Known witnesses to the text of this writing include four Greek manuscripts, a fragmentary fifth century Coptic manuscript, and a Slavonic version reconstructed from three manuscripts. The goal of this edition was to create as closely as possible the basic text that presumably lies behind the present forms of two codices. There was an attempt to be faithful to the Greek while aiming for English readability. On the left pages is the Greek text. On the right is the English. This is the Book of Job, who is Jobab. Job, being ill at the end of his life, speaks to his ten children.
