I thought that the "stone/bread" option was a SECULAR choice? I remember that the two answers I was considering (Job and another... possibly stone-bread?) looked really good. But only the Job one was religious and the other one was not. Since the point was to mirror the passage as closely as possible, I went with Job. Further, I don't think it required outside information. "Job" and "biblical" could have been replaced with, say, "Hamad Al'grabah" and "koranical" (sic) and I would have chosen that anser... and I know bugger all about Islam. I'm just sayign that it boiled down to a secular and a religious theme in the two answers I was considering.
People smarter than I have been all over this problem, though.
