Chapter Questions BIBL 105 part 2 2 Module 5 Chapter 19 Chapter 19: Question 1- What are some of the common characteristics of Hebrew poetry? How does biblical poetry differ from much of our modern poetry? The common characteristics of Hebrew poetry are; Meter, Parallelism, Chiasm, and Acrostics. Biblical poetry differs from modern poetry by its Parallelism; in which is two parallel lines of a verse. (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (pgs. 282-285). Chapter 19: Question 2- How would you explain parallelism to someone who had never heard of it? We would explain it by the following; “we have at least two parallel lines of verse; that is, each complements the other(s) in some way. Typically, the lines display parallelism of thought rather than parallelism of rhyme or sound.” (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (p. 282). Chapter 20 Chapter 20: Question 4- Describe the points of view of Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar. Where did they place the blame for Job’s suffering? What was Job’s response? The points of view of Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar are; "Eliphaz emphasized God's justice and purity, and taught that people (including Job) bring trouble on themselves. Bildad typically appealed to tradition and considered himself a defender of orthodox doctrine. He explained that an individual who pursues wickedness (like Job) should not be surprised by divine punishment. Zophar considered himself a rationalist , and reasoned that Job's punishment was no less than can be reasonably expected." Job’s suffering was from his friends which “where approaching the problem from the perspective of Israelite monotheism, their solutions failed to transcend the Mesopotamian

He challenged his associates to be specific about his guilt (6:24, 30), implying that God’s reproof was out of proportion to his sin. Death appeared to be the only resolution for his problems (7:16-21) (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (p. 295). Chapter 20: Question 5- How does Elihu characterize Job’s problem? To what does he attribute God’s silence? What does he see as the key to alleviating Job’s suffering? Elihu characterizes Job’s problem by; “He addressed Job directly and recapitulated the problem as one of unanswered prayer (33:13).” He attributes God’s silence by; “Elihu informed Job that God was unaffected by events on earth. If God has been silent, it was because he recognized insincerity in Job’s requests (35:13-16).” The key to alleviating Job’s suffering was that; “He informed Job and his counselors that God is just in his treatment of king and slave alike, and in any situation, repentance is the key (36:10-12).” (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (p. 30).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
