BIBLE (1.070 verses):
KORAN (6 verses): Suras al-An'am 6:84 -- al-Anbiya' 21:83 -- Sad 38:41-44
BIBLICAL SAMPLE: We quote here the beginning of the trouble that Job faced, when Satan received the permission from the LORD to test the godliness of Job in Job 1:6-12 -- “6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, ‘From where have you come?’ Satan answered the LORD and said, ‘From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.’ 8 And the LORD said to Satan, ‘Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?’ 9 Then Satan answered the LORD and said, ‘Does Job fear God for no reason? 10 Have you not put a hedge around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But stretch out your hand and touch all that he has, and he will curse you to your face.’ 12 And the LORD said to Satan, ‘Behold, all that he has is in your hand. Only against him do not stretch out your hand.’ So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.”
KORANIC SAMPLE: This passage seems to have influenced the following verse in the Koran: Sura Sad 38:41 -- “And remember our servant Ayyub (Job), when he called to his Lord, ‘Indeed, Satan has touched me with hardship and torment.’ ” -- The Koran has reduced the 1,070 verses of the book of Job to just 6 verses! And this is one of them.
