Even The Wrong Get It Right Sometimes

Massive portions of the book of Job are wrong. I'm referring to the sections where Job's "friends," Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar each give lengthy, but wrong assessments of Job's circumstances. They are ignorant of God. While attempting to educate Job, they routinely offer long discourses that are mostly untrue. Every once in a while, however, they offer a spot-on truth about God.

God is so Holy that even the heavens are not pure in His sight. Man does drink iniquity like water.

People think of the Job story as an account of godly suffering, but it really is an account of a "pity-party" where Job is upset that God is God & can do what He wants with His creation & His creatures.
