    One thought on “Job”

    1. I grew up on Grand Manan Island in the 1990s, and the climate of the schools and churches was still like the 1950s We prayed and got the daily Bible story in class up until grade five I had a Baptist upbringing, and I remember being taught that the Bible really happened, that evolution had been disproved, and the like It s not that my parents were particularly religious they just got caught up in the lot after they had their wedding there My wife, who was raised United, tells me that for her, Su [...]

    2. Recently filmed by Terrence Malick it s a non literal and quite stunning take on the story Check it out if you re even vaguely interested in religion.

    3. I only vaguely knew the story of Job but since it is one of the most influential stories ever, I decided to read the book of Job This edition has a very long and boring introduction You really need the patience of Job to read it Well I don t have that so I skipped it when I was halfway through The book of Job really surprised me It wasn t at all what I expected First the form in which it is written part prose, part poetry, part playwriting The dialogues between Job and his so called friends were [...]

    5. I have read Mitchell s translation any number of times, and each reading opens new insights The text itself is often misunderstood, and the proverbial patience of Job is a great distortion, Job s attitude being anything but patient, rather ragingly impatient The Legend, Prologue, and Epilogue are undoubtedly later additions to this ancient text whose origins are lost in antiquity.The meaning of the work has been different to different readers through the ages, but thoughtful consideration of the [...]

    6. This is a very readable translation of The Book of Job However, the reader should be aware that Stephen Mitchell omits the hymn in praise of wisdom and the speech of the young man Elihu Elihu is the fourth friend of Job s who speaks following the three cycles of speeches by the Three Comforters The author explains in a note to the reader that he s left them out because he and many scholars regard those parts as later additions to the book of Job I agree that those parts may be later additions, b [...]

    7. Most people only read the first two and last chapter of this book the chapters written in prose , preferring to skip the chapters written in poetry Doing so leaves the reader with a false impression of this book The poetry chapters contain Job s questions, rants, and pleadings with his four friends and with God over the question what is the meaning of suffering Every possible meaning is entertained but without satisfying Job until God himself speaks out of a whirlwind, showing Job that God s way [...]

    8. I really enjoyed The Book of Job It s not a story I remember from my childhood It s about a very successful and blessed man with a very impressive number of children, animals and servants Then Satan intervenes, resulting in Job losing the good things in his life Even though Job becomes unhappy about his situation, he doesn t blame God for his misfortune.I think this is a story people could learn from Nowadays, people seem so eager to blame someone or something else for their own failings before [...]

    9. God s Bad Job Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends for the hand of God hath touched me Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard I cry aloud, but there is no judgment I don t know what a book like this or for that matter, Genesis is doing in Bible it is like calling in a debate from non believers, giving them a sort of voice and that is something that no officers of any religion want but I love the questions Job asked when God turned against him And why would God turn again [...]

    10. This is an excellent translation of the book of Job I highly recommend it Job is a very confusing story and the last time I read it, I did so in concert with Carl Jung s Answer to Job, which gave me some insight into Jung s mind but not into Job s.For me Job is a story that I keep returning to, along with similar works like the Bhagavad Gita Currently one of the intriguing aspects of the narrative to me is the apparently two part answer that Yaweh gives to Job The first part is what I have been [...]

    11. Job is a book from the bible I have always been oddly drawn to and Stephen Mitchell is an author I am even strongly attached to, so The Book of Job by Stephen Mitchell is obviously too great a combination to pass up And Mitchell delivers a fascinating meditation on that great book of pain, suffering, and questioning He also translates the book itself beautifully, showing what a beautiful poem it is At the same time, it remains fresh, almost contemporary in Job s outrage and his friend s respons [...]

    12. Incredible translation Scheindlin s introduction and notes are absolutely first rate If you think that the Biblical Job is the patient long suffering hero you ve heard about, you re mistaken To be sure, there is a patient Job in the story, but only for the first two chapters The rest of the poem gives us the angry, resentful, impatient, indignant Job, who gets and gives grief from his friends and calls God a tyrant whom he longs to take to court This text is amazingly subversive You can read it [...]

    13. The key to Christ is provided by the figure of Job, whose suffering prefigures that of Christ The almost unbearable impact of the Book of Job resides not so much in its narrative frame the Devil appears in it as a conversational partner of God, and the two engage in a rather cruel experiment in order to test Job s faith , but in its final outcome Far from providing some kind of satisfactory account of Job s undeserved suffering, God s appearance at the end ultimately amounts to pure boasting, a [...]

    14. Job is the eighteenth book of the Bible It is inspired by God I was struggling before I read this book, there was a major part of me that didn t want to read it After reading it though I am much at peace with it I think I finally know why it is part of the Bible and why it is very important Job attempts to answer the two questions we often ask First why do bad things happen to good people and secondly its opposite why do the evil ones seem to prosper The best answer to the first is found in Eli [...]

    15. WrensReads Review Sidenote The reason for such vague and short and eh words on each of these books, is because I wasn t challenging the study of the Bible when I read these I was challenging myself to read the whole Bible in a year because I knew it would be discipline to keep at it daily I do, however, plan to pick up a book and study what it is saying Those will be longer reads and notes.So here is my review from my Read the Bible in a Year challenge Usually just snippets of thoughts and rand [...]

    17. Iguess at a certain age one s mind tends to turn to the ultimste questions I took up Job in a Philosophy of Religion class I took as and undergraduate a long time ago , bit was inspired by the Coen Brothers film, A Serious Man , a humorous look at his distinctly unfunny and somewhat obscure book of the Old Testament, to revisit it.This modern translation by English scholar,is excellent and with help from the author s terrific introduction successfully brings forth what the essential theme of Jo [...]

    18. I remember hearing this story a lot as a child, and after reading it again, it remains one of my favorites This story is the perfect example of the commonly asked question, Why do bad things happen to good people Sometimes, we need to be tested We need to have faith that everything will get better, and to trust that there s a reason behind everything, even if we cannot comprehend it.Job is so loyal to God, and when Satan tells God that if he takes away Job s blessings, he will turn his back on G [...]

    19. A beautiful book It s very much sad in the beginning, but then it s so cool when God speaks to Job It really shows that your life will get so much better, when you let God in to your heart It completely changes the definition of happiness.

    20. Un enorme serie di domande, riassumibili in fondamentalmente due perch mi capitano cose brutte perch devo morire A farle Giobbe, il pi puro fra gli uomini E il discorso ad absurdum fattosi Parola Se al pi puro fra gli uomini capitassero solo cose atroci la perdita di tutte le sue ricchezze, la morte dei figli, essere ricoperto di pustule e pus , come potrebbe non rinnegare Dio Ovvero Si pu non rinnegare Dio anche se non si ha nulla e si solo dolore E questa la provocazione di Satana Satana non s [...]

    21. A bright Future In the Jewish mysticism which is called the Zohar written by rabi Shemone it is written that since man and woman has been thrown out of the Garden of Eden they were disconnected from the light of God and they desire the light except they try to quench their desires through materialism, sex, drugs, alcoholism These are all only instant gratifications to try to fill the emptiness of the light We all must strive to keep our faith and belief in God in order to obtain the light even t [...]
