(26.) Why Job Was So Great a Sufferer.

And when he says concerning the Lord, “For many bruises hath He inflicted upon me without a cause,”14691469     Job ix. 17. observe that his words are not, He hath inflicted none with a cause; but, “many without a cause.” For it was not because of his manifold sins that these many bruises were inflicted on him, but in order to make trial of his patience. For on account of his sins, indeed, without which, as he acknowledges in another passage, he was certainly not, he yet judges that he ought to have suffered less.14701470     Job vi. 2, 3.
