To underscore the fact that not a single flaw had been found in Job’s character, Yahweh repeated the full fourfold description of Job’s moral excellence and added that Job continued to hold tenaciously to his integrity (Heb. tummāṯô). Job had endured all the losses without compromising his blameless and upright character in any angry outburst against God.
although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause
