Job: A Best First Sentence

Some years ago there was a listing of the ten books with the best first sentences. Moby Dick, “Call me Ishmael.” Tale of Two Cities, “it was the best of times. It was the worst of times.”

This morning I started to read Job. It begins, “There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and turned away from evil.”

Seems quite fitting for today and everyday, for everyone. Just insert a name, yours first.
