At the end of the eighth chapter of the book of Job, Bildad attempts to offer the suffering servant of God some hope: “Behold, God will not reject a blameless man, nor take the hand of evildoers” (Job 8:20). Bildad was suggesting that Job could take steps to become blameless before God, but Job refuted Bildad’s theology with a very important question:

“But how can a man be in the right before God?” (Job 9:2b)
