Oilers v. Flames - Job 1:18-22

Yet another teammate came and said, "When your parents and friends were feasting and drinking wine to celebrate, a mighty scorekeeper swept in from the desert and struck the scoresheet of your last game against those villanous Stars. Now, if you don't score a point against the Flames you will be a laughingstock forever!"

At this, Jaques got up and tore his jersey and shaved his French gautee. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said:

"Pointless I came from my mother's womb,
and pointless am I destined to depart.
Yahweh gave and Yahweh has taken away.
May the name of Yahweh be praised."

In all this, Jaques did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.
