All my study books are packed, so I used e-Sword to look up 'patience' in their dictionary.
Not being as quick as some, I puzzled a little over the first entry.
I don't read Hebrew, and it is a Hebrew word.
'Iyob' is how it was transliterated.
It means, 'hated, persecuted'.
And the helpful little side note said, '(like Job was opposed)'.
I never thought of patience that way.
After I read and copied and considered all eight Biblical words translated as 'patience',
(and their seven root words),
and moved on through twenty-one words translated as 'hope',
(and their several root words),
and looked at the two words translated as 'endurance',
I decided to begin again with entry one and see what verses used this 'hated, persecuted' word.
There was a man in the land of Uz,
whose name was Job;
and that man was perfect and upright,
and one that feared God, and shunned evil.
So I looked up the next one.
And it was so, when the days of their feasting were ended,
that Job sent and sanctified them,
and rose early in the morning,
and offered burnt-offerings according to the number of them all;
for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts.
Thus did Job continually.
I double checked my reference.
I looked it up in the KJV+
(which numbers each word by its Hebrew and Greek word definitions
according to the Strong's concordance -- a lovely reference for wanna-be scholars).
That's his name?
That's his name.
