Bildad: Son of contention, one of Job's friends. He is called "the Shuhite,"
probably as belonging to Shuah, a district in Arabia, in which Shuah,
the sixth son of Abraham by Keturah, settled
(Genesis 25:2) He took part in
each of the three controversies into which Job's friends entered with
(Job 8:1; 18:1; 25:1) and delivered three speeches, very severe and
stern in their tone, although less violent than those of Zophar, but
more so than those of Eliphaz.
