Title: The Literary and Theological Function of Job’s Wife in the Book of Job
Author(s): SASSON, Victor
Journal: Biblica

Abstract :
Against a background of her family situation, the negative role of Job’s wife in her husband’s trial is analysed here. It should be noted that there is no mention of her in the Epilogue that would correspond to her being mentioned in the Prologue. Apart from never being mentioned by name, she is altogether overlooked when Job is restored to good fortune.
