Job suffered several catastrophes in one day.

His ten children were killed and his fortune lost. Later, he himself was afflicted with severe boils. Job prayed to die. Finally, the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. God's presence overshadowed even Job's terrible sufferings, and Job was rendered speechless.
