Transcript of Bradbury's allusion to thr Book of Job in Fahrenheit 451

JOb's friends gave him misleading advice and mistakingly blamed his sufferings on his personal sins, assuming his past actions were "wicked". He thought it made sense at the time but Job refused to insult god and kept faith. God knew Job had been misguided so he spoke to Job to reassure him. "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?" As soon as Job confessed to falling off track a bit and not understanding, God blessed him with much more than he had before.
Faber read to Montag The Book of Job which is a part of the bible that challenges Job to remain faithful to God while going through hardships. Montag has a bullet in his ear, trusting Faber to say all the right things, having faith the bullet will do everything it needs to do. Montag is in danger and could be killed if people found out about that bullet. Faber is hidden away in the comfort of his own home while Montag is out in the world taking a big risk. Soon Montag gets suspicions of Faber's goals and orderand is tired of doing things. The whole situation is based on Montag having to trust Faber and taking a leap of faith off of little that he knows.
