Looking lawyerly in this early-16th-century painting The Prophet Job by Fra Bartolommeo, Job displays a scroll bearing Latin text that reads, “This will be my salvation” (Ipse erit salvator est), which comes from the Book of Job 13:16, part of a passage in which Job initiates a lawsuit against God, demanding to hear why he has deserved such punishment.
