This is my second stretched out journey through Job in Hebrew. The first was done with commentaries in 2010 in a few months, the second began 15 months ago and I am in no hurry to finish.
Job's is a piety of strength that can stand the severity of all that happens to him. Job is exile in all of us, in each of us, in trouble. We need his confident determination.
So read Job. Mitchell's little book is good. Stephen Mitchell, The Book of Job, Harpur 1992, (only 125 pages) commended by Oliver Sacks and Northrope Frye. What better commendation could you want? (Or just read along with Bob. My translation will work when I finish it - my first cut is full of good intentions and bad decisions. - actually there are a few good ones too and I should pay more attention!)
