What seems strange to me is that this whole stuff which Job and his friends say sounds so poetical, it sounds like a psalm from David. Do normal people talk like this? And why does always one person talk at a time and during the whole time the others are quiet? Why doesn’t Job interrupt his friends while they are talking? Why does always one person talk and all the others listen? Somehow this seems made up to me like a script from a movie. Job sounds like a poet. Why should a person which is angry and hurting talk like this? Why doesn’t he simply freak out? Would you talk like a poet when everything around you is falling apart? Some this doesn't seem like a real life situation could it be that Job is just a story which is supposed to teach us something but it never really happened?
