The Book of Job (in the
Bible's Old Testament) is a long poem. The Book of Job discusses why innocent
people suffer. God cares about people who suffer troubles. And God will help
them, although sometimes they must be patient.
Job was a good man. But Job
lost all his possessions. Job's children died. Job became so ill that he wanted
to die. But Job refused to insult God.
Job's friends supposed that
Job was ill because of his evil deeds. But Job was innocent. Then, a wise man
named Elihu explained the truth to Job and his friends. And God proved to them
that God is great. God also showed them that he cares. Finally, God wanted Job
to pray for his friends. In the end, God made Job successful again.
