Introduction to The Hollow

Job’s Friends

Job 20:1-9

One would have thought that such an excellent confession of faith as Job made in Job 19 would satisfy his friends, or at least mollify them, but they do not seem to have taken any notice of it.

He asserts, in general, that the prosperity of a wicked person is short and his ruin sure.
