Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VI:
Prefaces.: Book of Job.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Book of Job.

This translation was dedicated to Paula and Eustochium, about the year 388. He complains that even the revision he was now making was the subject of many cavils. Men prefer ancient faults to new truths, and would rather have handsome copies than correct ones; but he boasts that “the blessed Job, who, as far as the Latins are concerned, was till now lying amidst filth and swarming with the worms of error, is now whole and free from stain.”


Next: The Psalms.
