WORDSThe book of Job is all talk. Whereas most books of the Bible give accounts of human actions and movement, the narrative in Job is mostly a small group of men sitting around talking, and much of the dialogue is patently misguided, even by Job himself, until God speaks at the end of the narrative!MISERYJob’s losses evolved into greater misery with the incessant flow of words coming at him. Making matters worse, he responded. The continual process of situation analysis by all those engaged in talk intensified the misery.What is important to understand here is that Job started it. After all the disaster, along came Job’s three friends. They sat with him and said nothing for seven days and nights: “So they sat down with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spoke a word to him: for they saw that his grief was very great.” Job 2:13Then Job broke the silence: “After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.” Job 3:1
