Job 2:11-13

Job's friends come to help him

11 Three of Job's friends heard about his troubles and so they decided to visit him. The first friend was called Eliphaz. He lived in a place called Teman. The second friend was called Bildad. He lived in a place called Shuah. The third friend was called Zophar. He lived in a place called Naamah. They came because they wanted to help Job. 12 When they came near enough to see Job, they did not recognize him. He looked so ill. They were so sad that they tore their clothes. Then they put ash on their heads and cried a lot. 13 For a whole week, they sat on the ground near Job. All that time, they knew how bad his pain was. So they did not say anything to him.
