    The poet by an exquisite intuition has made God ironically accept a kind of controversial equality with His accusers. At times in our own struggles, we may move between these worlds, sometimes seeking equanimity and sometimes crying out. Job does not in any sense look at life in a gloomy way. It presents a hero who is not nearly so resigned to his fate.

    The other great fact which, taken together with this one, makes the whole work religious instead of merely philosophical is that other great surprise which makes Job suddenly satisfied with the mere presentation of something impenetrable. We may put aside the case of Job, as one complicated with religious difficulties, and take any other, say the case of the Iliad. It would be the exaggeration of censure to call them evolutionists; but they have something of the vital error of the evolutionary optimist. If prosperity is regarded as the reward of virtue it will be regarded as the symptom of virtue.

    Many rabbis who survived the Shoah rebuilt their communities, usually in the United States or Israel. He, not Job, is the star of the Book, and though he is not loving or fair, that seems to be part of the attraction. Their flesh wastes away to nothing, and their bones, once hidden, now stick out. The wicked will receive their just dues. In every human being there is a potential to create an entirely new world and this the Talmud says is the reason to preserve life and equate that life to a world of possibilities.

Whence then is evil? The Poetic Section of Job The poetic section of the Book of Job, which makes up the majority of the text Jobis much more theologically ambiguous. This, to my knowledge, is the beginning of the modern recasting of the Book of Job.

His wife encourages him to curse God and to give up and die, but Job refuses, struggling to accept his circumstances. In the epilogue, which is found in the last chapter of the book, Job acknowledges the justice of Yahweh and repents for all that he said in his own defense. Kant said that all we could do with doubts about God was admit them.

If the Jews had answered that question wrongly they might have lost all their after influence in human history. It never really occurs to him that it could possibly be a bad book.

Quite possibly the same is true of the nature poems, which are presented as words spoken by Yahweh. But is it grander and kinder? Then, in a rolling magnificat, he names the things that he has created: the earth, the sea, the night, the light, the constellations, the clouds, the winds, the dew, the rain, the snow, the hail, the frost, the thunder and lightning.

Old Testament of the Bible

This line is often incorporated into the liturgy at Jewish funerals. He goes on to the animals: the goats, the asses, the hinds, the peacocks, the ostriches, the grasshoppers.

The Song of Roland contrives to express the idea that Christianity imposes upon its heroes a paradox; a paradox of great humility in the matter of their sins combined with great ferocity in the matter of their ideas. For when once people have begun to believe that prosperity is the reward of virtue, their next calamity is obvious.

At times in our own struggles, we may move between these worlds, sometimes seeking equanimity and sometimes crying out.

He insists on the inexplicableness of everything. This statement is true for someone that has lost anyone close to them and the challenge becomes greater when they have lost almost everyone close to them as Job did with his children and his children; victims of genocide and natural disasters.

Job, convinced of his faithfulness and uprighteousness, is not satisfied with this explanation. When His Highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he worry about whether or not the mice are comfortable on board?
