Job’s experiences and the remarks of the three were like poison-tipped arrows that pierced him. To a certain extent, he was blaming God for permitting the experiences. Job was feeling a great loss and weakness, and as he meditated on his woeful condition, or estate, it got worse and worse. Later chapters provide details of the “terrors of God” that Job had experienced during the seven days of silence. In addition to his not eating or drinking for that period of time, all kinds of thoughts went through his mind and spirit.
