Job 1:10-17

Wow! In the final verses of Job, when the writer celebrates that Job has been blessed with restored friendships, a profitable agricultural business, children, and a long life, special attention is given to his daughters! His three daughters are named and it is mentioned that they were given an inheritance alongside their brothers! This is shocking because the book of Job seems to reference a time before the Mosaic law and the latest possible date of its being penned would have been during the post-exilic age of Israel. This means that one of our earliest monotheistic worshippers of God treated his daughters with the same respect or more than his sons. How is that for a biblical precedent?
