Lives of Saints - Job the Prophet Christianity - Books
I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

Job the Prophet
   

Apolytikion in the First Tone:
On beholding the riches of Job's virtues, the enemy of the righteous contrived to despoil them; and though he cast down the tower of the Saint's body, he could not plunder the wealth of his spirit, for he found the soul of that blameless one to be fully armed; but as for me, he hath stripped me and led me captive away. Hasten, then, before the end, rescue me from the wily one, O Saviour, and save me.

Kontakion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
Thou wast shown forth as blameless, true, God-fearing, just, and sanctified, O thou much-suffering Prophet, all-glorious servant of God, most righteous Job; by thy valiant endurance and thy patience thou gavest instruction to the world. For this cause we all honour and praise thine all-holy memory.
