In the field of hermeneutics, Paul Ricoeur has fashioned a general theory of interpretation that holds promise for biblical studies. This work applies Ricoeur's theory to the interpretation of the Book of Job. Focusing on the theophany section of this biblical tale (chapters 38-41), and specifically on the works of Job in response to the divine speeches (Job 40:4-5 and 42:2-6), this study offers a philological analysis and phenomenological commentary on the sense and reference of these enigmatic texts.
