So many give up man on their marriage quickly. Your still fighting, and growing. That's just about all you can ask. Life is tough, but there is a victory ahead. Marriage is tough, but you can grow a little here and there and one day have a better marriage for it. I would like this character called job I study on Tuesday and I thought I like to act it out in bethel chapel with his words in the holy bible what can I do.
Job's children didn't "spring back to life" they were in heaven so when he and his 7 sons and 3 daughters die he will be in heaven with double the amount of children. Yes it could be her because there is no mention that his wife left him She could not have been near him but i think she did help him by cooking for him, helped him with water to wash the boils over his body etc I get lost when mention is of the children without Job was too righteous to an extent that he would not pervert from God's ways He would rather choose to forgive than to divorce her. Abraham had many children after sarahs death.
We read before Job and see things how they took place. I personally believe Job had children by either concubines or another wife. Seeing they had many back then. This is so true I have written a paper about Job's wife I have by chelle. I based my Masters Thesis in on that very idea, that she was portrayed in such a negative light because "barak" has always been translated as "curse" rather than "bless". It was titled "Bless God and Die I enjoyed researching and writing it very much.
There is no mention of God being angry with his wife. May be Job prayed for her forgiveness and she also realised and accepted God's will. She lost everything Job lost plus him for a period of time.
I agree with so many if the comments above. In reply to I considered writing a book by Sheila. In reply to Shelia , write the book.
God in Christianity
In by Anonymous. The trials was Job's and the pain wouldn't be much if the wife sides with him. The ultimate beyond the many of our individual unanswered questions is that Job did not sin according to the Book and he did not disappoint God. Why would Job, then, tell his wife 'you speak as one of the foolish women' if it were translated 'bless' rather than curse? The devil was purely using her as this was even what he said to God that 'he would curse you to your face!

He spoke through Job's wife and Job rebuked it. This was not a blessing but a curse from her lips. I think that Jobs wife has a good character. With their love to each other, they were so bless with 10 children. Jobs wife is an extra ordinary wife, she lost 10 children, lost their livestocks, almost lost everything. Job is suffering from a decease but Jobs wife remain faithful caring and loving her husband amidst severe pain. She saw the agony, her interpretation of the current situations was they were cursed.
Her words "curse God and die" Jobs line of words to her enduring wife "you speak like one of those foolish women" job was actually encouraging his wife not to be like the other foolish women. Jobs wife is an amazing wife, the Bible never mentioned she was cursed and I believed their relationship with Job was restored. In reply to I think that Jobs wife has a by Loa. I have the same opinion- she came to the rnd of her rope with all the tragety she went yhriugh and to see the love of her life sufferingas he was she couldn't take any more.
He didn't rebuke her harshly- there is no exclamation mark. He seemed to be encouraging her- he did not call her foolish but said she sounded like one of tge foolish women. A person of his intellagence would not have chosen a foolish women for a wife nor would his family encourage such s yhing. She would have suffered so much lossand ridicule from neighbours.
It is hard yo handle even losing one child - consider what she must have gone through- it is no wonder she had a nervous break down. She did not counter her husband after his comment. I beleive they truely loved one another. Jewish Women's Archive. Meyers, Carol, General Editor. Women in Scripture. New York: Your name.

Steve 1 year ago. Joy 8 months ago. Loren White 3 years ago. History is long, but individual life is short. Hence the human view is fragmentary; events justify themselves in the end, but the person concerned does not always live to see the denouement. In the words of the psalmist: "Though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever" —10; cf. The brevity of man's years is further complicated by his lack of insight.
God's purpose is beyond his comprehension: "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts" Isa. In the final analysis, biblical theodicy calls for faith: "But the righteous shall live by his faith" Hab. It is not an irrational faith: — Certum est quia impossibile est Tertullian, De Carne Christi , 5 , but is necessitated by innate human intellectual limitations.
In another direction the problem is even more formidable. God, the Bible states categorically, hardened Pharaoh's heart; nevertheless the Egyptian ruler was punished for this. Indeed his obduracy was induced in order to provide the occasion for his punishment Ex.
Here the fundamental norms of justice by any standards are flagrantly violated. The explanation in this sphere of biblical theodicy is not theological but semantic. Scripture ascribes to God phenomena and events with which He is only indirectly concerned. However, since God is the author of all natural law and the designer of history, everything that occurs is, in a deep sense, His doing.

Even in human affairs the king or the government is said to "do" everything that is performed under its aegis. Thus God declares in Amos "And I caused it to rain upon one city, and I caused it not to rain upon another city," although the next clause uses passive and impersonal verbal forms to describe the same occurrences. The processes of nature need not be mentioned, since the laws of the universe are dictates of God. Similarly Exodus states indiscriminately that "Pharaoh hardened his heart" , that "the heart of Pharaoh was hardened" , and that "the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh" In the end it is all one; what God permits He does.
This interpretation does not, however, fit another area of divine conduct. Uzzah, the Bible states, was struck dead for an innocent act that was motivated by concern for the safety of "the ark of God" II Sam. Wherein lay the iniquity? Here the reason appears to be of a different character. Even innocent actions may in certain circumstances be disastrous. Uzzah's attempt to save the ark from falling was well meant, but it was conducive to irreverence. Man needs God's help; God does not require the help of man Sot. In one thoughtless moment Uzzah could have reduced the sacred ark in the eyes of the people to the impotent level of the idols, which the prophets depicted with such scathing mockery.
The same principle operated in the tragedy of Nadab and Abihu, and Moses explained the underlying principle in the words: "I will show Myself holy among those who are near Me" Lev.
