Thy Sons and thy Daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house

Blake, William (English, 1757-1827)


Satan sends an infernal hailstorm that kills Job's sheep.  Another storm collapses the roof of the house of Job's eldest son killing him and all his brothers and sisters who had gathered there for a feast.
