Read it out loud

I have been reading Job - out loud - to see if it grammars. It grammars, good my friends - and I correct a few details while I go. Read it out loud - hear for yourself. Job is Christ Jesus in a figure. - "The root of the thing is determined in him." I may not be able to read the New Testament - but I can hear it in the Old - just by the knowledge of God that is in those remarkable words. Hear behind the whole that immense, inimitable, and eternal humour. I got as far as chapter 23 - and my wife has returned so I won't read any more 'out loud' at the moment. I think 2 hours is sufficient for the oral presentation - don't forget the irony implied in the quotation marks.
