God and Satan are hanging out again, and they have the exact same conversation as last time, only god points out that even with all the things Satan has been doing, Job still hasn't cursed him. Satan points out that Job still has his health, so of course he hasn't cursed god. God gives him permission to mess with him some more, so long as he keeps him alive. So Satan gives Job boils so itchy he's reduced to sitting in the ashes scratching himself with a piece of broken pottery.
His wife points out that if he curses god, he'll be put out of his misery, but Job tells her to stop with the crazy talk.
Now Job's three friends, Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar show up to comfort him, which they do by ripping their clothing, pouring dust on their heads, and weeping dramatically. They don't speak for seven days.
