye my friends for the hand of God hath touched me

Though he slay me yet will I trust in him

The Just Upright Man is laughed to scorn
