JOB 2- Job’s Health- Job’s Friends Visit.

St. Gregory comments- "that since the devil has already been defeated, the Lord is chiding him for the impotence of his pride". St Hesychius teaches that the devil cannot speak without first receiving permission from God. See v. 2


The devil was unable to understand how Job could seek salvation over saving his own "SKIN" - that is, "HIS LIFE" see v. 4


Here are the remarks of St. Gregory that from the beginning, Satan has been working to destroy the Body of Christ, by inflicting spiritual wounds on God's people throughout all of history of the Jews, and continuing in his fury until he came to the very Head of the Church." See v. 7


Job even though in misery is seen as an image of Christ on the Cross. He came "in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh" (Romans 8:3). "With a shard, therefore, the pus is scraped, when sin is defeated by the flesh." St. Gregory also comments that the repentant sinner, like Job, looks "unflinchingly upon the strains of sin by which he is covered." See v. 8


St. Hesychius teaches that Satan "recruited" Job's "WIFE", as he done with Eve. St. John Chrysostom asks, "What are you saying, woman? When God needs to be ... propitiated, you are, rather, preparing to provoke Him! For it is God who has caused these bad things, He needs to be invoked, not blasphemed." And Jesus said, "He who endures to the end will be saved" (Matthew 10:22).


"JOB DID NOT SIN WITH HIS LIPS": (see v. 10, online, v. 15 Orthodox Study Bible) " When holy men undergo persecution... they not only never transgress in injurious expressions against God, but they never launch words of reviling against their very adversaries" (GrgGt).


"JOB's THREE FRIENDS" came to "COMFORT HIM", but the contrary took place, because they imagined they understood the reason he suffered such things." (See vv. 11-13 online- vv. 16-18 in the Orthodox Study Bible).
