Throughout the book, Job, his wife, and his friends speculate on why he, an upright man, suffers. Job accuses God of being unjust and not operating the world according to principles of justice, and his friends believe that Job's sin caused his suffering.

Job. The verbal fireworks of the dialogue between Job and his friends and beauty of the poetry on wisdom of the divine speeches are found in the Book of Job.

Having lost everything, confused and angry, Job refuses to reject his faith. In order to understand the nature of God, he questions if God make good people suffer and what has he lined up at Cited by:   One little help to grasping the book of Job for me was the comment Job and his friends book one of Job’s friends to the effect that, “The hypocrites hope shall perish.” I derived three points from that statement: I.

The fellow who made the statement was a hypocrite. His hope perished. III. Best thing that ever happened to him.

Eliphaz from Teman, Bildad from Shuah, and Zophar from Naamah were three of Job's friends, and they heard about his troubles. So they agreed to visit Job and comfort him. Good News Translation Three of Job's friends were Eliphaz, from the city of Teman, Bildad, from the land of Shuah, and Zophar, from the land of Naamah.

Zophar the Naamathite. Surprise, surprise, Zophar follows the same line as Job and his friends book two friends: God is just, and Job must have done something to offend him.

If God's power is absolute, and God's law is that the righteous are rewarded and the wicked are punished, then Job's predicament is his Job and his friends book fault. The end. The Most Hurtful Comments of Job’s Friends,Barry York - Study from the Bible and be encouraged to grow your faith.

Each time I read through the drama of the Book of Job, some new theme seems to Author: Barry York. Job's Three Friends 12 When they lifted Job and his friends book their eyes from afar, they could barely recognize Job. They began to weep aloud, and each man tore his robe and threw dust into the air over his.

Answer: Job’s three friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, have historically been known for offering lengthy speeches that resulted in their being condemned by God (Job –9).

At one point Job, weary of their unhelpful rhetoric, told them, “You are miserable comforters, all of you!” (Job ). The book of Job begins with a prologue (Job ), which describes a wager between Satan and God, in which Satan (“the adversary”) bets God that Job–a particularly pious man–will abandon his piety and curse God if all his wealth and well-being are taken : Moshe Greenberg.

Job is the first Old Testament book of poetry (the others are Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Lamentations). Although the book of Job is best known for its story, only Job and his friends book of the 42 chapters are narrative.

Job and his friends book The rest are poetic discourses from Job, his friends, a young bystander, and God Himself. Job actually feels like his reputation has been damaged by his views. Social standing is the last thing Job and his friends book away from Job, and his friends essentially turn on him.

Ouch. Questions About Friendship. Do Job's friends respond to his accusations, or are they just trying to shore up their own worldviews. Job English Standard Version (ESV) The Lord Rebukes Job's Friends.

7 After the Lord had spoken these words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “My anger burns against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.

8 Now therefore take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer up. The Book of Job (/ dʒ oʊ b /; Hebrew: אִיּוֹב – ʾIyyōḇ) is a book in the Ketuvim ("Writings") section Job and his friends book the Hebrew Bible (), and the first poetic book in Job and his friends book Old Testament of the Christian Bible.

Addressing the problem of theodicy – the vindication of the justice of God in the light of humanity's suffering – it is a rich theological work setting out a variety of perspectives. Largely a dialogue between Job and his "friends," the Book of Job "contains all sorts of wrong advice and incorrect conclusions as they come from the lips of Job's well- meaning 'comforters.'"11Thus much of the book is human wis- dom, "seemingly logical but actually wrong."File Size: 98KB.

The Book of Job, book of Hebrew scripture that is often counted among the masterpieces of world literature. It is found in the third section of the biblical canon known as the Ketuvim (“Writings”). The book’s theme is the eternal problem of unmerited suffering, and it.

Job was a wealthy but righteous and God-fearing man. God allowed Satan to take away from Job his wealth, his family, and his health. With his three friends Job discussed the problem why a righteous God allows that a righteous man has to suffer innocently.

Job's three friends Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar were not able to understand these ways of God. Job is an unlikely candidate because the book’s message rests on Job’s ignorance of the events that occurred in heaven as they were related to his ordeal. One Talmudic tradition suggests Moses as author since the land of Uz () was adjacent to Midian where Moses lived for 40 years, and he could have obtained a record of the story there.

Although most of the book consists of the words of Job and his friends, Job himself was not the author. We may be sure that the author was an Israelite, since he (not Job or his friends) frequently uses the Israelite covenant name for God (Yahweh; NIV “the Lord”).

In the prologue (chs. 1–2), divine discourses (—) and epilogue. The Book of Job was an important influence upon Blake's writings and art; Blake apparently identified with Job, as he spent his lifetime unrecognized and impoverished.

Harold Bloom has interpreted Blake's most famous lyric, The Tyger, as a revision of God's rhetorical questions in the Book of Job concerning Behemoth and Leviathan.

This time, Job is afflicted with horrible skin sores. His wife encourages him to curse God and to give up and die, but Job refuses, struggling to accept his circumstances. Three of Job’s friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him, sitting with Job in silence for seven days out of respect for his mourning.

The poetic discourse of Job and his friends is unique in its own right. The lengthy conversation has the unified voice and consistent style of poetry, but it is a dialogue between characters who alter their moods, question their motives, change their minds, and undercut each other with sarcasm and innuendo.

God rebukes Job's three friends and orders them to make a sacrifice. Job prays for God's forgiveness of them and God accepts his prayer.

At the end of the book, God gives Job twice as much wealth as he had before, along with seven sons and three daughters. After that, Job lived more : Jack Zavada.

Today, I finished my first book of the year: On Job: God-Talk and the Suffering of the Innocent by Gustavo Gutiérrez and wow, was this one a doozy. It definitely gets 5 stars from me.

Jobs burden, reconciling unimaginable suffering with the idea of a just God, is a task one that few preachers or academics are bold enough to tackle/5. God allowed satan to put Job through all that to help Job’s lost ‘friends’. His friends spent most of The Book of Job blaming God and blaming Job.

They really kicked him hard when he was down. Read Job KJV. In the end, Zophar is rebuked by God along with his two friends: “My anger burns against you for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has” (Job ). Zophar last appears in verse 9, where we find him offering the sacrifices God had required: “So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did what.

Job became very sick. His body was covered with sores. He wished he had not been born. Job’s wife asked if he still believed God was good.

Job said he did. Job said God gave people good things. God sometimes let bad things happen to them. Sometimes bad things happened to good people. Job9–10; – What upset God about Job’s friends is that they misrepresented Him completely. They argued with Job from the humanist position based on human experience, human tradition, and human merit.

They were false in their logic and wrong in their conclusions. They believed that man must do things to earn God’s favor and therefore suffering is a sign.

I think that the main topic of Job is not suffering. The reason why Job suffered is clarified at the beginning of the book. The question can be asked in the other way: why God shall be worshiped under any circumstances, i.e., under rich or poor, h.

Read - When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement Author: Dean Rhine.

(2) Job: Job rebukes his friends for tormenting and insulting him, affirms that God has wronged him, urges his friends to have pity on him, and affirms that God will prove his innocence after his death and judge his friends c) Zophar & Job II: (1) Zophar: Zophar accuses Job of insulting him and reminds him that the wicked.

In this Bible story from the book of Job, there is a wealthy man named Job residing in an area called Uz with his extended family and vast flocks. He is “blameless” and “upright,” constantly mindful to live in a righteous manner ().God brags to Satan about Job’s virtue, but Satan contends that Job is only righteous because God has favored him generously.

At the end of chapter 2 Job is visited by his three friends. We often hear these friends described as “miserable counselors” but this is an unfair and overly simplistic description. Francis Andersen says more reasonably: They were true friends, bringing to Job’s lonely ash-heap the compassion of a silent presence.

The thing that prompts Job's friends to make their speeches is his outburst in chapter 3. After seven days of silence with his friends (and probably weeks of suffering before they came), "Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. And Job said, 'Let the day perish wherein I was born'" (–3).

Job prays for the very friends who hurt him when he was suffering, for the ones who (wrongly) told him that he brought his own suffering on himself, who thus blamed him for his own suffering. This was very cruel of the friends ­ we sometimes call it "adding insult to injury ­ and God clearly disapproves of it in the friends.

Job intercedes for his friends. After the Lord had convinced and humbled Job, and brought him to repentance, he owned him, comforted him, and put honour upon him.

The devil had undertaken to prove Job a hypocrite, and his three friends had condemned him as a wicked man; but if God say, Well done, thou good and faithful servant, it is of little.

Her question to Job surely starts his own process of deeper introspection that we get later in the book. Some have looked at the possibility Author: Alexander Goldberg. With such power, Satan strikes Job with painful boils (cf.

; ; ) over his entire body. Job's wife lost what faith she might have had, and told him to curse God and die. Job, however, refuses to sin with his lips (). At this point, three of Job's friends (Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar) come to mourn and try to comfort him.

The book of Job is illustrative of this use. Thirty-one times in the book the name EL Shaddai is found. There is no punishment involved with God’s dealing with Job, instead he is bringing him to a more perfect understanding of Himself.
