"And after four days without movement, Job took up his toilet and great was his relief. But even as he released his burden there came a voice and it was the Lord. And the Lord spoke in a loud voice saying Come unto Me Job. And Job replied saying Oh God, what is it this time, for I have only just sat down. And great was the wrath of the Lord. And He commanded Job to split the winnings and come now unto Him. And great was Job's discomfort. (from 'The Book of Job',Ch.9)
