Description: The book of Job raises one of the most important and complicated questions of Old Testament exegesis. The three friends Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar demand that Job reflect on the relationship between God and man - quite in the context of tradition - but ultimately they still are condemned by God. The study investigates the original form, the character and meaning, and the biblical and ancient oriental background of the speeches of Job's friends and their role in the overall context of the poetic book of Job
