Job's Blameless Behavior

8 Job took a broken piece of pottery to scrape himself while sitting among the ashes. 9 Then his wife told him, "Do you remain firm in your integrity? Curse God and die!" 10 But he replied to her, "You're talking like foolish women do. Are we to accept what is good from God but not tragedy?" Throughout all of this, Job did not sin by what he said.
