Job 16

This is the 16th post of my series on Blake''s Book of Job, but 18th in the series from Blake:

Here it seems obvious that Job  and God are fully reconciled.  It's really a signal that you have become 'reborn' when you're seen praying for someone.

"And the Lord turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his Friends" (Job 42:10)

from Univ Adelaide

You might consider the daughters of Job making music in the borders of the engraving.

Job's Sacrifice
From The Book of Job
by Univ of Adelaide 
Another Plate shows Job facing forward in a cruciform pose, leading to the suggestion that "when he sees the reality of Yahweh with his own eyes, he takes on the attitude of voluntary sacrifice:
[5] I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
 [6] Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes." (Job 42:6)
(This quotation from Encounter with the Self.) (page 67)
