But, in all the relations of life, as a husband, father, ruler, master, instructor, prophet, priest, and prince, he was a pattern of excellence and a type of Him who, alone, is perfectly blameless – who was the only righteous One, in whom divine justice can find no fault and holiness no defect – even our Lord Jesus Christ, whose cross Job bore in anticipation and in whose crown he shall shine in that day when he, with his heavenly Master, and all the host of His redeemed ones, shall see of the travail of his soul and shall be satisfied (Isaiah 53.11). – Charles A. Hulbert (1804-1888), British clergyman and author; from The Gospel Revealed to Job (1853)
