Carolyn Hamlett — “Job Eschewed Evil,” Vlog #3

What does it mean that Job “eschewed evil”? Perhaps the reason Job was a “perfect and upright man” is because he “eschewed” evil.

Job 1:1 (KJV)

“There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.”

Here is a link that will help you study the specific word, “eschewed”:

Correction: In this video I said that the Hebrew word that is translated as “eschewed” in Job 1:1 isn’t used very often in the OT. However, it is used more often than I had remembered. The word, “eschewed” is number H5493 in the Strong’s Concordance which matches the Hebrew סוּר (cuwr), which occurs 308 times in 283 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV.
