    (f) Job and Jobab. An appendix to the Book of Job in the Septuagint identifies Job with King Jobab of Edom (Gen. xxxvi, 33). Nothing in the book shows that Job was ruler of Edom; in Hebrew the two names have nothing in common. Eliphaz, Baldad and Sophar. The most important of Job's three friends was Eliphaz of Theman. In a single day, the patriarch Job lost all ten of his children, all of his livestock, and many of his servants. In chapter 1 of the book of Job, we learn that as one of Job’s servants was telling him about a group of raiders (the Sabeans) that had stolen all of his oxen and donkeys and killed all the servants tending to the animals (save him), another servant arrived even as the first.

The literal exposition on Job: a scriptural commentary concerning providence. [Thomas, Aquinas Saint; Martin D Yaffe; Anthony Damico].

    The book Job is composed of three parts: a prologue, an epilogue, and the main body of the tale. Many scholars are convinced that the prologue and epilogue are later additions to the original, the body of the tale; it is different in tone and portrays God in a radically distinctive manner. Let’s open our Bibles to the third chapter of the book of Job. (For this Job 3 Summary) Let’s start by reminding ourselves of the message of the book of Job. It’s this: When we can’t understand God’s ways, we must trust his wisdom. And in the first chapter of the book of Job we saw that Job could fairly well understand God’s ways.
