(For ESC)
Thanks again for your insight. The other question about Job's reference to his children (when they would have been dead) being repulsed by him is no longer of interest to ESC since the question stemmed from a reading of questionable translation. Other translations speak of little children or wicked children (not Job's children).

BTW, there is a thread on the web that suggests that Job was an Edomite and that he might possibly have been Jobab, a leader of the Hyksos people which invaded and ruled Egypt about the time Joseph would have been transported there. It contains a lot of speculation, but you might be interested in seeing what the purported "scholar" has "uncovered."

Again, thanks for responding.
