Job 6 Summary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

Ch. 6 7. Job’s reply to Eliphaz

Job’s reply to the first of his three friends falls into three great sections:

First, Job 6:1-13. He defends against the remonstrances of Eliphaz the bitterness of his complaining and his despair.

Second, Job 6:14-30. He laments with sorrowful disappointment the attitude his friends have taken up towards him.

Third, ch. 7. He falls anew into a bitter lamentation over his sorrowful destiny, and appeals against God’s treatment of him in language much more direct and keen than that used in ch. 3.
