Job’s Friends; The Morons

Job had three friends; Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite. When they first came to comfort Job, who had lost his property, children and health, they had common sense enough to keep their mouth shut.

However, as fallen and imperfect creatures are wont to do, they deviated from their original plan and started running their mouths and spewing out useless drivel. Job's friends were, simply put, morons. They didn't know what they were talking about and they, like morons, kept talking.

Common sense and basic decency states that if you can’t listen and offer something constructive, you really need to keep your mouth shut. Otherwise you will end up looking as big of moron as Job’s three “friends”.

It was only after Job had prayed for his friends that the Lord made him prosperous again..
