A paraphrase on some parts of the book of Job by Richard Devens Download PDF EPUB FB2

The book of Job is considered being part of the poetic books (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs) in today's Bible editions. It belongs to the "writings" (hebr. ketubim) in the Hebrew Bible, which is the third part of the A paraphrase on some parts of the book of Job. book.

Lo and behold, Satan comes out and challenges God on Job's goodness. This can't end well. Some of the Hebrew prophets attempted to deal with this question insofar as it affected the nation as a whole, but the writer of the Book of Job deals with it on an individual basis.
