Bildad

One of the friends of Job. He was called Bildad the Shuhite, and was one of the so-called comforters of Job, after Job's horrible sufferings.

Bildad saw suffering as a punishment for sin. He blamed the death of Job's children on their own sins, and implies that Job through his pain and anguish, is one "who knows not God" (Job 18:21).

After Job was restored by God, Bildad and his friends Eliphaz and Zophar, were instructed by God to apologize to Job, and sacrifice seven bulls and seven rams in atonement.
