Job - was a rich man, respected by friends and neighbours; a good, honest and just person; the father of a happy family; one day all possible unhappiness started to affect his family. Job was to the test: he lost his children, properties and health. He proved his greatness when he suffered all of these meekly. He didn't stop to believe in God, he didn't turn his back on God. Thanks to his dignity and perserverance he got his happiness back. His faith was rewarded.
