To end the story a thunderstorm rolls in and Prometheus is left chained to the rock. The Book of Job is a story about a man who “feared God and turned away from evil” (Job 1:1, ESV). He was a very wealthy man who had ten children, many livestock, and many servants. Satan speaks to God one day and God gives him permission to test Job’s faith. Satan begins by taking away Job’s children, killing his livestock,
“As long as my breath is in me, and the Spirit of God is in my nostrils, my lips will not speak falsehood, and my tongue will not utter deceit. ”Job 27:3-4 . He was pressured and pried to turn away from God and yet through it all he remained faithful. He demonstrates humanity at it’s finest hour when faced with despair and utter hopelessness he persevered and remained true.
I concurred with Job! I was not denying His existence, but I doubted His absolute justice” (45). Before his struggle, he was emotionally and spiritually connected to God and spent so much of his time studying the Jewish faith. In contrast, after he experienced living in a concentration camp he questioned God’s motives and no longer believed in absolute justice. He doesn’t believe in the same God he once did; before, he believed in a benevolent and kind father of humankind, he now can only believe in an apathetic and cold observer of the Jew’s
Rowlandson frequently alludes to the book of Job- drawing a parallel between herself and the perfect Christian martyr. By describing her captors in association with Hell, she casts them as, not only, enemies of the Puritans, but enemies of God as well. Rowlandson does suffer the wrath of her mistress; however, she is met with much kindness from other Natives. For example, she is even given a Bible by one of her “savage” captors (Rowlandson 263). She is offered food by many other Natives (Rowlandson 269).
In general, humanity forgets the message from the book of Job and at moments curses God blaming him for all humanity 's disgraces. It is important to remember how God gave Satan approval to disturb Job by leaving him in his hands. Therefore, this provides evidence that God test 's humanity, but his hand is not involved in the process, as it is represented in (Job 1:12) “The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”
Job owns seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yokes of oxen, three daughters, seven sons, and a wife-in short, prosperity. In addition, he is a respectful and religious man who worships God and lives a chaste life. However, God chooses to test Job and sets a list of punishments for him, who undergoes these challenges throughout the book of Job. There is a certain contradiction in a deity that punishes those who obey, and the story emphasizes the omniscience of God’s unique role in Job’s life. God’s seemingly capricious nature demonstrates the usage of power by an omnipotent figure, in terms of beneficence, retributive justice, and exploitation.
But eventually Job asks God: “Why should the sufferer be born to see the light? Why is life given to men who find it so so bitter?” (Job 3:20) This was the story of Job in the Bible, in which he was given misfortunes in his life after God gave him success. It was a story that has been told again and again when I am young and this made me inquired of myself, if God really exists, that is to say powerful and good, why He did not take away all the bad things in the world and replaced it by good ones?
To explain, Rowlandson compares the troubles she faces during her captivity with the hardships Job endured by expressing that she “only am escaped alone to tell the News” (Rowlandson 259). Rowlandson compares her surviving the initial attack by the Native Americans to Job’s servants escaping various tragedies in order to share the news of what happened. Likewise, Bradstreet compares her housing burning to Job losing all his possessions by explaining that she, like Job, “blest His name that gave and took” (Bradstreet 14). Both Rowlandson and Bradstreet compare their situations to the story of Job as a model to understand the meaning behind why God would give them such burdens and to help them get through their situations. Additionally, Rowlandson explains that before her captivity and before she “knew what affliction meant, [she] was ready sometimes to wish for it” (Rowlandson 288).
In the work of The Bhagavad-gītā and the work of Job both the main protagonists of each work, Arjuna and Job, seek guidance and wisdom from their respective gods. Arjuna seek for guidance from Krishna during the war and job from his god for why he has been suffering. Each god from the works responds to their person but each respond in a different way. In the work, Bhagavad-gītā Krishna gives Arjuna a straight forward answer. On the other hand, the god in the work Job does not.
This challenges everything good that Brown has ever known. Satan reveals the evil secret that exposes the sacrilege among the townspeople, including Brown’s own wife.
When talking about your life compared to death, Jobs states that we are already “naked”, which serves to show that death is the great equalizer. Using formal diction sprinkled in with personal accounts, Jobs convinces the audience that he is a man that can speak confidently about some very difficult subjects in his
The three careers I chose to examine were IT Security Administrator, Forensics Investigator, and Obstetrician Gynecologist. I chose these careers because I discovered that the employment rates for these jobs are expected to grow at a faster than average 37% from 2012-2022. This is because data security threats are growing and with more digital technology rising, more organizations have become victims of cyber crimes. The other career is what I want to be. Internet Security Administrators, also known as computer security specialists, or Internet security specialists, protect computer systems against attack. They also handle all aspects of information security. This includes teaching others about computer security, inspecting for security violations,
In future years the work we know and do will be changed. With current emerging technologies, such as the 3D printer, Wi-Fi, or mobile devices, jobs have already been impacted from what was done in the ‘olden days’ or before the introduction of these advancements. Three careers have been chosen to display how this information technology (IT) impacts on work, these careers being medicine, education, and journalism. They have been chosen based on how their careers have largely been positively impacted and changed because of these advancements. The examples below will demonstrate how IT has shown to be an overall positive addition to the work industry. Another form used to further persuade about the positiveness of IT, is how, despite its few disadvantages, mobile devices have improved and become of the most useful devices available.
