Job and his wife, now alone and reduced to poverty, continue to abide by the lawful obligation of charity.  They split their last loaf of bread with a blind beggar.  Satan maintains that Job would react otherwise if he were afflicted in his own body.  Reluctantly, God permits Satan to test Job a second time.
