“And when they saw him from a distance, they did not recognize him. And they raised their voices and wept, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads toward heaven. And they sat with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his suffering was very great.”
- When Job’s friends heard of his troubles; they went to check on him; were deeply broken because of what had happen; and mourned with him. There are times when words are better left unsaid, but the presence of friends who care is always a blessing to those who are hurting.
