Notes: Genesis 34:1-35:29, Job 22

Genesis 34:1-35:29Job 22

Bible Narrative Project

Genesis: Men were far too willing to part with their foreskins in the old days. Very strange. Ben-oni: son of my sorrow. Apparently firstborns inherit their father’s concubine (unless they do so prematurely)? Jacob is back in Bethel where he is supposed to be, so the blessings are reaffirmed, as is his new name Israel.

Job: Now Eliphaz goes beyond Bildad and Zophar and accuses Job of specific sins when his only proof is Job’s suffering. The “counsel” of his friends is its own kind of suffering, adding to all the suffering Job has already gone through.
