"I like to call the friends of Job the “so-called” friends of Job for the way they allow their opinions and disagreements to torment him when he’s so vulnerable. These arguments are presented for us in a public hearing on why all this evil has come upon Job. Job himself has already put himself in the position of acceptance, under God, of what had happened. We
see this revealed early in the book when Job says to his wife, “Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” (JOB 2:10). Eliphaz, a Temanite, is one of the named friends of Job. They started out well, when they first came to Job they mourned with him for seven days. Eliphaz is the first to break the silence by bringing his opinion
forward. He asks Job, “If one attempts a word with you, will you become weary?” (JOB 4:2). Our study today looks at the on-going response of Job to Eliphaz.
