Chapter Summary

The idea of direct contact between Greek tragedy and Job were possible. It has become impossible if one has to go back Job at an earlier time than that of Deutero-Isaiah. Some themes of Jobien dialogue and Yahweh speeches are likely to take on a new importance when one remembers their place in the celebration of the feast of the equinox or vernal or autumnal, Mesopotamia, Egypt and along the Fertile Crescent: (1) the reason for the royal ideology, and (2) the traces of the seasons hinged on the renewal of nature in autumn. The reason for the royal ideology persists in the speeches of Yahweh. The idea of an intercessor, a witness or an intermediate deity appeared in the Job Sumerian. The original context of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Deutero-Isaiah; Greek tragedy; Jobien dialogue; Yahweh speeches
