אִיּוֹב pr.n., Job, an Arab of the land of Uz, a man remarkable both for his wealth and piety, tried by God with calamities of every kind; mentioned only [in the Old Test.] in the book that bears his name, and in Ezekiel 14:14, 20 Ezekiel 14:20LXX. Ἰώβ, Arab. أَيُّوبُ The name properly signified a man persecuted (from the root אָיַב as יִלּוֹר one born, from יָלַד), and it appears to refer to the calamities which he endured. Others take it as serio resipiscens, i.q. Arab. أَوَّابُ (from the root אוֹב, آبَ to return); comp. Kor. Sur. xxxviii. 40-44, but see against this opinion in Thes. p.81, Col 1:1-29.
