One of the most outstanding features I could notice in both stories is the suffering of loss. In "The Epic Gilgamesh" suffering is caused by death.Gilgamesh losses his beloved friend Enkidu because of Ishtar's wrath. Similarly, suffering can be found in the "Book of Job" from the Hebrew Bible. Job, a righteous and respectful man faces the dreadful loss of his family and all his possessions. He must endure the will of his god and keep`faith despite adversity.
Both "stories" are very rich in meaning and lessons should be learned from them.

Gilgamesh and Job

At first sight I could't find features that would lead me to some kind of comparison. But after reflecting it over and over, the  characteristic which is highlighted from the beginning is that both characters are tested in suffering due to supernatural affairs. Gilgamesh loses his friend Enkidu who was killed by the goddess Inanna. On the other hand, Job undergoes the loss of all his possessions occasioned by a bet made between Yahweh and Satan.

Job and Gilgamesh

One feature between Job and Gilgamesh was the family. Both loved them but the difference was that Job had a big family with seven sons and three daugthers and Gilgamesh had only one best friend that he considered his brother. So when both of them lost their family they suffered and reacted in different way for example Gilgamesh looked for immortality and Job was still loyal to God.

Job and Gilgamesh are tested by supernatural forces

In the book of Job Satan was prowling about on earth, God tells him not to interfere in Job's life since he was his beloved man on earth as Job was humble, faithful to God, but Satan tells God he is faithful to you because he is blessed, he has many reasons to be an honest man who fears God. Then, God allows (chapter 2, 6) Satan to interfere   and Job suffers certain misfortunes.
In the epic of Gilgamesh, he is punished by Innana  (Ishtar), the queen of heaven when he rejects her love as is reflected on line 14 in the epic of Gilgamesh. In revenge, the godness of love, Innana, takes Endiku's life, who was the best friend of Gilgamesh.
