completed a quick read through Job.
the ending confused me.

the struggle to understand and reconcile
the glory of God||with||the apparent lack of earthly justice

kept me riveted

but i did not expect Job to regain his wealth.

what message does this ending deliver about
tragic lives of righteous people and the fortune of those who live comfortably by crushing the lives of others?
Job is especially powerful following Proverbs; it occupies this place with much intention, taking the prescriptions of Proverbs and opening them up to rigorous and painful interrogation.
