Testament of Job, Is it true?


  • The Testament of Job says that his first wife died and he married Dinah. According to the holy records both of these claims are false. The book of Job in the Hebrew records do not give any account of Job's first wife dying  which shows the contradiction of the Testament of Job and shows that it bears false witness against the truth that his wife didn't die. Also, Dinah is the wife of Simeon according to the Hebrew records [Jasher 45:2] so she could not have been married to Job.

Jasher 45:2

[2] And Eliuram the wife of Reuben conceived and bare him Hanoch, Palu, Chetzron and Carmi, four sons; and Simeon his brother took his sister for a wife, and she bare unto him Memuel, Yamin, Ohad, Jachin,and Zochar, five sons.

  •  Ahayah showed in the book of Tobit that a wife is appointed for a man from the beginning. Thus Dinah was appointed for Simeon from the beginning. Hence Shechem was killed for defiling her and committing adultery since she was betrothed to Simeon already.

Jasher 34:52

[52] And Judah answered his father, saying Was it for naught my brothers Simeon and Levi killed all the inhabitants of Shechem? Surely  it was because Shechem had humbled our sister, and transgressed the command of our Alahayim to Noah and his children, for Shechem took our sister away by force, and commited adultery with her.

  • The substantiating of the wives being appointed is also seen in the 7 men who tried to marry Sara, who was appointed for Tobias, so they all died in the book of Tobit.

Tobit 6:13-17
[13]Then the young man answered the angel, I have heard, brother Azarias that this maid hath been given
to seven men, who all died in the marriage chamber.
[14]And now I am the only son of my father, and I am afraid, lest if I go in unto her, I die, as the other before:
for a wicked spirit loveth her, which hurteth no body, but those which come unto her; wherefore I also fear
lest I die, and bring my father's and my mother's life because of me to the grave with sorrow: for they have
no other son to bury them.
[15]Then the angel said unto him, Dost thou not remember the precepts which thy father gave thee, that thou shouldest marry a wife of thine own kindred? wherefore hear me, O my brother; for she shall be
given thee to wife; and make thou no reckoning of the evil spirit; for this same night shall she be given thee in
[16]And when thou shalt come into the marriage chamber, thou shalt take the ashes of perfume, and
shalt lay upon them some of the heart and liver of the fish, and shalt make a smoke with it:
[17]And the devil shall smell it, and flee away, and never come again any more: but when thou shalt come
to her, rise up both of you, and pray to Alahayim which is merciful, who will have pity on you, and save you:
fear not,
for she is appointed unto thee from the beginning; and thou shalt preserve her, and she shall go
with thee. Moreover I suppose that she shall bear thee children. Now when Tobias had heard these things, he
loved her, and his heart was effectually joined to her.

•The testament of Job says his wife died with his children, but the Book of Job does not say that, neither does it give any account of his wife dying.

Testament of Job 1:6

6 For my first wife died with my other ten children in bitter death.(This is a lie because the Book of Job does not say that. Lets look at the book of Job gfor the true account.)

Job 1:18  

While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: 
Job 1:19  

And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. (So his children died, not his wife as testament of Job falsely claimed. Job actually still spoke with her after the children died to show she didnt die with the children and he spoke with her and spoke of her during his affliction)

Job 2:9 

 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse Alahayim, and die. 
Job 2:10  

But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of Alahayim, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. 

Job 19:17  

My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body. 

The testament of Job is merely a stumbling block to the world. It will make manifest those that are
approved as the servants of Yache. Hebrew records show that Job was not a convert, nor was he the
same Job, adviser to pharaoh, from the book of Jasher. May Ahayah be pleased to guide us through his

• The land of Uz is a common origin of both Job the righteous and Job the unrighteous. Let's identify where
that is.
Jasher 10:34
[34]And the children of Aram also went and built themselves a city, and they called the name of the city
Uz after their eldest brother, and they dwell therein; that is
the land of Uz to this day.

• So we have indication of what" the Land of Uz" is referring to and who founded it. It was founded
by Uz, the son of Aram, the son of Shem. Aram's lot of land given to him by his father Shem was
between the Tigris and Euphrates northward of Babylon, known as Mesopotamia today. Now let's look at the two different Jobs' to identify where they are actually from according to bloodline.


1. {Unrighteous Job}

Jasher 66:15
[15]And an officer, one of the king's counsellors, whose name was
Job, from Mesopotamia, in the land of Uz, answered the king, saying,
Jasher 67:24

[24]And the king sent and called his two counsellors Reuel the Midianite and Job the
, and they came and sat before the king.


2. {Righteous Job}

Job 1:1,3
[1]There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was
Job; and that man was perfect and upright,
and one that feared Alahayim, and eschewed evil.
[3]His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred
yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the
of all the men of the east.

• We see that the unrighteous Job  is a Uzite of the children of Uz, from Mesopotamia in the land of Uz. On the
other hand, the righteous Job is of "the men of the east" which is a son of Keturah in the land of Uz. This
shows they are not the same people by bloodline. Let us look at the blood line of Job the righteous
man of the children of the East.
Job 1:1,3,8
[1]There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one
that feared Alahayim, and eschewed evil.
[3]His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke
of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the
men of the east

• The children of the East by precept is Keturah's children.
Jasher 62:15
[15]And the children of Midian sent to
all their brethren the children of the east, and all their brethren, all the
children of Keturah
came to assist Midian to fight with Moab.

As is accounted, the children of Keturah are the children of the East. We seek all things by the precepts for edification that the law and testimony may always be in our mouth, so that we may abide
in the light. Whomever says Job converted, we beseech to reconsider and turn to the truth of the
law and testimony, because that is bearing false witness against the man. Job the man of the East was not a convert or former sinner, nor was he the same person as Job the Uzite because those are two different bloodlines.

• The testament of Job is also not true concerning Job being of the sons of Esau. The children of the East are
not Edomites by precepts, hence Job could not have been an Edomite, because those are two
different nation(bloodlines). Lets look at the precepts.

Jasher 57:33
[33]And all Midian and the children of the east betook themselves to flight from the battle, and they left
the children of Seir and fled when they saw that the battle was severe upon them, and the
children of Esau
pursued all the children of the east until they reached their land.
Jasher 58:15
[15]And the
children of Esau sent unto all the children of the east, and they made peace with them, and all
the children of the east came unto them to go with the children of Esau to Egypt to battle.

• The scriptures make a very clear distinction between Esau and Keturah's children. We assess all things by the law and testimony, so that we be not found without light.
Isaiah 8:20
[20]To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in

• We would beseech all men to do the same. It is great to understand that Esau and the children
of the East are different bloodlines, so that one can understand the Hebrew records. One can substantiate
the fact that The Children of the East(Keturah) are foreign from the blood and land of the children of Esau
by the fact that Esau's children swore not to set a king over them of their brethren or of their land, hence
they chose a man of the children of the East named, Jobab, to rule over them, which substantiates that the children of the East were not the same as the children of Esau.

Jasher 57:38-40
[38]And it came to pass in those days, that the children of Esau resolved to crown a king over them in the
land of which they became possessed. And they said to each other, Not so, for he shall reign over us in our
land, and we shall be under his counsel and he shall fight our battles, against our enemies, and they did so.
all the children of Esau swore, saying, That none of their brethren should ever reign over them,
but a strange man who is not of their brethren,
for the souls of all the children of Esau were embittered every
man against his son, brother and friend, on account of the evil they sustained from their brethren when they
fought with the children of Seir.
[40]Therefore the sons of Esau swore, saying,
From that day forward they would not choose a king from
their brethren, but one from a strange land unto this day.

• Jobab the man of the children of the East from land of Botzrah.
Jasher 58:25-26
[25]And all the people of the children of Esau, and the children of the east, returned in shame each unto his
city, for all the mighty men that were with them had fallen in battle.
[26]And when the children of Esau saw that their king had died in battle they hastened and took
a man from
the people of the children of the east; his name was Jobab
the son of Zarach, from the land of Botzrah, and
they caused him to reign over them instead of Bela their king.

• So the testament of Job is not true from its perspective of Job being an edomite or being the
same person as jobab. Also, Jobab was from the land of Botzrah, while Job was from the Land of Uz, thus they are not the same person, though they come from the same nation of the children of the East. Furthermore the name Job is not the same as Jobab and they have two different meanings. H3103 Jobab means to cry out, howl, a desert. It is a common name in arabia where the first man named Jobab, the son of Joktan, inhabited those areas.[Gen 10:29]. On the other hand, H347 Job means hated or persecuted. The names don't have the same meaning because they are not the same people.

• Jobab the Keturite of Botzrah and king of Edom


Transliteration: Yọbube
BDB Definition: Jobab =" a desert"
Strong's Definition: From H2980; howler ; Jobab, the name of two Israelites and of three foreigners: - Jobab.

• The Holy Job, the Keturite of The Land of Uz [Job 1:1]
Transliteration: iyiobi
Phonetic: eeyee-obee'
BDB Definition: Job =" hated"
Strong's Definition: From H340; hated (that is, persecuted); Ijob, the patriarch famous for his
patience: - Job

The names show that Job and Jobab are not the same people according to the Hebrew
records. There was no name change of Job from Jobab as the Testament of Job alleges. One must be mindful and diligent when searching Old Testament records translated into the
greek like Septuagint and etc, All things must align with the law and the Testimony as Ahayah said or else
it would lead a person to stumble.

In love, we encourage all nations to believe the Gospel, keep the commandments, bear the fruits of the Spirit
and learn of Yache because this is profitable unto all men. We beseech all nations not to be tossed too and fro with every wind of doctrine, for they only gender more strife, but to focus on the righteousness of obedience to the faith of Yache, by bearing the fruits of the Spirit.
Ephesians 4:14-15
[14]That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine,
by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
[15]But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
2 Timothy 2:14-15
[14]Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before The Adono that they strive not about
words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
[15]Study to shew thyself approved unto Alahayim, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly
dividing the word of truth.

• Study the law and fruits which will lead to perfection, unlike the study of many books and head knowledge because that will only lead to more heaviness if it be not in love. We are commanded to seek out of the book of Ahayah because it shall never fail.

Isaiah 34:16
[16]Seek ye out of the book of Ahayah, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for
my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

• Worldly knowledge and the making of many books without understanding the law and the Testimony
first will not profit us.

Ecclesiastes 12:12
[12]And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is
a weariness of the flesh.
Ecclesiasticus 19:24
[24]He that hath small understanding, and feareth Alahayim, is better than one that hath much wisdom,
and transgresseth the law of the most High.
Ecclesiasticus 3:21-24
[21]Seek not out things that are too hard for thee, neither search the things that are above thy strength.
[22]But what is commanded thee, think thereupon with reverence, for it is not needful for thee to see with
thine eyes the things that are in secret.
[23]Be not curious in unnecessary matters: for more things are shewed unto thee than men understand.
[24]For many are deceived by their own vain opinion; and an evil suspicion hath overthrown their judgment.

• This is why Yache had Paul admonish us to focus on departing from iniquity.

II Tim 2:16,19,22
[16]But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more unholiness.
[19]Nevertheless the foundation of Alahayim standeth sure, having this seal, the Adono knoweth them that
are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
[22]Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Adono
out of a pure heart.
