     Job is perhaps the earliest book of the Bible. et in the period of the patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph), it tells the story of a man who loses everything-his wealth,his family, his health-and wrestles with the question, Why?

     The book begins with a heavenly debate between God and Satan, moves hrough three cycles of earthly debates between Job and his friends, and concludes with a dramatic "divine diagnosis" of Job's problem.  

    In the end, Job acknowledges the sovereignty of God in his life and receives back more than he had before his trials.  Iyyob is the Hebrew title for this book, and the name has two possible meanings.  If derived from the Hebrew word for "Persecution", it means "Persecuted One", It is more likely that it comes from the Arabic word meaning "To Come Back" or "Repent", If so, it may be defined "Repentant One".  Both meanings apply to the book.  

     The Greek title is Job, and the Latin title is Iob.
