Job the Long-suffering

:"Job is considered the model of patient endurance of every suffering that God sends upon us, and a type of the suffering of the Lord Jesus." — ''[[Prologue from Ohrid|Prologue of Ohrid]]''
:"The Book of Job is divided into five parts which consist of the prologue and epilogue written in prose form, and three middle parts expressed in the beauty of language that can be found only in poetry. The dramatic appeal of the life of Job goes beyond the principle of the triumph of good over evil, extending to a philosophy by which the religion of [[Jesus Christ]]'s followers is enhanced, the simple philosophy which puts real meaning into the commonly quoted phrase 'Keep the faith.' In his many long hours of trial Job had no need to be reminded to keep the faith, but in keeping it he solidified it for all mankind, particularly for those masses of humanity who have had more than their share of suffering. He helps the more fortunate in counting out of their blessings." —[] <!-- links to]--->
Job is also mentioned in the [[Book of Ezekiel]] (14:14,20), along with [[Noah]] and [[Prophet Daniel|Daniel]], as among the most [[righteous]] men. The Book of Job is referred to in the [[Book of Hebrews|Epistle to Hebrews]] 12:5, and in the
[[I Corinthians|First Epistle to the Corinthians]] 3:19.
