(bihl' dad) Proper name meaning, “the Lord loved.” One of the three friends of Job (Job 2:11 ). He is identified as a Shuhite, perhaps a member of a group of nomadic Arameans. His speeches reveal him as a defender of traditionalist theological views. He argues that a just God does not punish the innocent (Job 8:1 ). Job should admit he was suffering the just fate of the wicked (Job 18:1 ), and no person can be righteous before the awesome God (Job 25:1 ). See Job.
