Job 1-3

  1. 1:1-2:6. What is said her about Job’s:
    (a) character,
    (b) position in life, and
    (c) sufferings?
  2. 2:7-3:26. In 2:10 Job expresses his faith in God.
    In 3:11 he wants to die; and in 3:23 he blames God for his troubles.
    How are we to account for this change?


  1. 2:13. The seven-day silence of Job’s friends is a rite of mourning for a man they consider as good as dead, struck down because of his sins.
  2. Compare 3:1-26 with Jer. 20:14-18.
