comment Why did God allow satan to take lives just to prove that Job is loyal?
This is a philosophical question, not really a textual one. The question fundamentally boils down to "Why did God..." which is largely opinion-based and not answerable from the text in many cases.

comment What did the 70 elders see, if man can't see God and live?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. I made a slight edit to your post to correct a minor spelling error and to correct the italics/emphasis. If I got it wrong, be sure to edit again and/or roll back my edit.

comment How is 2 Maccabees 12:40-46 to be understood?
"Can we pray for the dead?" would be out of scope in my opinion because it would be applying the text to modern practice. Observing/describing that some do practice it today is fine, prescribing it to readers is best saved for C.SE, not here.

We do not officially teach that there is any 'second chance' or postmortem repentance, but we hold out hope for it. Check out my answer here and also this one where I've elaborated on this before if you're interested.

We (I am Eastern Orthodox) do not believe in purgatory, but we do have a concept of a purgative experience after death for some. It would be hard to explain it all in comments.
