They made an appointment together to come to show him sympathy and comfort him.Some time would have passed before Job’s friends could have heard the news, deliberate with one another, and complete their journey to Job. At this stage there are three friends. Eliphaz comes from Teman, a region known for wisdom (Jeremiah 49:7, Jeremiah 49:20). Bildad is a Shuhite, which may tell us that he is a descendent of Abraham and Keturah (Genesis 25:1–2). We have no information about Naamath, where Zophar comes from.
