Book of Job Chapter 8 Summary
Enter Bildad, Stage Left
- Bildad (friend #2) tells Job to repent. Why? He thinks it could have been his kids who sinned and brought this misery upon Job. Think Barty Crouch, Jr.
- Then he gets all poetic, comparing Job's suffering to a garden sown with bad seeds from his past or from his offspring.
- Hasn't your past ever come back to haunt you?
- Bildad is just trying to give the situation some sense for his buddy.
