Dear Chris:

Job lived in the land of (WC ארץ עוץ which apparently was within the kingdom of Moab (Jeremiah 25:20, Lamentations 4:21). That Jeremiah is the only one who elsewhere in Tanakh mentions the land may be an indicator of the date for the book and person.

As for the land of Nod, that was antediluvian and if the flood was world wide as Noah‘ sons reported, it was completely destroyed and there is no way we can find it today.

Karl W. Randolph.
