This portrayal of Job's suffering as a test of his belief in God is dramatically and expressively. Its symmetrical form (Chorus, Alto-Recitative, Trio, Alto-Recititative, Chorus) can be seen as symbolic and the question "Was ist der Mensch?" (What is human being?), which is expressed in several melodic-harmonic variations in the opening chorus, seems to symbolically represent the search for the answer. The recitative and arioso call for four solo voices but a choral performance of these sections is also possible. Scoring: strings,, Timpani.
