Study 4 From the Book of Job is: Job 8:1 – 9:24. Bildad's first speech and Job's reply

  1. To what authority does Bildad appeal for what he says? How trustworthy do you think that authority is? What are Bildad's views (a) about God, and (b) about wicked men?
  2. What difficulties does Job find in this way as he tries to make God explain Himself?
Notes
  1. 8:4. A cruel remark. Job's children died because they sinned, according to Bildad.
  2. 8:11. Reeds wither without water. So wicked men fade away.
  3. 9:2. The meaning is, 'How can a man establish his righteousness before God?
  4. 9:13b. Rahab is probably another name for the dragon. . See RSV mg. Note to 9:8b.
