Then they sat down on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights with no one speaking a word to him, for they saw that his pain was very great.

“O that you would be completely silent,
And that it would become your wisdom!

I was mute and silent,
I refrained even from good,
And my sorrow grew worse.

Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise;
When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.

Let him sit alone and be silent
Since He has laid it on him.
