Job’s Birthday

Now this is something I recently discovered whiles reading my Bible. It is not philosophically nor Theologically correct but hey, I’m not arguing the facts.

This is a page from Job 3:10. Emphasis on the section in red.

Job 3:1 After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth.
2 He said: 3 “May the day of my birth perish, and the night it was said, ‘A boy is born!’
4 That day—may it turn to darkness; may God above not care about it; may no light shine upon it.
5 May darkness and deep shadow [a] claim it once more; may a cloud settle over it; may blackness overwhelm its light.

Job 3:6 That night—may thick darkness seize it; may it not be included among the days of the year nor be entered in any of the months.

7 May that night be barren; may no shout of joy be heard in it.
8 May those who curse days [b] curse that day, those who are ready to rouse Leviathan.
9 May its morning stars become dark; may it wait for daylight in vain and not see the first rays of dawn, 10 for it did not shut the doors of the womb on me
to hide trouble from my eyes.

When I read that I started thinking, which day is not part of the year. Then after doing a little analysis I realised that all the months of the year are either 30 or 31 days long except February, which is 28 or 29 at best, it never gets to 30.

So I conclude, Job’s Birthday must have been February 30, cause it is missing. You know, God does answer the prayers of the righteous, so this must be one heck of an answered prayer.

Have a great ya’ll
