Name The book of Job offers an extended meditation on virtue as Aristotle describes it in the Nicomachean Ethics, especially the virtue of friendship. The prologue sets the scene, in which we see that Yahweh considers Job 'a blameless and upright man who fears god and turns away from evil' (1.8). Satan challenges that claim and suggests that Job is 'blameless and upright' because He has developed the habits of virtuous living, such as offering burnt offerings on behalf of his children. His immediate community, i.e., his family, consists of similarly virtuous people who insulate him from evil influences. His nature predisposes him to turn 'away from evil,' so living such a life represents little difficulty for him. He sees a cause and effect relationship between the life he lives and the prosperity he enjoys.After Satan inflicts Job with 'loathsome sores,' Job persists in his 'integrity,' which means that Job Refuses to accept blame for his misfortune. Continues to offer burnt offerings to Yahweh even though his children have all died. Accepts what has happened to him as his 'fate,' that is, whatever Yahweh inflicts on him, good or bad. Refuses to end his suffering by taking his own life.Eliphaz the Temanite suggests to Job that he is suffering misfortune because God tests those whom he loves with misfortune to make them stronger. No one is perfect, so Job must have done something at sometime to deserve this suffering. Job is suffering the consequences of an ancestor's unrighteousness. God sends misfortunes even to the righteous to humble them.Bildad the Shuhite suggests to Job that he is suffering misfortune because His children paid the price for their wickedness, and he is suffering as a consequence of their sins. It is the nature of human existence that everyone must suffer at one time or another. Thinking that he is blameless before the creator is sinful. He is unwilling to admit his guilt and repent.Zophar the Naamathite suggests to Job that he is suffering misfortune because Job is unaware of his own guilt and offends god with his claims of innocence. God requires all human beings to repent whether or not they have sinned. God has his own, inscrutable reasons, so Job should simply accept his fate. Punishment from god is commensurate with the wickedness of the sufferer, so Job must have sinned in secret.
