        son of contention, one of Job's friends. He is called "the
        Shuhite," probably as belonging to Shuah, a district in Arabia,
        in which Shuah, the sixth son of Abraham by Keturah, settled
        (Gen. 25:2). He took part in each of the three controversies
        into which Job's friends entered with him (Job 8:1; 18:1; 25:1),
        and delivered three speeches, very severe and stern in their
        tone, although less violent than those of Zophar, but more so
        than those of Eliphaz.
