Text Commentary

1The Book of the Words of Job, who was called Jobab.

2On the day when he was taken ill and about to bring his stewardship to an end, he called his seven sons and his three daughters to him. 3Their names were Tersi, Choros, Huon, Nike, Phoros, Phiphe, Phrouon, Hemera, Cassia, and Amaltheias-keras. 4And when he had called his children, he said, Gather round, my children, gather round me, so that I can describe to you what the Lord did to me and everything that has happened to me. 5For I am your father Job, who has endured much; and you are a chosen, honoured, race, of the stock of Jacob, your mother's father. 6For I am of the sons of Esau, Jacob's brother; and your mother Dinah, through whom I became your father, was Jacob's daughter 1 Lit. ‘For I am of the sons of Esau, brother of Jacob, of whom is your mother Dinah, from whom I begot you’. – my former wife, with ten other children, died a bitter death. So listen to me, my children, and I will tell you what befell me.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘For I am of the sons of Esau, brother of Jacob, of whom is your mother Dinah, from whom I begot you’.
