Job 1:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

I. Prologue

Chapter 1

Job’s Piety. In the land of Uz[a] there was a blameless and upright man named Job, who feared God and avoided evil.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:1 Uz: somewhere in Edom or Arabia; see Lam 4:21. Job: the name probably means “Where is the (divine) father?” In Hebrew it is almost a homonym with the word for “enemy” (see note on 13:24; cf. 33:10).
