"There is no end to your iniquities."

Job makes effective counter-arguments. He also makes an astounding prophesy: “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.”

Job makes effective counter-arguments. Eliphaz gets nasty. Job responds by noting that they’re not only wrong, they’re miserable comforters.

Miserable comforters are you all.
