HMMMMM, what would you do?

Having finally learned that he had killed his father, married his mother, and witnessed his mother kill herself, Opedius cuts out his eyes.

What if you're actually innocent?

In chapter 3, as Job begins his poetic speeches by cursing the day he was born. This central section consists of the “comforting” words of his friends, who try to persuade Job that if he is suffering he must have sinned, and Job’s increasingly bitter retorts that he is innocent, and that his punishment is undeserved. Which are signs of what an innocent man would do.
