Job’s Jeremiad

Job’s jeremiad
Suffering in submission
An unfailing faith

While Silver’s ‘word of the week’ – “jeremiad” derives from the name of the prophet Jeremiah, it is the book of Job which I took as inspiration. His faith is demonstrated for example in his statement at Job 19:25, ” I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth”, and he is held up as an example of patience in suffering in James 5:11.
