Suffering Job

Published by notsoboringbiblequestions on

How long does the Bible say Job suffered?

It’s not in the Bible! Job had a lot of bad things happen all in one day (Job 1:13-18). Job’s friends when they heard about his troubles set out to go see him (Job 2:11). Who knows how long it took for them to hear about it, prepare for their trip and then travel to him? Then they just sat with Job for a week without saying anything (Job 2:13). Then everybody speaks to each other. Then God speaks to Job. Then God commands Job’s friends to go offer a sacrifice (Job 42:7-9). They leave and Job prays (Job 42:10) and then Job is restored.
