Job's Words Perfected

I've noted before that Job is tam, blameless, perfect which is related to the word tamim, spotless, without blemish. In this way Job is a sort of living sacrifice.

A form of the same word is used in 31:40 where Job's words are "ended." They are literally "perfected." The perfect man has perfected his words.
