New Defender's Study Bible Notes
2:9 curse God. Satan had claimed he could make Job curse God (Job 1:11; 2:5), and now his own wife is used by Satan to urge him to do just that. Job had lost his wealth and his children, now his health and all his great respect in the community (Job 2:8), and finally even his wife. Yet “in all this did not Job sin with his lips” (Job 2:10).
