Selections from Job 8–10
Next in the “tag team match” of philosophers was a man named Bildad. If you think Eliphaz was offensive, just wait until you meet Bildad. Talk about a human porcupine! His blunt approach came across like a lecture on theology. He waxed on about the character of God, the wisdom of the past, and the evidence of nature. But none of it gave practical comfort to meet Job’s immediate needs. As with Eliphaz, Job responded first to Bildad, then to God. Job longed for an arbitrator, who would argue his case before God. His friends clearly weren’t taking his side. And God remained silent.
