Themes from The Book of Job and The Epic of Gilgamesh
Job went through a time of physical pain. "Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head."
Job was chastised and physically pained by Satan to test his faith in God.
Job cried out, "My God, Why?"
After everything that Job had experience and went through, he wanted answers and he wanted to know why he was being punished. He could not possibly understand. Job wanted to know why the Lord was putting Job through the hardships.
