I think that both, the epic of Gilgamesh and The book of job resembles in the sense that both of the main characters experience ``suffering´´. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, its hero experiences the loss of his soul mate Enkidu, when he spurns the love of Ishtar. Yet, in the Book of Job, Job experiences the loss not only of his family, but also his health and his possessions.

When the Epioc of Gilgamesh and the Book of Job are placed on a comparative level , clearly we can see that suffering can be a common feature since they had to endure sorrow, both lost loved people. Besides, another feature in common is the importance of trascendence. Gilgamesh was in search of inmortality and is driven to discover his human limitations and Job looked for inmortality through his descendants.

i think that The book of Job and The epic of Gilgamesh recount two different stories but, apart from it they are similar in the sense that in the two stories each main character undergo mental and spiritual suffering. In the book of Job, Job suffers the loss of his family and Gilgamesh suffers the loss of his best friend Ekidu.

Both stories , the epic of  Gilgamesh and the book of job deal  with the searching of  two gifts just for gods, that is, the  immortality and  the wisdom. For  example, Gilgamesh trying to get the inmortality   and job trying to understand  something that is beyond  human wisdom, that is, the nature of god  to act.

Epic of Gilgamesh vs The Book of Job

Two important common features I can tell between The Epic of Gilgamesh and The book of Job are, first, the suffering both undergo. Although, Gilgamesh decides to have it personlly, whereas, Job is victim of a terrible game between God and Satan. The second feature in common, is the fact tha at the end, both stories have a happy ending. Gilgamesh gets the immortality he was searching, and Job, proves his love and fear to God, and this rewards him with wealth and health, although his family is for ever lost.

Human vulnerability

First of all, Job and Gilagamesh were blessed by their gods, but both stories show the vulnerability of humankind. In the case of Gilgamesh, he is punished with the loss of his dearest companion because he spurned the affections of the Queen of Heaven. On the other hand , Job is tested by the loss of his possessions , his family and his health because God wanted to know if Jos was able to be a devoted servant of Him throughout his life . All in all, even though Job and Gilgamesh were blessed by courage and wisdom, both came to realize that misfortune and suffering are typical of human condition
