Soon Job's 3 friends hear of all this evil [Satan] sent upon him.
So, each from his [house], into [Job's region] they rush:
  • ELiphaz {Gold-god} from Teman {Southland},
  • Bildad {Baal's-Love} from Shuach {Dell},
  • and Zophar {Skip} from Naamah {Pleasure}.
  • They all arrange to meet together [with Job.
    They intend]
    to mourn with him, to comfort him.
