A native of Buz, Genesis 22:21 , which was probably a city of Edom, Jeremiah 25:23 , perhaps Bozrah, Jeremiah 49:7,8,13 . He came to condole with Job in his calamities. Young, ardent, sagacious, and devout, he listened attentively to the discourses of Job and his three friends; and at length broke in, with profuse apologies, to set them all right, Job 32:1-22 . His address to Job he blames for condemning him as a hypocrite, in their ignorance of the wonders of God's providence. In several sentences he beautifully expresses his faith in the pardoning and restoring grace of God towards sinners, Job 33:23,24,27-30 , passages in probably the oldest book of the Bible in the very spirit of the parable of the prodigal son.
