Job still does not denounce God, but he does demand an explanation for his suffering. He asks “Is there any wrong on my tongue?”(Job 6:30) because he does not understand why he, a strict follower of the Lord, is being punished so intensely without him committing any abominable
Job’s friends could not realize the bigger picture and trust in God to now that Job did nothing wrong. Conclusively, the story of Job demonstrates that human anguish can arise for reasons beyond our understanding. The age old question, is why do good people suffer while bad people prosper? But we cannot always perceive why unless God chooses to reveal his motive. However, it can be said that God is just testing that his servants will love, trust and have faith in Him no matter what.
The line “Why this is hire and salary, not revenge!” shows that he feared by killing Claudius while he was in prayer he would send Claudius to heaven, and would not have revenged his father’s death. This act shows that Hamlet is unable to act, a trait greatly contrasted by the character Fortinbras. Fortinbras is another prince in a similar situation to Hamlet’s. Instead of waiting for the timing to be perfect though, Fortinbras simply acts. He realizes the commitment he has made to revenge his father’s death and wastes no time.

Elihu believes “it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding” (Job 32:8). He tells Job he should be ashamed of himself for justifying himself in front of the Lord. Job’s three friends also receive Elihu’s wrath, since they did not solve Job’s problem, but treats him cruelly. Elihu believes suffering is a form of God’s love to “turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride” (Job 33:17).

Only I can't" (Faulkner 85). In the end, even after he has betrayed his father he still sho... ... middle of paper ... ...s and values over his loyalty to his father. What is surprising, is that he immediately seems to regret it, as is shown when he cries praises to his father in remorse.

Through recognizing his lack of knowledge and questioning his friends’ assumptions concerning God instead of blindly accepting a simple retributive view of Him, Job manages to, paradoxically, gain a sense of wisdom by just realizing what he does not know. The questioning of God’s actions is Job’s first step to gaining his wisdom. Job illustrates the danger of living in ignorance, without questioning, by being completely unprepared for the tragedies that befall him. Moreover, Job has a shift in character when he goes from blindly accepting God’s actions to questioning his motives and reasons. Job has maintained a sinless life and even God commends Job saying, “Have you considered my servant Job?

If this man does not do so, the devil will slowly injure his faith till all joy in fellowship with God is dead and so is his life. When one fully gives himself to God, but has not receive the Holy Spirit, he must just keep trusting God that His word is true and that He will do the work.
