I'm thinking of a Bible passage where the narrator has a dream/vision of being before the throne of God. Satan accuses him of being a sinner and unworthy and then God rebukes Satan and tells him to keep silent.

I can remember reading that story, but I don't remember where. Try as I might, I can't find it. Does anyone know where that story appears?

You may be thinking of Zechariah:

Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. And the LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, O Satan! The LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is not this a brand plucked from the fire?"

Zechariah 3:1-2 (RSV)

ah... I forgot about that one. – user1054 Feb 12 '12 at 22:07
hmm. That must be the one. I thought it actually recounted Satan's accusation, but other than that this is exactly what I was thinking. – Stainsor Feb 20 '12 at 21:28

I think you're thinking about the story of Job but you have the story mixed a bit.
