Job (1631)


Job (1631)
Jan Lievens 1607 – 1674
oil on canvas (172 × 149 cm) — 1631
Job 2:9 - Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.
God allowed Satan to test his servant Job, "a perfect and an upright man". Satan gives Job painful boils and takes his cattle and children. Jan Lievens here shows Job sitting on a dunghill. Job's pose and worn body show his suffering. Behind him his wife scorns him for stubbornly retaining his integrity.
