Abstract Job’s self-descriptions of his situation in Job 29 and 30 “in the months of old” (קדם) and “now” (עתה) picture his fall and his loss. The literary form of a 1st-person-speech gives the impression of Job creating his own cosmos with his body at the center which is rather unambiguous compared to the dialogues of Job and his friends. A close analysis of these two to corresponding chapters of the book of Job show how bodily and social experiences are intricately interwoven in the presentation of Job’s fall. His existence as a human being—in the bodily and social sphere—is thus presented as dependent on relatedness to God and to other human beings.
