Bil´dad the Shuhite, one of the friends of Job, and the second of his opponents in the disputation (Job 2:11; Job 8:1; Job 18:1; Job 25:1). The Shuah of which the Septuagint makes Bildad the prince, or patriarch, was probably the district assigned to Shuah, the sixth son of Abraham by Keturah, and called by his name. This was doubtless in Arabia Petra, if Shuah settled in the same quarter as his brothers, of which there can be little doubt; and to this region we are to refer the town and district to which he gave his name, and in which Bildad was doubtless a person of consequence, if not the chief.
